Jill Abramson Is Literally Hitting Back

Jill Abramson is hitting back... literally.

Just one day after the former New York Times' executive editor was surprisingly ousted from the paper over alleged management issues, Abramson has been spotted -- in an Instagram post her daughter published Thursday:

The text includes the hashtag #pushy, likely referring to NYT management's alleged description of her that has caused discussion over the paper's gender parity problem.

The media world exploded with theories about Abramson's removal, the most popular being that she was pushed out after confronting management over not being paid as much as her male predecessor.

Despite statements from the paper's publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., and her successor Dean Baquet, Abramson herself has kept quiet about the move... until now.
