“Less than two months after getting hired to be PayPal’s new director of strategy, Rakesh “Rocky” Agrawal took to Twitter to insult some of his fellow employees. His tweets started at about 1 a.m. and contained numerous spelling errors.
Within hours, PayPal said he was no longer at the company. However, Agrawal says he quit his job at PayPal before he published the tweets.
According to his Twitter account, Agrawal was at Jazz Fest in New Orleans when he started calling out PayPal employees. He called Christina Smedley, PayPal’s vice president of global communications, a “useless middle manager” as well as a “piece of s–t.” He then tweeted “People who should be fire from paypal Don Christmas a pool a kick.”
