| by Charles Roberts

North Korea called President Barack Obama a monkey and charged the United States with participating in cyber warfare in a statement released Friday.

According to The Guardian, North Korea believes that the U.S. masterminded their nation’s internet ‘disruption’ this past week. That so-called disruption led to the country completely losing internet for the large part of a day.

"Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest," a spokesman at the commission's Policy Department said in a statement, according to the New York Post.

Two weeks ago, the FBI accused North Korea of hacking Sony Pictures over a controversial movie depicting the killing of Kim Jong-un. ‘The Interview’ outraged North Korean officials, and they threatened retribution. A month before the movie was set to be released, Sony Pictures was hacked and numerous embarrassing e-mails were leaked. The hackers then threatened a 9/11-style attack on movie theaters if the film were to be released. After an initial hiccup – ‘The Interview’ ultimately opened on Christmas Day.
