Paramount Cancels Team America Screenings

In the wake of Sony Pictures canceling its release of The Interview, some theaters with actual 🤬 opted to show Team America: World Police as a protest. No such luck. In a truly staggering act of cowardice, Paramount appears to be telling theaters to shut it all down.

This insane cancellation ostensibly comes from the same insane security concerns Sony Pictures folded to when it cancelled The Interview. Namely, the threat of full-on terrorist attacks at theaters by the Guardians of Peace, a organization that so far has shown prowess only in hacking Sony's internal network and bragging about it anonymously on Pastebin.

Terrorist threats are no laughing matter, of course, but the Department of Homeland Security has found no credible threat, and evidence that the Guardians of Peace have any sort of manpower that could do anything within the boundaries of the United States (much less at thousands of locations simultaneously) is practically non-existent. This sort of panicked cowardice would be absurd if it wasn't so damn sad.

We've reached out to the theaters to find out if Paramount is citing an additional, specific threat against theaters screening Team America: World Police in particular, or if the company is simply just assuming that theater-threatening boogeymen wouldn't be huge fans of this film either. We've also reached out to Paramount, because what the hell.

Meanwhile, evidence is mounting that perhaps North Korea itself is behind the Sony hacks and that the U.S. might officially point the finger later today. Although that doesn't lend much more credence to threats of terrorism, considering the North Korea is pretty well known for spouting empty nonsense and launching missiles that can barely make it off the launchpad. There's nothing more embarrassing then bowing to that.

    People gotta realize that you not dealing with north Korea you dealing with Kim jong un. Dude came out with his hackers on his dej loaf and said try me. Paramount did the responsible thing while 🤬 trying to be petty as possible about some 🤬 . A lot of people including the writer of this article just popping 🤬 from a safe place. 🤬 acting like these execs should be willing to die or let innocent people die for this 🤬 . Sony and paramount did the right thing tho. They got yoked up and had no real control over the situation if it were to escalate. Stand down.
    Not saying the threat of violence was credible but keep poking the bear...
