Former PayPal director of strategy Rakesh "Rocky" Agrawal has stepped up his war of words with the company's senior management, threatening to share personal text messages from president David Marcus.
Agrawal left the firm over the weekend after less than two months in the job following a late night Twitter rant in which he insulted colleagues.
The often incoherent tweets, sent from a jazz festival in New Orleans in the early hours of Saturday morning, specifically targeted Christina Smedley, PayPal's vice president of global communications.
Read one: "Duck you Smedley you useless middle. manager."
The following day Agrawal apologised to Marcus and Stan Chudnovsky, PayPal's VP of growth and strategy. He also deleted the tweets (which were screengrabbed
by Business Insider) and claimed that he was testing a new phone and that the tweets were meant to be direct messages.
However, Marcus was unimpressed. In a blog post
on the incident he rejects Agrawal's overtures: "Thanks but no thanks, Rocky. When you attack and insult my team, you attack, and insult me and the rest of PayPal. I think the world of the people you've insulted. They are some of the best people I've worked with in my career, and I will not tolerate your mad rants any longer."
Marcus adds: "Now...if you're a close friend of Rocky's and you're out there, I'd strongly suggest getting to him sooner rather than later, as his behavior is extremely worrisome."
Agrawal has since gone on the offensive again, accusing Chudnovsky of being a "corporate stooge", demanding that his former boss "stand up for me" and threatening to divulge personal communications:
