Things seem to only be getting worse for Sony Pictures. Especially, the executives.
In more leaked emails from the “Sony Hackers,” there have been revealings of passwords, aliases for celebrities, pay salaries for Sony employees, and insults towards actors like Angelina Jolie, Adam Driver, and Michael Fassbender – even a leaked email from George Clooney “predicting” the hacking has surfaced.
But the biggest news of the leaked emails yet has to do with racism.
In the most recent of leaked emails, Sony execs joked that President Obama probably only likes movies that star black actors. Then they made a crack about the president liking comedian Kevin Hart:
“Rudin, a top film producer responsible for movies such as No Country for Old Men and Moneyball, responded, ‘Would he like to finance some movies.’ Pascal replied, ‘I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?’ Rudin responded: ’12 YEARS.’”
“Pascal quickly continued down the path of guessing Obama preferred movies by or starring African Americans. ‘Or the butler. Or think like a man? [sic]'”
Rudin’s response: “Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart.”
Kevin Hart, who’s films have been put out by Sony Pictures, fired back on Instagram.
If there is one thing that we have all learned from these hacked emails, it’s not more information about the people in front of the camera, it’s about some of the pricks funding the films.
Kevin Hart had a lot to say after racist jokes were made in Sony execs’ leaked emails. Find out more!
