TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:
Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.
The guy is probably out shopping for a slip-n-fall lawyer right now.
Ummm...this isn’t from The Onion, is it?
This is for real?
See ya, Creep. What goes around comes around.
I bet you just HATE being canned
Fantastic,Like I said,wont be a fun time at the Smitty home .Hope the College is next.
Hope the AH enjoyed his free water cause he will be looking for alot more free stuff.
Good riddance to this scumbag!
What the left unleashed has spun so far out of their control so fast it’s just...mind-boggling.
Wow, just, wow. I know nothing about this Vante company but they did the right thing and they deserve to thrive.
Now it’s time to check out the ‘college’ he claims to be an adjunct lecturer for and see if they’ve done the same thing.
Anyone that would hire a nasty jerk like that? Naw —I don’t believe it.
Either he hadn’t worked there in a long time, or he’s STILL working there.
She was cool, and he was a total jerk.
I’ll bet that’s a company of jerks.
I also do believe he’s gay, BTW.
Excellent! I notice they said “former CFO.” Even better.
Seeing this privileged jerk harass a minimum wage fast food employee (and boast about it on the Internet) certainly could not have given the company a very positive image.
The next press release will be from the college terminating his employment as an adjunct professor.
Job zot. Brutal. None of that “exploring other opportunities” crap, either. See ya, Mr. Smith.
He has a screw loose. BOTLO if you live in Tuscon.
file charges against the SOB
This is so cool! The power of the Internet harnessed for justice and righeousness. Not of the same magnitude as “Dan Rather Busted By The Pajama Squad”, but it’s close.
I’ll bet that douchebag is still wondering what hit him.
I also hope that his hate prank is constantly in the back of his mind whenever he is with others.
Consequences without delay, it’s a good day.
I’ve never heard of Vante, what kind of company is it? What do they do or make?
smug leftist prick...good thing that vid was caputured off youtube before the coward deleted it.
Haters gon’ hate.
They just played the video on Fox News (The Five)! Even that turd Beckel was outraged. Sometimes a jerk gets caught, and it’s especially fitting when he “opens fire, and shoots himself.”
I'm sure such a brilliant guy will find something appropriate.
A college might give him tenure.
I doubt it. He’s probably going to get an award from their Dept of LBGT and Whatever Studies.
The university will probably give him a full professorship.
ROFLMAO! Excellent they did the right thing!
I believe they make urinary catheters.
His resume, at arizona.edu is still up and lists his position with Vante as "Current". It would seem his being their 'former' CFO is a recent change.
Here’s the link to Vante’s “Management Team” webpage.
As of now, Smith is still listed. We’ll see when/if they remove him. Press release sure looked legit to me though.
They did the right thing to save their hides. Good on them!
I love it when a jerk pulls a stunt like this and it comes back to bite them.
His info is already off the College Website.
This is a fine day.
The hubris of this idiot got him fired. He didn’t have to post that video.
I wish I knew someone at that Chick-Fil-A to hear the buzz
Poor girl is probably traumatized. Just living her life and then thrown out into the Universe as a poster child of Chick Fil A.
LOVE IT!!!!!! BUH BYE, BIGOT!!!!
Hate to see anyone lose their job.....
that being said— this guy could have easily cost that young girl her job, if she had not responded well....
he could not just let people vote and speak with their wallet and time...
he HAD to get in someone’s face, then had the poor judgement to record it, post it for the world, and then include all his personal info, dragging his company into his inability to cope with people calmly and quietly living out their values and beliefs.....
once in a while,vile behavior has consequences.
He appears also to have been fired by the University of Arizona, as his he is not listed as part of the Finance and Research faculty any more...
Serves the bully right!!!
Interesting that CFA has come out and made a statement on bloomberg about it saying the dude is no longer at Vante.
Probably wearing one during video.
What goes around, comes around.
Now that I’ve seen the video of how this jag behaved, I get it... Great!!!
