Aaron Sorkin has some fighting words for Tim Cook. During an appearance on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert asked the Apple CEO what he thought about the fact that Danny Boyle was making a movie about his former boss Steve Jobs that wasn’t “that flattering.” “I think a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic and I hate this,” said Cook. “It’s not a great part of our world.” Well, the scriptwriter Aaron Sorkin isn’t about to let this go. “Nobody did this movie to get rich,” Sorkin told The Hollywood Reporter. “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.” Quick! Someone call Apple Care!
