Sony: Denzel Washington Shouldn’t Be In Blockbusters Because He’s BlackBy toddDecember 18, 2014

Dude. You’re not gonna believe this, but another embarrassing Sony email got leaked.

In newly revealed hacked and leaked correspondence, an unnamed Sony producer is caught saying that the two-time Oscar winner (above, in “Flight”) shouldn’t star in films that the studio plans to market overseas, because the international market is too “racist.” “No, I am not saying ‘The Equalizer’ should not have been made or that African-American actors should not have been used (I personally think Denzel is the best actor of his generation),” the producer explained, referring to the star’s popular action thriller, released in September. But “casting him is saying we’re OK with a double if the picture works,” the producer warned, using a baseball analogy to describe the movie’s reception abroad in the email, which was revealed by Radar Online on Wednesday. “He’s reliable at the domestic [box office], safe, but has not had a huge success in years,” the producer wrote in the email, which was addressed to Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton — whose response is not divulged. “I believe that the international motion picture audience is racist — in general pictures with an African-American lead don’t play well overseas,” the producer wrote.

Flight cost $31M and made $161M, but I guess that isn’t enough profit for some people. I bet if it starred Mark Wahlberg (he also hates black people), it probably would have made $400M or something like that.

Let’s Revist Charli XCXBy toddDecember 18, 2014

My friend who texted me about her, texted me last night and said her hotness “grows on you”. Idk, I think the point of hotness is supposed to be instant, so maybe we just have to wait and see. I just….she looks like a fat Lorde. Like if Lorde went to college for a year then came back. Also, it looks like it might not have the most pleasant odor. Collards are the only thing that smell bad that I eat.
