Boss Blunders: Yahoo! CEO Tells Blogger to “F*ck Off”
The TechCruch Disrupt conference as held in NYC this week, and just finished yesterday. During the conference, a TechCrunch blogger, Mike Arrington, had a chance to sit down with Yahoo! CEO, Carol Bartz.
Apparently Arrington has criticized Bartz in the past and it was now Bartz’s opportunity for a response. Rather than provide her plan of attack in saving Yahoo!, she went with a more direct approach:
You are involved in a very tiny company.
It probably takes a long time to even convince yourself what the hell to do.
So fuck off!
As a CEO, why the need to be so aggressive? Sure, he got under your skin, but a public shaming by a over-wealthy executive never goes as planned.
Let’s not forget the fact that there is some truth in his early attacks. Yahoo! Isn’t exactly the “peoples” search engine at the moment (however I am a big fan of Yahoo! HotJobs).
