Daily Show host Jon Stewart sarcastically joined in the outrage over North Korea’s alleged cyber-attack against Sony Entertainment on Monday, saying that not even the National Security Agency (NSA) would go to such lengths in revealing compromising emails.
“At least when we spy on us, we have the decency not to leak mean sh*t about Angelina Jolie,” Stewart said. “Monsters.”
The U.S. has continued to accuse Kim Jong-Un’s government of being linked to the massive Sony hack by a group calling itself the “Guardians of Peace.” The attack not only exposed personal information for hundreds of employees, it brought to light sexist and racist remarks by several Sony executives, as well as one email by movie producer Producer Scott Rudin calling Jolie “a minimally talented spoiled brat.”
But the real crime, Stewart said, was that the hack led to the the Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy The Interview being temporarily shelved before ultimately being released online and on a limited theatrical basis.
“Listen, North Korea, you can mess with a lot of things,” Stewart said. “Our postal system, our water supply. But when you start f*cking with our holiday releases — the precious cinematic delights we partake in to avoid having to talk to our families — you’ve stepped on a landmine.”
Watch Stewart’s commentary, as posted online on Monday, below.
