I understand why they cancelled it, but I am disappointed because it will encourage more threats of violence to stop content that someone dislikes. If we want to stand up to terrorist threats we have to be willing to risk the violence that might result. I don't think our country is ready to do that at this time. Even if we were willing to take the risk and accept some violence to keep our freedom the severity of the attacks could be escalated until we capitulate. There are no easy answers.
I hope that the people who threatened the violence are found and punished severely.
The situation reminds me somewhat of a porn movie I saw once with a scene where a woman asked to be spanked during a sex scene. The other performer responded that they couldn't do that because of the distributors. At the time (early 1990s) the distributors were reasonably afraid of being busted due to the recent history of prosecutions if a scene included explicit sex and any S&M content, even if was just a bit of consensual spanking. Distributors knew that even if they were not convicted they could have their business and personal lives ruined due to pre-trial asset seizures. That was an example of content being restricted by terrorism from our own government.

"But I can't. U.S. regulations stipulate a performer cannot engage in the portrayal of violent sexual intercourse, including, but not exhausting: spanking, choking, pulling hair, slapping..."
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
