Rob Lowe just blasted Sony, calling the movie company a spineless sellout and comparing it to the famous British Prime Minister who caved in to Hitler.
Lowe reacted to Sony's decision to pull "The Interview," saying, "Saw @Sethrogen at JFK. Both of us have never seen or heard of anything like this. Hollywood has done Neville Chamberlain proud today."
Chamberlain famously conceded Czechoslovakia to the Nazis in 1938. His policy of appeasement became synonymous with cowardice.
So far no word from Seth Rogen on whether he embraces Rob's statement.
And Newt Gingrich got into the act, tweeting "@RobLowe, No one should kid themselves. With the Sony collapse America has lost its first cyberwar. This is a very very dangerous precedent."
To which Rob retweeted "It wasn't the hackers who won, it was the terrorists and almost certainly the North Korean dictatorship, this was an act of war."
Michael Moore just fired his own salvo saying, "Dear Sony Hackers: now that u run Hollywood, I'd also like less romantic comedies, fewer Michael Bay movies and no more Transformers."
Wow. Everyone caved. The hackers won. An utter and complete victory for them. Wow.— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) December 17, 2014
