To say that Rahul Yadav's behavior has been eccentric in the past few month would be an understatement. The former CEO of Housing.com went from lite banter to raging a storm in the industry.

From being called the 'bad boy of Indian startups' to making fun of Housing's board members on his Facebook, he has done it all.

A (supposedly) fan of the Avengers, Yadav never misses an opportunity to post his thoughts on Facebook.

Here is the timeline of his shenanigans, courtesy Facebook.

- It all started in May when Yadav posted this seemingly harmless message on Facebook.

- But it soon followed by this image. Something was brewing up.

- Early disagreements form the board?

- On 13 May, Yadav allotted all of his personal shares worth approximately Rs.150 crore-Rs.200 crore to all 2,251 employees of the company. The next day he 'challenged' Deepinder Goyal of Zomato and Bhavish Aggarwal to do the same.

- Taking shot at the VC on Facebook? Perhaps not the best of long term strategies.

- Another one for Goyal. Pretty harmless and funny too.

- After the Times group criticized the man for misguiding the journalists and spreading rumors.

- Things were about to escalate to a whole new level.

- Yadav's annoyance with the media grew by the day.

- If there ever was a thing called vanity.

- But the Housing board had had enough and called an meeting to discuss Yadav's future. Yadav maintained his cool. Very cool.

- And, he was fired. But within hours, he updated his Facebook.

- Yadav could have really used some optimism at this point.

- Oh, well. We assume that he was sad and not planning a comeback.

- Or maybe he was!

- And just days after his exit, the Housing website was hacked. Many pointed out that this might be an insider job, that Yadav had a hand in it. But Rahul denied the allegations and even gave a reason why he didn't do it.

- Perhaps thinking about his house while he was having a board meeting might have helped.

- And on Wednesday, Yadav seem to have already moved on.
