You can now send e-mails just like Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal.

The New York Post has created an online phrase generator that spurts out language similar to that used by Pascal in leaked emails. “The Pascalizer” adds racially insensitive remarks and unprofessional language into any message a user composes.

Generated phrases include:

“SHOULD I ASK HIM IF HE LIKED DJANGO?” — a comment from a leaked conversation between Pascal and producer Scott Rudin when guessing President Barack Obama’s favorite films, all of which starred African Americans.

“YOU ARE A TREASURE ANGIE/I LOVE U TONS,” which refers to conversations between Pascal and Sony execs and producers that include derisive remarks about top talent such as Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Hart and Adam Sandler.

“WE CAN’T EVEN SCHEDULE ONE DUCKING MEETING”

“SHE WAS AMAZING WITH A PERM IN THAT JEWISH MOVIE ABOUT DANIEL PEARL”

“I’M SAD CALL ME”

Since the leak, Pascal and Rudin have apologized for their comments.

“The content of my emails were insensitive and inappropriate but are not an accurate reflection of who I am,” Pascal said in a statement on December 11. “Although this was a private communication that was stolen, I accept full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended.”
