Yahoo CEO Could Lose $10 Mil for Cursing

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Fired former Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz could lose $10 million for violating a non-disparagement clause when she raged that the company's board members 'f***ed me over.' Miss Bartz, in an interview with Fortune after her Tuesday firing by phone, also said the board was 'trying to show that they're not the doofuses that they are.' However, according to Fortune, her contract with Yahoo contained a clause barring her from criticizing the internet company. A source told the magazine that Bartz could lose $10 million over her pointed comments. That clause, if violated, could allow Yahoo to cancel a $10 million payout, due if she was fired. Bartz, 63, was hired in January 2009 and fired in a Tuesday phone call from Yahoo chairman Roy Bostock. She told Forbes that Bostock began reading a lawyer's prepared statement during their call - and that she blasted him. "I said, 'Roy, I think that's a script. Why don't you have the balls to tell me yourself?'" Bartz recounted. Her closing shot: "I thought you were much classier." Bartz did offer praise for Tim Morse, her successor as Yahoo's CEO. "He's a great guy," she said. So what do you think? Were Bartz's remarks and language enough to provoke a $10 million penalty? Leave a comment below and let us know.,0,5823494.story
