  • Written by 

Comedian Tina Fey was asked to respond to the Charlie Hebdo attack at a press event in California and stated, "Obviously, that news is terrible and tragic and upsetting."

The shooting at the French newspaper in Paris resulted in the death of twelve and left many wounded. The Greek-American author commented, "You look at that and you look at the controversy surrounding The Interview, it makes you think about how important free speech is and how it absolutely must be defended."

Fey added while at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, "[We] cannot back down on free speech in any way. We all have to stand firm on the issue of free speech." The entertainer discussed the vital importance of defending free speech, "We're Americans,and even if it's dumb jokes in The Interview, we have the right to make them."
