The parent of a “distressed baby” that AOL’s Tim Armstrong blamed for cutting employee benefits is speaking out.

Here’s a link to an article Deanna Fei wrote for Slate.com’s DoubleX. The title?

“My Baby and AOL’s Bottom Line”

Subheading?

“That ‘distressed baby’ who Tim Armstrong blamed for benefit cuts? She’s my daughter.”

An article on Gawker’s ValleyWag by Nitasha Tiku makes the claim that the AOL CEO “has a history of targeting pregnant employees,” citing specific examples of past behavior, including a lawsuit dating to Tim’s time at Google. If you want to get really nauseous, read some of the comments.

Tim apologized. A couple of times. Doesn’t seem to be helping.

Bottom line? Smooth move, Tim. Stay classy.
