Sup Travellers?! According to the BBC, America could potentially find itself in some trouble with North Korea if Seth Rogen releases his newest film, "The Interview".

Kim Jong-un is apparently not happy with the film and called Seth Rogen a “gangster filmmaker”. He also threatened the US with “merciless” punishment over it. However, as always, no one is taking the fierce leader too seriously.

The movie stars Rogen and James Franco as two journalists who score an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and are subsequently ordered by the CIA to assassinate him.

After seeing the movie trailer, the North Korean government issued a statement which was published by the state run KCNA news agency.

“The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership… is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable,” a foreign ministry spokesman said, adding that the US would face a “resolute and merciless response” if the US fails to ban the film, which is slated for release sometime later this year.

Kim Myong-chol, an unofficial spokesperson for the North Korean government, was also critical of the film in last week’s interview with The Telegraph, where he called America “desperate,” saying, There is a special irony in this story line as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society.

He continued, “A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the US has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,” he added. “And let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans. In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the US military wants to kill him as well.”

Do you want to know how Seth Rogen responded? The only way a Seth Rogen would. 

"Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!!"

You mad bro? Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
