Bartz had also called the company board "doofuses" thereby violating the agreement that bars her from speaking negatively of the company. She had also claimed that the company had "f***** me over".
She commented in this slanderous fashion during an interview with Fortune magazine that is expected to cost her $10 million from her payout in the event of firing. In the interview, Bartz stated that she was to call Yahoo chairman Bostock Roy the evening she was fired. She said that she was read the lawyer prepared statement by Roy intended to dismiss her.
