Hollywood stars have taken to Twitter to criticise Sony's decision to pull all releases of controversial comedy The Interview.

Rob Lowe compared the move to former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain caving in to Hitler, while comedy actor Ben Stiller brand it "a threat to freedom of expression".

The comedy, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, was due to be released in America on Christmas Day and in February in the UK.

It was canned after hackers posted online threats of 9/11 style attacks on cinemas that showed the film.

But some of America's biggest stars have accused Sony Pictures of giving to bullying tactics.
