ABC News(NEW YORK) — Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer says she’s not worried about the adult content on her new acquisition — Tumblr — and she’ll make sure that people who don’t want to see it won’t.

Meanwhile, 26-year-old Tumblr CEO and co-founder David Karp will stay on, and he’s growing more comfortable with the notion of advertising on his mostly ad-free site.

Mayer and Karp made the comments on ABC’s Good Morning America Tuesday during their first broadcast interview since the $1.1 billion acquisition.

In announcing the deal on her very own Tumblr account, Mayer vowed “not to screw it up.”  She promised to let the network of 50 billion blog posts function independently.
