Kevin Hart on Sony Email Exchange: "I Will Never Allow Myself to Be Taken Advantage Of"
The actor's response comes in the wake of a leaked email written by Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper calling the 'Ride Along' star a "whore"
Actor Kevin Hart struck back with a feisty response after becoming ensnarled in the Sony hack via a leaked email.
The Ride Along star wrote in an Instagram post Thursday that he would "brush ignorance off my shoulder" in response to revelations that Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper called Hart a "whore" for wanting additional compensation over his $3 million payday to tweet in support of one of his movies.
"I'm not saying he's a whore, but he's a whore," Culpepper wrote in an email to Sony heads Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton that was part of a trove of leaked documents and correspondence posted to the Internet by a group dubbed Guardians of Peace.
In response, Hart wrote: "Knowing your self worth is extremely important people...I worked very hard to get where I am today," I look at myself as a brand and because of that I will never allow myself to be taken advantage of. I OWN MY BRAND...I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR 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 it's now time for me to get back to building this empire that I've always dreamed of!!!"
