Kevin Hart Responds To ‘Whore’ Name Calling In Sony Email Hack

Comedian Kevin Hart has decided to give a very candid statement about the Sony email conversations where his name came up several times. His name was tossed around by Sony Pictures executives, and at one point Sony Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper called him a whore.

If you thought Kevin Hart was keeping his cool on this one, don’t hold your breath, because he’s mad. We’re talking Kanye West caps-lock mad. The comedian and film star took to Instagram to express his stance on the name calling. Even though Hart didn’t specifically say this was about the Sony hack, it really didn’t need to be said.

Hart posted a notebook page as a photo to defend himself.

“Knowing your self worth is extremely important people… I worked very hard to get where I am today. I look at myself as a brand and because of that I will never allow myself to be taking advantage of. [sic]”

He continued, “I OWN MY BRAND… I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND… which is why I’m able to brush ignorance off of my shoulder and continue to move forward. I refuse to be broken people… with that being said it’s now time for me to get back to building this empire that I’ve always dreamed of!!!”

His fans immediately responded to back him up on his message. One commentator wrote, “What people say behind your back matters not!! @kevinhart4real now you really know what you’re dealing with!”

In the e-mail, Culpepper went on to accuse Kevin Hart of being money hungry. He even said that Hart wanted to be paid to promote his own film, Think Like a Man Too.

“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 f***ing himself because we have his next 2 immediate films.”

At one point he wrote, “I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore.”

As the Inquisitr reported, the e-mails revealed what Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin really think of Angelina Jolie, David Fincher, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s talent. Unlike those set of e-mails, this was obviously not connected to the Fincher Jobs movie that Sony ultimately lost out on.
