Chris Rock says everyone in Hollywood is scared that their private emails might be leaked.
The Top Five actor claims “nobody knows what to do” after controversial email exchanges between Sony executives and stars, including Angelina Jolie, were made public by hackers in North Korea and admits he often says “inappropriate things.”
The 49-year-old comedian said: “Read my emails. I say offensive things for a living.”
He also revealed several of his famous peers have expressed concern about the emails, some of which were racist and sexist.
He told the New York Times: “This whole thing is just scary, man. It’s emails, it’s your private stuff, and the whole town is scared. Everybody’s got to be scared… nobody knows what to do.”
Sony Pictures Entertainment recent announced that it was canceling the scheduled release of Seth Rogen and James Franco‘s new movie, The Interview, which is about an assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, after terror attack threats were made by the same group responsible for the Sony hacks.
But many celebrities, including Ben Stiller, Rob Lowe, Jimmy Kimmell and Judd Apatow, blasted the decision.
‘Night At The Museum’ star Ben wrote on Twitter: ”Really hard to believe this is the response to a threat to freedom of expression here in America. #TheInterview”
