The hacker group has decided that since Sony is bowing to the will of hackers to pull the film, it will release it, itself.
Of course Sony is not happy about this, which Anonymous will be pleased about, but the question is why would one hacker collective rain on another’s parade.
Part of this appears to be because Anonymous does not think that “Guardians of Peace” who managed the Sony raid are true hackers. They believe that the hacker group is a tool of the North Korean government.
Hackivism is one thing, but when you are hacking on behalf of a government you have broken the rules. But according to the tweets, Anonymous is cross that Sony caved in so easily to the GoP demands and banned the film.
“Okay, for real though. @SonyPictures is a little bitch for giving in so easily. Then again, what do you expect from Sony other than that?”
“You’re gonna let Kim Junk Uno and his minions boss you, a multimillion dollar corporation responsible for billions of dollars in revenue?”
Anonymous claims that it infiltrated Sony’s systems long before North Korea and it was going to release the film “as a Christmas present.”
“We’re not with either side, we just want to watch the movie too…and soon you too will be joining us,” the group tweeted.
