Sony's Pascal: 'All I Did Was Get Fired'

When Amy Pascal's reign as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment ended earlier this month, rumor had it that she had been fired.

Well, Pascal may have confirmed that herself. According to Business Insider, at the Women in the World conference Wednesday, Pascal told moderator Tina Brown, "All the women here are doing incredible things in this world. All I did was get fired."

Sony's Amy Pascal: 'All I did was get fired'
Sony Pictures Chair Amy Pascal arrives for the premiere of the film 'The Interview' at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, California on December 11, 2014. The film, starring US actors Seth Rogen and James Franco, is a comedy about a CIA plot to assassinate its leader Kim Jong-Un, played by Randall Park. North Korea has vowed 'merciless retaliation' against what it calls a 'wanton act of terror' -- although it has denied involvement in a massive cyber attack on Sony Pictures, the studio behind the film.

At the conference, Pascal also spoke publicly for the first time about the massive hacks that thrust her emails into the spotlight -- email exchanges in which producer Scott Rudin called Angelina Jolie a "minimally talented spoiled brat," and ones in which the two made jokes about President Obama that were called racist and insensitive.

"I kept calling [IT] and being like, 'They don't have our emails, tell me they don't have our emails,'" she told Tina Brown. "But then they did. That was a bad moment. And you know what you write in emails."
Pascal did apologize for those emails, but earlier this month, we learned that she would no longer be Sony's co-chairman. Most suggested she'd been pushed out because of the public fallout over her emails.

We couldn't be sure, though, because Sony is reportedly funding a production company for Pascal. Pascal herself released a statement saying she was "energized" to begin a "new chapter" at Sony.

After all, she'd had success with films like "The Social Network" and "21 Jump Street" and was considered one of the industry's top executives before the hack coverage.

Pascal telling Brown "all I did was get fired" may be confirmation of what many suspected in the first place. Pascal did say she learned a lesson from the whole experience -- that you should always tell people to their faces how you feel about them.
