A trove of internal Sony emails leaked online in the wake of a cyberattack on the studio has got Hollywood buzzing on social media.
In the last few days, hackers have unleashed confidential messages between Sony Pictures co-Chairman Amy Pascal, other Sony executives and big Hollywood figures. Several exchanged messages contain fiery remarks -- some insensitive or racially charged -- about Hollywood filmmakers, actors and even President Obama.
Kevin Hart was called a "whore" by Screen Gems Inc. President Clint Culpepper; Angelina Jolie was referred to as "a minimally talented spoiled brat" by Scott Rudin; Adam Driver was called a "terrible idea" for "Star Wars" by Aaron Sorkin. Some have expressed their outrage over the comments.

Others, like director Judd Apatow, have taken to Twitter to rant about the media's decision to publish personal emails.
Releasing private Sony e mails to hurt people is the same as releasing nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence. Why are they ok to print?— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) December 11, 2014
