George Clooney: Hollywood Showed No Balls
George Clooney sent a petition to the most powerful people in Hollywood — asking them to take a stand against the cyber-terrorists and in favor of freedom — yet not a single person would sign.
Clooney wrote his petition before Sony pulled the plug on “The Interview.” It reads, “We know that to give in to these criminals now will open the door for any group that would threaten freedom of expression, privacy and personal liberty … we will not stand in fear.”
The actor told Deadline, no one wanted to be the first to sign their name, and it was clearly out of blind fear. A frustrated Clooney said, “We cannot be told we can’t see something by Kim Jong-un, of all f***ing people.”
Clooney believes what was really going on is that everyone was afraid their emails would be hacked, so they compromised freedom of expression to save their own hides.
Clooney would not name names.
