MPAA’s Chris Dodd on Terrorist Attack in France: ‘Cowardly’ Attempt to Destroy Free Speech

MPAA chairman Chris Dodd weighed in on the attack on French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, calling it “cowardly” and alluding to the recent hack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.

“We are shocked and saddened by the horrific terrorist attack at Charlie Hebdo that occurred today,” he said in a statement. “Our industry has experienced firsthand cowardly attempts (to destroy) freedom of speech, and we offer our expression of support to the victims and their families, as well as the French people.”

Twelve people died in the shooting at the provocative magazine in Paris.

The masked gunmen, who shouted “Allahu akbar” and that they were avenging the Prophet Mohammed, are still on the loose.
