Kevin Hart Reacts To Sony Executives Calling Him A “Whore”

By  | 

Kevin Hart took to Instagram on Thursday to respond to being called a “whore” by Sony executives.

“Knowing your self worth is extremely important people … I worked very hard to get to 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. I OWN MY BRAND …I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND… I PROTECT 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 its now time for me to get back to building this empire that I’ve always dreamed of!!!!”

Hart captioned the photo message:

“#KnowYourselfWorth #HustleHart #MogulMindset.”

Earlier this week, an email exchange between Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal and studio executive Clint Culpepper was leaked, revealing the executives thoughts on Kevin wanting money to promote one of his films on social media.

Culpepper also wrote:

“It’s not as if we paid him 3M and 4M respectively for his last 2 films thinking he might be nominated. We paid for his ability to open a film which included his social media savvy. I feel like this is something that should be negotiated going into the film as opposed to after the fact. It feels tantamount to buying a car and then upon picking it up being told that the engine will cost extra. 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 fucking himself because we have his next 2 immediate films. And then there’s the social media precedent we’re setting…especially in light of the fact that Channing is at the same agency.”
