Aaron (‘Steve Jobs’) Sorkin takes a swipe at Apple’s Tim Cook.

Apparently it’s not very difficult to get under Aaron Sorkin’s skin. Tim Cook probably should have screened this season’s two Steve Jobs movies—Alex Gibney’s little documentary and Aaron Sorkin’s big-budget work of fiction— before he dismissed them out of hand on national television. “I haven’t seen them, but the Steve I knew was an amazing human being,” Cook told Stephen Colbert last week. “I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic, and I hate this; it’s not a great part of our world.” “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.” Cook may have painted with too broad a brush, but Sorkin’s response sounds like something one his characters would say.Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin blasted Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook for his characterization of filmmakers as “opportunistic” in making films about the company’s late co-founder, Steve Jobs.When Apple CEO Tim Cook appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this month, he briefly criticized anyone who would aim to capitalize on the legacy of his former boss, Steve Jobs. Sorkin said that Cook has “a lot of nerve” calling his film “opportunistic,” which seems to imply that the filmmakers are capitalizing on Steve Jobs’ death.

Now, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the upcoming biopic about Jobs, has fired back as only he can. “He was a joy to work with and I love him dearly. The company’s most recent report on supplier responsibility, published earlier this year, uncovered 16 instances of underage workers at its six facilities.
