Sony Executives Apologize to Employees at Town Hall Meetings

Sony executives faced employees on Monday in two town hall meetings to discuss the company’s hacking crisis.

The companywide meetings, held at 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. on a soundstage on Sony’s Culver City, Calif., lot, were initially meant to be held on Friday, but were postponed. Meanwhile, hackers known as the Guardians of Peace, revealed a new threat: A “Christmas gift” of damaging data was coming that would put Sony Pictures into “the worst state.”

At the meetings on Monday, Sony CEO Michael Lynton apologized to employees for the “criminal attack” they were enduring, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I am incredibly sorry that you had to go through this,” he said.

Co-Chairman Amy Pascal spoke as well, and her remarks drew applause from employees, says THR.

Lynton also expressed anger at the ongoing crisis. “This will not take us down,” he told employees, according to Variety. “You should not be worried about the future of this studio.”
