George Clooney created a petition in support of Sony, but he couldn’t get anyone to sign it

“In essence, the letter was “basically saying … ‘We’re not going to give in to a ransom,’ ” Clooney told Deadline. “As we watched one group be completely vilified, nobody stood up. Nobody took that stand.”

As far as his petition, Clooney couldn’t land a single signature.

The leaked Sony emails have illustrated what we all knew, Hollywood is populated by truly awful people, horrible liberal hypocrites deserving of their own special circle of hell.

But this episode I find puzzling, as Hollywood loves to trumpet how “brave and courageous” they are what with being the self-proclaimed guardians of civilization and all.

Are the Sony execs that hated by their peers that no one would sign on? Were potential petition signers worried that a public declaration of support would put them in the hacker’s cross-hairs?

Did George accidentally cc Kim Jong Un on the email? I just don’t know.
