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.

The video on Youtube is a little over 2 minutes long.
Is that the whole video?

Thanks,
Marko

Yeh, he’ll cry that his First Amendment rights were violated. No mention of CFLa’s of course.

The girl did a great job of handling the situation. Vante should hire her.

Maybe sometimes there is some justice.

Amazing!!! It's about time that actions this despicable are justly rewarded. I'd like to think this would teach a lesson but probably not.

He deserves to have this follow him as he hunts for a job. One company he won’t be working for is CFA. His piss-poor attitude, vile demeanor, and hateful personality would disqualify him from consideration. On the other hand, THE VIEW could use another nasty bitch.

Well, from what I heard on Rush this afternoon, he has a good, clear speaking voice so if he can learn how to say “Do you want fries with that”? he may have a future somewhere, sometime.

they make urinary catheters. Vante Co.

Let's just say that Adam Smith got CATHY-eterized. As in Truett and Daniel of CFA.

The reason why this douche bag did what he did was because he wanted to instigate a fight..he wanted to catch this woman say something “Anti Gay” on video so he could use it..but instead this woman was so gracious a friendly(She showed SO much more restraint than I ever would) and she showed this guy to be a jackass.
The fact that he said at the end that he was NOT gay proves to me that he is gay. If he wasn’t he would have no need to say it, but he did, because he is a closet homo

The Feds and Arizona would be very wise to check out any weapons this puke may possess. He’s the kind of freak that will go off on others when his queer little ego is hurt.

If he doesn't have any, BATFE will be glad to provide them.

It is hard to fathom how utterly stupid this was. In a terrible economy, he has now made himself virtually unemployable (at least at any high profile position). This will follow him wherever he goes.

What company, in their right mind, would give his application more than a minute’s consideration?

Is it wrong to find this enjoyable?

I wrote an email to the CEO and the GM and copied their posted contact areas for support, sales and info.

It was a pretty good composition if I do say so myself - and I do.

Probably what did him in.

Along with the other 50k? 100k? similar contacts today.

To quote the noted philosopher Bugs Bunny,"What a maroon! What an ignoranimus!"

Poor girl is probably traumatized. Just living her life and then thrown out into the Universe as a poster child of Chick Fil A.

She was able to keep her cool and project a professional demeanor in the face of extreme abuse, and millions of people now know it. She has a bright future.

that being said— this guy could have easily cost that young girl her job, if she had not responded well....

That was his intent. That is exactly why he was recording. He was trying to provoke an incident that could be used against CFA.

He failed spectacularly.

He's a nasty SOB, and deserves everything that is now raining down on him.

Chick-fil-A should reward that girl for putting up with that puke as politely as she did. Maybe pay her to make a series of commercials for the company. She could be their spokesperson and get compensated for it.

Good grief! Please, the guy’s kidding himself if he thinks he’s not gay. The constant reference to going over and “sitting” with the gays gives him away. He was anxious to make a connection.

It was a PDF file so I downloaded it. Interestingly, it shows he started with Avante in 2010. This information on his personal financial issues dates back to 2009. No indication of what results he saw from his own financial woes, and I wonder if Vante was aware of this when they hired him. In any event, he enjoyed two + short years before putting himself back in trouble again...

I noticed that Adam announced several times that he was not queer .... my guess is that he is a proud closet queer too woosie to come out.

My bet is that he will be there tomorrow kissing his fellow queer.

Of course, Mr. Smith will blame the hateful bigoted Christian right, and not his own actions, for getting the can. Whatever. Free speech has consequences. Some win by having record breaking days, others lose by getting spectacularly zotted.

Sodomites that were thinking about participating in the ‘Kiss-In’ tomorrow might want to think twice...do you want YOUR employers seeing you on local or national television over the weekend playing kissy face with your same-sex partner in a protest against traditional marriage? Might be a lot of job openings come Monday morning...keep those resumes ready.
