Sony Execs Call Kevin Hart a Money ‘Whore’ in Leaked Email
Sony’s reputation is quickly tanking as their hack nightmare continues.
After emails from the Sony execs leaked that bash Angelina Jolie as a “minimally talented, spoiled brat” and claim President Obama loves slave films, Kevin Hart gets thrown in the mix as a money whore.
According to the email thread, the comedian tried to get extra money from Sony Pictures to promote his movie Think Like a Man Too on his social media. Disgusted by his request, Sony exec, Clint Culpeper said, “I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore” in the leaked email. He continued:
“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 fucking 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 is at the same agency.”
Oh man! So far there hasn’t been any word or any jokes from Kevin Hart nor the execs on this matter.
