Aaron Sorkin Apologizes to Apple’s Tim Cook: Both Sides ‘Went Too Far’

While, the announcement which came from the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), further asserted that Narendra Modi’s digital India program strongly impressed Tim Cook and therefore soon after hearing the idea he showed his interest to be a part of the initiative. The film was written by Sorkin and, when asked about Cook’s comments, the writer didn’t hold back.

However, his rebuttal forwarded after the incident, clearly states that he hoped Mr. Cook would appreciate his film just the way he “enjoys” Apple products.

Cook slammed the filmmakers behind the upcoming movie about the late Apple co-founder, branding Hollywood executives “opportunistic” for portraying Jobs in a supposedly unflattering manner. “Tim Cook should really see the movie before he decides what it is”.

Then, the screenwriter retreated – on his own behalf, and Cook’s. You’re Aaron Sorkin, after all. And the portrait he painted of Zuckerberg – as, more or less, an anti-social loser – was none too flattering. I loved the way you mocked Zuckerberg.

The usual form of apology is something along the lines of: “I’m sorry”. Perhaps to re-shape the narrative, Zuckerberg famously donated $100 million to Newark, N.J, schools as the movie hit theaters. “I get it completely”.

When speaking to The Hollywood Reporter during a press junket in London this week, Aaron Sorkin said those working on the project took pay cuts to make the film.

Aside from “Steve Jobs” and “X-Men: Apocalypse”, Fassbender is now filming “Assassin’s Creed” and is set to star in “Tresspass Against Us”, “The Snowman”, “The Light Bewtween Oceans” and “Alien: Paradise Lost”. “Made him look like a complete idiot”.
