Amy Pascal to step down from Sony's top post

Los Angeles - Amy Pascal is stepping down as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment following the hacking crisis at the studio that saw the leak of several private emails.

Pascal's exit from the post was widely expected in the aftermath of the scandal that saw the studio facing a disabling cyberattack which was done to protest the release of 'The Interview', which mocks North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

She was the obvious target of the hackers, who leaked several embarrassing conversations between Pascal and producer Scott Rudin where they discussed President Barack Obama's assumed interest in movies starring black actors and made some unflattering comments about Angelina Jolie.
