Now that Sony has decided to pull ‘The Interview’ from being released due to terrifying threats of terror, movie fans have taken to Twitter to express their anger and concerns about censorship.

James Franco, 36, and Seth Rogen, 32, have little to celebrate this holiday season now that Sony has sacked their latest film, The Interview. HollywoodLife.com has collected a series of tweets in which fans and celebrities alike are reacting to the news, and while some of them are cracking jokes, others are pretty upset they won’t get to see the buddy comedy.

‘The Interview’ Pulled By Sony: Fans React To Cancellation

Well, I can’t say I’m surprised.

Less than 24 hours after a cyber terrorist group threatened movie-goers with a “9/11” style attack, Sony has decided to pull the plug on The Interview.

“We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public,” Sony said in a statement, via Variety.

This is the latest cancellation following a series of theaters deciding not to show the film, as well as stars James and Seth canceling upcoming press appearances for the film.

Now, fans of the actors, film, and movies in general are tweeting their opinions about the cancellation. Even celebrities like New Girl star Jake Johnson are jumping in, and there are quite a few people who are concerned.
