The real crime in the Sony “hack” story is the hack itself, but some of the stuff revealed as a result is telling considering it’s coming from Hollywood bigwigs — the same crowd that preaches liberal “values” including racial sensitivity.
Sony Pictures Entertainment executives joked about US President Barack Obama’s race in a series of emails leaked following the recent hack on Sony, according to reports.
Amy Pascal, co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment, reportedly asked top producer Scott Rudin what she should ask Mr Obama at a November 2013 fundraising breakfast.
Mr Rudin wrote: “Would he like to finance some movies.” Ms Pascal replied: “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked Django?” Mr Rudin responded: “12 Years,” and the pair named other films starring black actors, according to a report on BuzzFeed.
The outrage brigade probably won’t be demanding any resignations for an obvious reason:
Pascal is a major Democratic donor; she gave $5,000 to Obama’s re-election campaign and cut a $30,800 check to the Democratic National Committee, according to OpenSecrets.
The Dems will be so pissed off at Pascal’s emails that they’ll refuse to take her money and issue a refund immediately (pause for laughter).
