Don’t read this, Jong-un

Sony Pictures Entertainment may have had legitimate reasons for deciding not to release Seth Rogen’s new comedy “The Interview.”

Threats lodged against the company if it had gone ahead with its planned Christmas Day release were too much of a reminder of what happened in Aurora in 2012 during the opening weekend of the then latest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

That’s when a gunman dressed in military-style tactical clothing and looking a bit like the villain in the movie, Bane, killed 12 people and wounded 70 others.

Whether the terrorist attack threats against anyone who sees “The Interview” from a group calling itself Guardians of Peace are credible or not, such threats must be taken seriously, particularly in this day and age.
