Sony Hack: North Korea Calls Barack Obama a ‘Monkey’ after Internet blackout

North Korea has sparked outrage after referring to Barack Obama as “a monkey in a tropical forest”, while accusing America of orchestrating an internet blackout in the Sony Pictures hack row.

The rogue state released a statement this morning claiming the United States was responsible for internet outages in recent days, as the two countries continue their confrontation over the film The Interview.

North Korea experienced Internet problems last weekend and a complete outage of nearly nine hours before links were largely restored on Tuesday.

American tech companies have said that disruption could have been due to technological glitches or a hacking attack, and US officials said Washington was not involved.

But North Korea’s National Defence Commission said this morning: “The United States, with its large physical size and oblivious to the shame of playing hide and seek as children with runny noses would, has begun disrupting the Internet operations of the main media outlets of our republic.

“It is truly laughable.”

In the statement carried by the country’s official KCNA news agency, a spokesman is also reported to have used a racial slur to describe Obama when criticising the release of The Interview, saying: “Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest.”
