• Are You Ready for Al Sharpton Versus Hollywood?

    I don’t know who’s behind the hack, but I know what I read on the hack, and I’m going to give [Amy Pascal] a lot of heck about the hack.” That’s the promise from the Reverend Al Sharpton, who is about to tackle the issue of racism at Sony Pictures.

    Sharpie will be meeting with Pascal, the current head honcho whom many believe may lose her job as a result of the racist e-mails that have been published in the wake of Sony’s hacking. Al says he’ll also meet with the NAACP and the Urban League before deciding “whether we are going to join calls for her resignation or whether she is really, seriously going to deal with the fact that Hollywood really reflects a lot of what was said in that conversation.”

    Not to defend Amy Pascal, but isn’t it comforting to know that Al Sharpton is always the one deciding who gets to keep their job? The fact that Don Imus lost his gig after such calls for punishment, yet Al himself is a tax cheat who still has multiple careers — including a somewhat prominent one on MSNBC — is rich.

    Right now, Hollywood is like the Rocky Mountains: The higher up it goes, the whiter it looks,” said Al of Tinseltown’s racism.

    Looks like he’ll be approaching this case with the same methodical degree of fairness he applies to most cases.
