(NEWSER) – George Clooney is pissed about the Sony hack by North Korea and the subsequent pull of The Interview. Speaking with Deadline, he not only says Hollywood is filled with scaredy-cats, he slams the media for having "abdicated its real duty." Clooney says he drafted a petition in support of "Sony's decision not to submit to these hackers' demands" and circulated it to "basically the heads of every place" a week ago.
"Nobody stood up," he says. While he says people "know what they themselves have written in their emails, and they're afraid," he adds, "Sony didn't pull the movie because they were scared; they pulled the movie because all the theaters said they were not going to run it."
