Pao lost all counts of her case against the venture capital firm on March 27, 2015, when a jury found that her gender was not the motivating reason for her not being promoted to a general or senior partner, or for her termination at the firm. In June, Pao was ordered to pay $275,966.63 in court costs to her former employer Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

From what I've read from this, she was fired for being incompetent.

I for one am glad they can put this crap behind them. She has been a huge embarrassment for the Asian American community (well at least in my circle).

Most people won't judge Asian Americans by one entitled joker.

You have no idea how fast this shit spreads through the community. It's almost lightning fast (at the person to person level), even people who don't know how to use a computer were talking about it.

Where does road end? All the Jews? This is nothing race-phobic, its a foul grafter looking for a payout. It deserves to be stomped.

I agree with weezkitty, I don't think people have viewed it as "tssst, typical Asian Americans". She's just a really, really, unlikeable bitch, who is really just a dumpster-fire of a person.

Asian Americans are awesome, you get to be an great American slob, usually minus the slob.

Most likely she id more of a representative of the SF /silcom valley type of people.

The worst of it is she was given every imaginable advantage and still failed. They hired her a mentor who worked with google, offered her a cushy board job with an affiliate, finally caved and promoted her despite multiple negative evaluations, and kept trying to work with her to improve her even after she was known to be incompetent, and hostile.

Most jobs you're lucky that they explained why they fired you. Here the more you fuck up the better your career fairs! And after all that consideration she still sues them for the exact amount her husband needs to pay off his own legal issues. Fucking beautiful. I'm just glad she walked away having fucked up her lawsuit as badly as her career.

Asian here too. I think she's the first Asian I've ever accused of playing the race card (as well as the woman card).
