Billionaire Mark Cuban was one of many people whose emails were exposed during a massive cyber attack on Sony.
Sony produces ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank,” and Cuban is one of the judges.
A leaked email shows that Sony wanted to pay Cuban $US30,000 per episode to be on the show. Cuban was less than thrilled. He responded:
no chance… this is beyond an insult and it shows no one cares about the investments I have made or the entrepreneurs
now it’s really business..
I will negotiate like any other deal I would do
you may want to start cutting me out of the promos
Cuban tells CNN’s Brian Stelter that he wasn’t embarrassed that his email about the salary fight leaked.
“It’s nothing I wouldn’t have said publicly,” Cuban said. “If they want me to continue to do ‘good television’ and make investments that I like to do but that I otherwise would not have done or would not have been accessible to me, then it’s a decision they have to make. And if we don’t come to a resolution, I’ll leave the show.”
