Nope. I just don't see anything in Alibaba's financials that show an American company owning a 50% share. Let alone buying one just prior to their 2011 "Gold Supplier" scandal.

If you mean Yahoo... sorry they own less than 25% and they got that back in 2005.

[EDIT] A little more research shows Yahoo paid $1 billion for a 40% share in 2005 and sold half of that back to Alibaba in 2012. Still not 50%, still 6 years before the scandal and Yahoo was never accused of anything even remotely related to the scandal.
There are two types of people in this world: those that pronounce GIF with a soft G, and those who do not deserve to speak words, ever.
