Fox News commentator Juan Williams blasted Sony executives for liberal hypocrisy after a recent email hack revealed the Hollywood elite racially stereotyping President Obama.

“Hacked emails from Hollywood’s white, liberal elite show them belittling the president by assuming his taste in movies is confined to racial stereotypes fitting just another black guy,” Mr. Williams wrote in an editorial for Fox News on Friday.

He quoted the emails, where Amy Pascal, a Sony Pictures co-chair ask if she should as Mr. Obama “if he likes ‘DJANGO,’” to which Scott Rudin, a movie producer, responds: “Or ‘The Butler’… or ‘Ride-Along.’ I bet he likes Kevin Hart.”

“Where to begin unpacking that powder keg of race and class bigotry?” Mr. Williams wrote.

He went on to condemn Ms. Pascal for assuming the president, a 53-year-old, Harvard trained constitutional lawyer, shares the “working-class, juvenile delights of Hart’s racial slapstick.”

“What they have revealed is how demeaning and patronizing their liberal minds can be even when the man is the leader of the nation,” Mr. Williams wrote.

Mr. Williams is not immune to racial hypocrisy and has been accused of conservative racial bias. He was fired from NPR four years ago for admitting in a segment on “The O’Reilly Factor” that travelers boarding commercial flights in “Muslim garb” cause him to “get nervous.”
