In an interview with the New York Times, Pao apologized, but said that most users don't care about what has transpired over the last two days. She further said, according to the Times, that "the most virulent detractors on the site are a vocal minority."
“I’m sorry we let our community down yesterday,” Ms. Pao said, adding, “We should have informed our community moderators about the transition and worked through it with them.”
She further said that calls for her to resign, including a petition that has eclipsed 124,000 supporters, "did not faze her."
About her job, Ms. Pao concluded, "It’s an exciting job. We’re doing a lot behind the scenes that people have not seen yet."
