The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart tries to figure out why Sony stood up to the release of “catty emails” and plowed ahead with plans to release The Interview on Christmas day, but capitulated when North Korean hackers threatened and “9/11 style attacks”  against movie theaters.

“First of all, when did 9/11 become a ‘style of attack’?” Stewart asked.

North Korea — that’s why they do! They threaten people with hyperbolic language!” Stewart ranted, wondering if leader Kim Jong Un now gets to decide what movies are released in this country.

“Kim Jong Un, I don’t even know why you’re so mad at Hollywood,” he said, noting it’s just like North Korea: “Everyone is always telling you how great you are, there are billboards with your face on them everywhere and no one eats.”
