Sony Pictures Exec email was leaked and expose with racists jokes
BHR HollyWood Reports...........More leaked Sony emails are being unearthed from the pile of data hackers dumped online, and one thread shows executives making racist jokes about movies President Barack Obama might like, BuzzFeed reports.

Sony chairwoman Amy Pascal 
Before Sony Pictures co-chairwoman Amy Pascal attended a breakfast organized by DreamWorks Animation head and Democratic donor Jeffrey Katzenberg, she sent an email to movie producer Scott Rudin and wondered what she should ask Obama at the event.

Pascal: “What should I ask the president at this stupid Jeffrey breakfast?”
Rudin: “Would he like to finance some movies.”
Pascal: “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?”
Rudin: “12 YEARS.” [(12 Years a Slave depicted the abuse suffered by a free black man forced into slavery].
Pascal: “Or the butler. Or think like a man? [sic]”
Rudin: “Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart.” 
referring to other movies featuring black men.

Rudin then speculated that Obama liked Kevin Hart, the black comedian.

CEO Michael Lynton
Interestingly enough, Pascal was a donor for Obama’s re-election campaign. As expected, Pascal immediately issued an apology. “Private emails between friends and colleagues written in haste and without much thought or sensitivity, even when the content of them is meant to be in jest, can result in offense where none was intended,” said Pascal.

In another email exchange between Pascal, studio exec Clint Culpepper, and Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, Kevin Hart comes under fire after he allegedly refused to promote their film on Twitter.

Exec Scott Rudin
“It’s not as if we paid him 3M and 4M respectively for his last 2 films thinking he might be nominated. We paid for his ability to open a film which included his social media savvy. I feel like this is something that should be negotiated going into the film as opposed to after the fact. It feels tantamount to buying a car and then upon picking it up being told that the engine will cost extra. I’m tempted to suggest we call his bluff. If he doesn’t do his normal routine, his film will not open as well and his brand will appear diminished and he will- in fact – be f******g himself because we have his next 2 immediate films. And then there’s the social media precedent we’re setting…especially in light of the fact that Channing [Tatum] is at the same agency…..”I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore.”

Although Lynton and Culpepper have yet to release an official statement, Hart has made it very clear that he received their message and won’t be derailed by the blatant disrespect via Instagram.
