It was just a matter of time before President Barack Obama would have to comment on the Sony-gate, and let's just say he didn't go soft on the company.

"Sony is a corporation, it suffered significant damage, there were threats agaisnt some employees.I am sympathetic to the concerns they faced"

"Having said all that, I think they made a mistake. In this interconnected digital world, there are going to be opportunities for hackers to engage in cyber assaults both in the private and public sectors (...) I wish they had spoken to me first," Obama said of Sony

"I would have told them do not get into a pattern where your intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks.He discouraged other company's facing similar threats from caving to that pressure. Let's not get into that way of doing business"

Quick reminder, after recieving 9/11-like threats from hackers, Sony decided to pull the Interview from theaters, basically cancelling it's worldwide release, and lets just say the decision earned them major backlash in Hollywood and the USA.

What do you think? Did Sony make the right decision by cancelling the worldwide release of "The Interview"?
