In the wake of the Sony e-mails hack we’ve learned that people at Sony are assholes just like everyone else (like we didn’t already know given… y’know, Sony), and say stuff in e-mail they don’t want or expect anyone else to read — just the recipient(s). One of them seemed quite convinced they should talk to Obama about popular black movies and Kevin Hart… because Obama is black and therefore that is his interest. Anyway, the bit I find amusing is this one statement by Dede Gardner:
It’s confusing because it’s obviously a private conversation that was exposed and made public to the world, and it’s hard, I think, for people who know those people
Note that she’s not absolving them — but that nobody had this concern around the Donald Sterling thing.
Just, y’know, saying.
