North Korea insulted President Barack Obama, calling him “a monkey” and blamed the U.S. on Saturday for shutting down its Internet amid the hacking controversy involving the comedy “The Interview.”

North Korea has long denied involvement in the catastrophic cyber attack on Sony Pictures, however has not hidden it’s anger  over the comedy spoof about the assassination of its leader Kim Jong Un.

Sony Pictures initially canceled the release because of terror attacks against U.S. movie theaters.

President Obama was critical of Sony’s decision, and the movie has since been released in certain theaters and online.

On Saturday,the communist nation’s National Defense Commission,  which is the top governing body led by Kim, accused Obama of being behind the release of “The Interview.” and described the movie as illegal, dishonest and reactionary.

“Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” an unidentified spokesman at the commission’s Policy Department said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

This isn’t the first cruel insult North Korea has used against Obama and other top U.S. and South Korean officials.

The communist regime called  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry a wolf with a “hideous” lantern jaw and South Korean President Park Geun-hye a prostitute. In May, the North’s news agency published a dispatch saying Obama has the “shape of a monkey.”

North Korea also accused the U.S. for the cyber-attack that caused the country’s internet to go dark for ten hours.

The online outages occurred after the U.S. had promised to respond to the Sony hack. The U.S. government has declined to say if it was behind the shutdown.

The White House refused to comment on Saturday.

According to the North Korean commission’s spokesman, “the U.S., a big country, started disturbing the Internet operation of major media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like children playing a tag.” DPRK refers to the North’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

North Korea and the U.S. have remained in a state of war since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

The countries have also remained in an international showdown over the North’s nuclear and missile programs and its alleged human rights abuses.

North Korea has continued to build its nuclear capabilities despite the fact the country has been plagued by widespread famine.
