Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal and film producer Scott Rudin have issued apologies regarding their email exchanges that contained racially-tinged remarks about Pres. Obama's imagined taste in movies, the NY Times reports.

The emails between Pascal and Rudin were revealed after hackers posted them online following a recent attack on Sony's computer networks.

"The content of my emails to Scott were insensitive and inappropriate but are not an accurate reflection of who I am. Although this was a private communication that was stolen, I accept full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended," said Amy Pascal in a statement.
