Comedian blasts Sony Pictures after execs called him "whore" in leaked emails

'I OWN MY BRAND…I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND….I PROTECT MY BRAND….which is why I’m able to brush ignorance off of my shoulder and continue to move forward." Kevin posted on Instagram

Kevin Hart was one of the victims who was mocked in recently leaked emails from Sony Pictures executives, and now the actor and comedian has taken to his social media to address the 'ignorant' comments made about him.

In an email exchange released on Wednesday, Sony executive Clint Culpepper called Kevin Hart a 'whore' after members of his team asked that he be compensated for promoting one of his upcoming film's on social media.

Culpepper was emailing Sony Pictures Chair Amy Pascal at the time, who responded to his diatribe with a brief note implying she was aware of the situation.

In his Instagram post, Hart mentioned he is one of the hardest working actors in the business whose four feature films in 2014 alone could prove it.

He wrote:

"Knowing your self worth is extremely important people,' he began his statement.

'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 taking advantage of.

'I OWN MY BRAND…I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND….I PROTECT 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 its now time for me to get back to building this empire that I’ve always dreamed of!!!!"

Hart's next film, The Wedding Ringer, is a Sony pictures and drops 2015!
