  • Aaron Sorkin Blasts Apple CEO Tim Cook


    Famed Hollywood Scribe Aaron Sorkin is taking aim at and blasting Apple CEO Tim Cook over remarks the executive made about Hollywood films negatively portraying Steve Jobs -- his late boss -- on the silver screen.

    Most recently, Cook guested on The Late Show with Steven Colbert. During the segment, Cook stated he hadn't seen many of the films and documentaries about Jobs, suggesting he wasn't a fan.

    "I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic and I hate this, it's not a great part of our world," Cook said, not referring to Sorkin by name, but also not omitting him from that generalization.

    Sorkin, of course, is the writer of "Steve Jobs," a film premiering next month.

    In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sorkin blasted claims of being an opportunist.

    "Nobody did this movie to get rich," Sorkin told the HR. "Secondly, Tim Cook should really see the movie before he decides what it is. Third, if you've got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour you've got a lot of nerve calling someone else opportunistic."

    Ouch.

      The only thing more amusing than watching angry people argue on anonymous forums is watching wealthy, powerful people arguing the exact same way.

      I get sick of hearing this. Apple does not own those factories, Apple does not hire the people that work there. Apple is not the only company that uses those factories. Why don't people say this about all the other tech companies that use the same factories. Just about any store bought pc is built at foxconn, yet nobody says anything about HP, Dell, or any of the other companies.

      Tim Cook is not trying very hard, shouldn't be too difficult to release his jackals (lawyers) on these movies.
