Leaked Sony Emals Show Racially Insensitive Comments About Obama

Leaked Sony Emails Reveal Jokes About Obama and Race

In the latest of embarrassing emails to leak online from Sony this week, studio co-chairman Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin riff on what President Barack Obama’s favorite movies could be, focusing mostly on films starring and by African Americans.

According to Buzzfeed, Pascal asked Rudin for advice before going to an Obama fundraiser hosted by DreamWorks Animation head Jeffrey Katzenberg, particularly what she should ask the President “at this stupid Jeffrey breakfast.”

“Would he like to finance some movies,” responded Rudin. “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?” said Pascal, with Rudin replying “12 YEARS.” “Or the butler. Or think like a man?” continued Pascal, who is a major donor for the Democratic party and President Obama. “Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart,” said Rudin.
