Marissa Mayer Wouldn’t Hire Gwyneth Paltrow Without A College Degree

While this story is ultimately one of many piss-poor business decisions that will eventually drive Yahoo! into the ground, it does involve Gwyneth Paltrow being deemed “less than,” so my pants are already off. This is happening, people. Just embrace it. The New York Times reports:

Even though the actress Gwyneth Paltrow had created a best-selling cookbook and popular lifestyle blog, Mayer, who habitually asked deputies where they attended college, balked at hiring her as a contributing editor for Yahoo Food. According to one executive, Mayer disapproved of the fact that Paltrow did not graduate college.

Granted, Marissa Mayer hired Katie Couric who’s giving Stephen Collins a platform to spew his child molester apologetics, the important thing is Gwyneth Paltrow was told “no,” and Jesus’s secret wife! Mop. I need a mop. And someone to reset my pelvis because I’m pretty sure it just did a 180. – *looks down* – Nope, that’s a 270. Medic!
