AMY PASCAL, Woman in Receipt of ANGELINA JOLIE’s ‘Death Stare’ Steps Down As SONY CHAIR
If you don’t know the back story about Amy Pascal it goes like this.
Outside of the professional dealings at Sony, during her downtime, on company time and whenever, Pascal and a few other Sony execs engaged in two-faced kinds of activity where [obviously they treated the celebrities on their rosters with the utmost respect] but behind the networkings of the computer, engaged in email conversations where it was found (after a hacking scandal), Pascal said some not-so-nice things about Jolie and others.

Nefarious forces—whether there were links to North Korea or not has yet to be determined—objected to the film’s depiction of the assassination of the country’s leader Kim Jong Un, and a full-blown hack on Sony’s computer systems followed. Pascal’s acquiescence to Rogen and producing partner Evan Goldberg’s demand that the subject of the assassination be the actual sitting ruler of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, may have been linked, then, to the release of thousands of Sony employees’ personal information including Social Security numbers and salaries plus a slew of confidential emails between studio executives—some of which were particularly damning to Pascal and her reputation.
Now the executive, who has been with the studio since 1988, will (cont’d)
