"People think because I have tattoos and I run a company called Nasty Gal that I'm crazy," Amoruso told interviewer Alexia Tsotsis of the voice mail. She didn't explain what the voice mail said exactly but noted that it was "super aggressive."Amoruso declined to say who the investor was, but noted that this person is still a venture capitalist. "They're a good firm and have good investments and stuff, but that doesn't really mean anything when people do stuff like that," she said. "They probably don't even know who they are and they probably don't remember that happening, and that's why they do things like that."
Amaruso isn't the first woman to be offended by a man in tech. Yunha Kim, CEO of Locket, recently posted an inappropriate email she received from a man she was trying to recruit. The recruit replied, "I'm pretty happy with my current job, but if you're single I'd like to date you. Perhaps there are some unconventional ways to lure me away from my company (besides stock options) if you know what I mean :)"
