'The Interview'

A wave of Hollywood industry reaction greeted the studio's announcement

After Sony canceled the release of the North Korea themed assassination comedy The Interview when major theater circuits decided against showing the film, a wave of Hollywood industry reaction greeted the announcement, with many stars taking to social media to voice their opinions on the move.

Sony, in canceling the film's Dec. 25 release, stated that the studio "has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like."

Here's a sampling of what the stars are saying about Sony's decision.
