North Korea blamed the U.S. for its widespread Internet outages and compared President Barack Obama to a "monkey in a tropical forest" Friday.
According to the communist country's state-run news agency, Obama was the "chief culprit" in "The Interview" release and "always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest."

The messages come as North Korea formally accused the U.S. of being responsible for its recent Internet problems.
“The United States, with its large physical size and oblivious to the shame of playing hide and seek as children with runny noses would, has begun disrupting the Internet operations of the main media outlets of our republic,” the North’s National Defense Commission said in a statement, according to Reuters.
The U.S. accused the communist country of being behind the devastating Sony hack that resulted in "The Interview" being released online instead of major theaters.
