Sony agrees to let Sharpton have a say in future movies

There goes the neighborhood!

Al Sharpton met with embattled Sony exec Amy Pascal for 90 minutes ​in an attempt to discuss solutions to stop the media bleeding from the ​cyber-hacking ​leak of embarrassing, racially charged emails.

Pascal allegedly has agreed to let Sharpton have a say in how Sony Pictures makes movies, in an effort to combat what Sharpton called “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.”

“We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton.

He said Sony would work closely with his National Action Network, ​the ​National Urban League, ​the ​NAACP and the Black Women’s Round Table to “see if we can come up with an immediate plan to deal with it.”

The perception that Sharpton’s power is growing is becoming a reality. He allegedly offered advice for choosing of the United States Attorney General. He meets with Barack Obama in the White House more than the Republicans. He coordinated a nationwide March on DC and other large cities to protest cop violence, and now he’s got control over what movies Sony Pictures creates.

I wonder if Sony is going to pay Sharpton’s $4M tax bill too?
