Sony CEO Kaz Hirai started off his CES keynote by addressing the elephant in the room: how Sony is holding up after the giant hack that brought the company to its knees. “We were the victim of one of the most vicious and malicious cyberattacks in history,” he said, but was classy enough not to dwell on that point. He had a different message to share.
He praised the employees who worked “tirelessly, 24 hours a day, to bring The Interview to audiences in the United States.”
“I have to say that freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of association, are very important lifelines of Sony and our entertainment businesses.”
Freedom. F**k yeah.
