God bless the North Korean hackers for giving us a treasure trove of emails revealing what Hollywood really thinks of President Obama:
Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal and major movie producer Scott Rudin mocked President Obama’s race in the latest email exchange leaked by hackers.
“What should I ask the president at this stupid Jeffrey breakfast?” Ms. Pascal asked Mr. Rudin, referring to a breakfast hosted by DreamWorks Animation head and major Democratic donor Jeffrey Katzenberg, Buzzfeed reported.
Mr. Rudin, known for producing blockbuster hits like “Moneyball” and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” responded, “Would he like to finance some movies[?]”
“I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?” Ms. Pascal, a major Democratic donor, asked.
“12 YEARS,” Mr. Rudin responded, referring to the 2013 Academy Award-winner “12 Years a Slave.”
“Or the butler. Or think like a man? [sic]” Ms. Pascal replied, assuming the president’s favorite movies are ones starring black actors.
“Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart,” Mr. Rudin joked.
Hollywood seems to have more respect for America’s other first black president, who happened to be white.
