Sony will be losing an estimated $60 million on this whole ordeal and choosing to not show this movie. Many like Dr Rod Rohrich have come forth, saying that this is a huge mistake and we are giving up the right for free speech.
“Sony is a corporation, it suffered significant damage,” President Obama said in response to a question. “There were threats against its employees. I am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. Having said all of that, yes, I think they made a mistake.”
He then went on to say, “I wish they had spoken to me first,” he said. “I would have told them, ‘Do not get into a pattern in which you are intimidated by these kind of criminal threats.’”
Sony has sense gone on to say that they had no choice because most theaters were choosing not to show in on Christmas day and they are now working on a way to show it even though they said they had no plans prior.
