Sony Pictures decided to pull its upcoming comedy “The Interview” from distribution Wednesday amid security concerns and news that the five largest movie theater chains in the U.S. had decided to hold off on screening the film. Following Sony’s decision Wednesday, it was revealed that U.S. officials believe North Korea was behind the massive Nov. 24 hacking attack on Sony Entertainment, according to NBC News’ Pete Williams.
The White House has not announced what the United States’ response to the cyber security threat will be.

Celebrities, politicians, and journalists alike took to Twitter to express their opinions on the matter. Have you kept up?
