The Sony hack has seemingly destroyed the reputation of some higher ups at the movie entertainment company! In a new round of hacked emails between producer Scott Rudin and  Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Amy Pascal, the two wrote back and forth to each other on whether President Obama would like several of their black-themed films.

In one email Pascal emails Rudin about an Obama fundraiser she will be attending and asks what she should ask the President. Rudin replies, “would he like to finance some movies, ”  she replies, “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?”

Rudin writes back, “12 YEARS.” Pascal says, “Or The Butler. Or Think Like A Man?” Rudin adds, “Ride-Along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart.”

“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,” he told Deadline. “I made a series of remarks that were meant only to be funny, but in the cold light of day, they are in fact thoughtless and insensitive — and not funny at all. To anybody I’ve offended, I’m profoundly and deeply sorry, and I regret and apologize for any injury they might have caused.”

Pascal also released a statement, “The content of my emails to Scott were insensitive and inappropriate but are not an accurate reflection of who I am. Although this was a private communication that was stolen, I accept full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended.”

The hack also released leaked movies like Annie, Sony employee salaries and social security numbers, Angelina Jolie was called a brat, Kevin Hart a greedy whore and Michael Fassbender’s penis even gets a mention.
