Some call it a threat to freedom of expression, others a victory for terrorists. Either way, Sony's decision to pull "The Interview" - its $42 million, highly-scrutinized film that puts North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in a bad light - from theaters before its Dec. 25 release has led actors and moviegoers alike to express their outrage.

Thursday's New York premier was scrapped, and stars Seth Rogen and James Franco have canceled remaining scheduled promotional appearances this week.

The decision comes as a group calling themselves 'Guardians of the Peace' crippled Sony Pictures Entertainment computers, leaking confidential documents, and threatened to unleash violence reminiscent of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Leaked emails revealed everything from botched films to celebrities being called "whores" and "spoiled brats."

In speaking with ABC, President Barack Obama urged that "people go to the movies," stresses that potential for attacks were "very serious." Obama's statement came as anonymous officials said the FBI had linked North Korea to the attacks. Retaliating won't be easy, given tense relations between the United States and the vilified country.

That didn't stop many from calling out the company for its cowardice. Here are Twitter's top 10 reactions to "The Interview" becoming a threat to national security.
