In an exchange between Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin, cheesy jokes about Obama were made,about none other than his…..wait for it……….race. Pascal asks Rudin what she should say to the president at a fundraiser, and Rudin says to ask if he’d like to finance any movies. That’s when things go left:
Pascal: “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?”
Rudin: “12 YEARS.”
Rudin: “Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart.”
Shocking, but not really shocking when you think about it. Welcome to Hollywood baby.
