North Korea threw blame on the United States for its recent power outages, calling president Barack Obama a monkey.
North Korea had suffered days of internet outage after they were allegedly said to be behind hacks on Sony over film, The Interview.
“Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” an unnamed spokesman for the National Defense Commission said.
Sony canceled the release of the film when large cinema chains refused to screen it following threats of violence from hackers, but then put it out on limited release after Obama said Sony was caving in to North Korean pressure.
Obama promised retaliation against North Korea, but did not specify what form it would take.
