President Obama Calls James Franco ‘James Flacco’; Joe Flacco Notices

Barack Obama made one slip of the tongue and had the Internet bursting with jokes about Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

During his end-of-year press conference Friday, Obama addressed Sony’s recent decision to pull the movie “The Interview” from theaters following threats from North Korea.

“… I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco,” Obama said, via the New York Daily News.

The movie actually stars Rogan and actor James Franco, but the Twitterverse decided to have a little fun with it. [tweet align=’center’] [tweet align=’center’] [tweet align=’center’] [tweet align=’center’]

In the end, though, Flacco decided to just roll with it. [tweet align=’center’]
