Sony Pictures Entertainment chief Amy Pascal joked with Oscar-winning producer Scott Rudin about President Obama’s race, according to leaked emails.

Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, emailed Rudin, who produced movies such as The Social Network and No Country for Old Men, to ask what she should say to Obama at a fundraising breakfast, Buzzfeed reports. “Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?”

“12 YEARS” Rudin replied.

Pascal went on to suggest other prominent films starring African Americans: “Or the butler. Or think like a man? [sic]”

“Ride-along,” wrote Rudin. “I bet he likes Kevin Hart.”

The emails were the latest in a series of leaks following a high-profile hacking attack by a group calling itself Guardians of Peace.

The leaks have revealed myriad squabbles Pascal has had with various Hollywood bigwigs, as well as precious nuggets regarding a slew of Hollywood stars, including Jonah Hill, George Clooney and Angelina Jolie.
