Oscar-winning producer Scott Rudin apologized Thursday for calling Angelina Jolie a "spoiled brat" and making racially offensive jokes about President Obama's presumed taste in movies.The comments were made in a series of leaked email exchanges between Rudin and Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal, who also apologized Thursday. In another, as reported by Buzzfeed, Rudin and Pascal also riffed about what she should talk to President Obama about at an upcoming fundraiser."Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?" Pascal asked, referring to Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained". They continued the email chain joking about which films the President might enjoy, referencing "Lee Daniels' The Butler," "Think Like a Man" and "Ride Along" -- all films with primarily African American casts.Rev. Al Sharpton said in a statement that the apologies were not enough, comparing Pascal to disgraced NBA owner Donald Sterling and demanding that she meet with black leaders immediately.
