Carol Bartz doesn't hold back in punches when it comes to her removal from the CEO post at Yahoo

Carol Bartz was never been one to mince her words. She famously told Michael Arrington to "f**k off" last year (on stage during an interview) at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in New York City. Today, she let loose in a phone interview with Fortune Magazine following her departure Yahoo.

"These people f***ed me over," Bartz told Fortune's Patricia Sellers. Bartz upped the ante by going directly after Roy Bostock, Yahoo Board Chairman. She explained that on a scheduled phone call on Tuesday evening, Bostock started out with lawyer-speak. 

Bartz fired back at Bostock, interrupting, "Roy, I think that's a script. Why don't you have the balls to tell me yourself?" After Bostock finished his prepared statement, Bartz threw in a rather ironic jab of her own to end the conversation; "I thought you were classier?"

Bartz succeeded Jerry Yang as CEO of Yahoo on January 13, 2009. Yahoo was already in trouble when Bartz took over, but didn’t do much to improve its situation during her tenure.

After Bostock's phone call, Bartz sent an email out to Yahoo employees via her iPad to announce her departure.

Since that time, it's been revealed that Bartz will get a $3 million USD lump, plus a pro-rated bonus of $1 million USD to $2 million USD courtesy of her severance package. She stands to rack up even more courtesy of her stock options.
