Amy Pascal Quits Sony, Angelina Jolie Puts Voo Doo Doll Away

Angelina JolieWhat comes around goes around, right? Amy Pascal, the soon-to-be-former Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures is now "minimally" employed after months of rancor and embarrassment in the wake of the Sony Pictures Media leak. And of course it has nothing to do with the questionable emails about Angelina Joile that went public.

Because of course it didn't.

Unfortunately for Pascal, the emails leaked from Sony revealed her disdain for Ms. Jolie, calling her a "minimally talented spoiled brat."

While Pascal's criticism of Angie doesn't seem to be the ultimate reason she stepped down ... it certainly didn't help her to stay at the top of the Sony Picture empire.

Pascal actually did pretty well as the Sony boss, rebooting the James Bond and Spiderman movies, but ultimately, she'll be remembered for the juicier tidbits of private emails made public by the biggest corporate hack in U.S. history. 

Sony employees woke after Thanksgiving weekend to discover that their private emails, salaries, and even family medical records were scattered across the Internet. Ms. Pascal and her fellow executives seemed to botch the whole thing by downplaying the hack and giving into supposed North Korean "terrorist" demands to pull the raunchy Seth Rogen comedy The Interview.

It's hard to say whether or not the email hack cost Pascal her job ... but after the way she criticized Angelina Jolie, it's not hard to imagine that the leaks had something to do with it.

Should Amy Pascal have resigned sooner?
