WHO FIRED YOU FOR BEING TOO CRASS?
10. Judith Regan
In 2006, Rupert Murdoch fired Judith after remarks she made to a lawyer. According to the lawyer's handwritten notes, Judith said:
a) "Of all people, the Jews should know about ganging up, finding common enemies and telling the big lie."
b) "You know whose book I'd like to publish? Mel Gibson! That man has his shit together!"
c) "All day long I'd biddy biddy bum/If I were a wealthy man."
Before she lost her job, Judith hoped to publish a novel about Mickey Mantle, in which The Mick:
a) Has an affair with Marilyn Monroe while she's married to Joe DiMaggio.
b) Slashes his wife and a friend to death on an LA street corner, then pins it on a football player.
c) Meets five people in Heaven.
