Chick-Fil-A'd: Bully Fired After Video Goes Viral
Breitbart ^ | 2 Aug 2012, 3:18 PM PDT | Dana Loesch

Posted on 08/02/2012 5:06:51 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

Adam Smith, the man who videotaped himself getting free water at a Chick-Fil-A drive-thru just to berate the young woman as been fired.

Smith in his video said he was happy to feel "purposeful" in condemning the Chick-Fil-A employee over CEO Dan Cathy's same-sex-marriage remarks. The video went viral and citizen journalists tracked him down online and grabbed copies of his resume. His employer, Vante, released this statement a bit ago:

Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO

Employee Has Left the Company 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.

This "Adam Smith" is a flaming Leftie who really stepped in it with his rudeness & hate.

He no longer has his CFO position. Wonder where he will work next. Such a price he has just paid.

Adam Smith tried to bully a uninvolved teenage girl, failed miserably, got reamed royally, and has four sons that can aspire to be like him.

Good deal if they really fired him. My guess is he will be back in a week or two when they think no one is still watching.

Guy really is a major tool. Even though he claims he’s not he sure sounds gay, may just be a metrosexual. Either way he needs a good ass kicking. Hopefully someone in AZ will think the same and look him up. Kudos to the girl for keeping her cool when confronted by the far left anal pore.

Pretty stupid way to lose a job - going out of his way to make it happen.

Can’t imagine what good thing he possibly thought would come of this.

Removing HATE from our college campuses ONE "PROFESSOR" at a time!

I a related story, Shemp Smith just signed off with "we'll be here tomorrow. At least someone will be". Sounds like Shemp might have taken the day off for the homosexual Choke-ur-Chicken Day tomorrow.

“No one pressured Vante. Vante, a private company, made this decision themselves and as a private entity have every right to do so. I support this right. The community didn’t make the decision to fire Smith, they did. This is the difference between the true belief in free speech as demonstrated by conservatives and progressives.”


Not sure I can agree with Dana here. There have been lots of comments on FR that the Vante website was not working most likely due to a huge influx of people expressing their displeasure.

Some do not support Smith’s being fired as he was on his own time, not on company business.

But the cavalier way in which he berated and hounded that young girl offers a mirror into the man’s soul. I doubt this is the first time he treated others, especially those in subservient positions who are complete innocents, in such a cruel way. And then to post it for the world to see - the man is sick.

LMFAO!! What a loony-toon.

Yeah, it’s funny he got canned, he deserves it,, however there is a darker undercurrent - these folks are dangerous as hell.

There is no reasoning with people like this, no facts or logic, they only operate on “feelings” and emotion, nonsensical cliches, etc. A very sad commentary on the education establishment, his maturity level is on par with a child.

I bet dimes to dollars somewhere in his contract is a clause about holding up the company image even in the off hours. I have been seeing this pop up more and more with salaried types (and you BET he is salary, bare minimum? yes. Bonus', stocks, etc, etc. butter his bread.
too bad, so sad for him.

There is apparently another video he put out of him harassing a man carrying a cross on Good Friday according to a few in the comment section. Wonder where we might find a copy?

What a complete , total jerk. He’s a CFO taking on a high school age kid serving food at a fast food restaurant. A bully. I’m glad he lost his job. The only unfortunate part of this whole incident is that he bears the name of one of the greatest philosophers and economists of all time.

as he was on his own time,

If he worked on the loading dock, I would agree.

He was the frigging CFO. Maybe on the BOD. Officers of the company can't do crap like that, publicize it, and get away with it.

You can get away with murder in the top spots, but you have to be discrete about it.
