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.

I hope your daughter continues to develop a healthy and realistic world view.

This was never about “chicken”, though.

This was about one man’s stand against perverted ‘marriages’.

I guess he is looking to any LGBT organization for a job. I do not know who, as even the haters of Chick Fil A,will have a hard time forgetting how he treated that cashier.

Were that it was so.

My guess, however, is that he will be welcomed with open arms - as a hero/martyr - at most any lgbt/atheist-supporting org...

It said that people looked up his employer, so the guy wasn’t specifically advertising it.

I've been watching the entire thing since early this morning.

His employers, location and everything else was posted on the social networks.

No one tried to dig up his info, the idiot was PROUD of what he was doing.

Then it went viral. Something like 2000+ negative comments. He couldn't get it deleted fast enough before someone had saved it.

Too bad, so sad.

He did it to himself.

The word awesome doesn't come close to describing how Vante's actions taken against this employee embarrassing it publicly can be described. It is so about time that some of these folks who have made life hell for others are now losing their jobs. So many of them have caused me incredible harm throughout my career because they disagreed with me. Now, they get to lose their jobs because they can't keep their mouths shut.

I’ll bet he has an employment contract with this company that nails him for his conduct. He figures he is through.

Suspect he is not only toast with his current employer, but with a great many others.

I did not know he was still exhibiting the same tack.

"... I am willing to wager anyone that if you were a fly on the wall at Vande,this guy is was and always will be a pompus piece of shit that thinks he can(could) do and say whatever and where ever he want."

No doubt here.

I said in another thread that I've seen hated executive terminations cause workers to come out of their offices and cubicles singing 'Ding Dong, The Wicked Witch Is Dead' on several occasions and it's the most rewarding thing you can be witness to in the corporate world.

When rgw aspiring young executive hopefuls at Vande learned about what this asshole did at Chick-Fil-A, I bet that even Thorazine injections couldn't have wiped the smiles off their faces. If they replace his position internally, one of them basically just won a brand new BMW.

I bet they're still laughing and recounting the story to each other, mimicing his voice and actions as he was escorted out the door.

Oh, and by the way, Shep Smith should be fired for his ridiculous comments yesterday.

Shep did not swish his stinky butt up to a Chic fil A employee and throw a hissy fit for the Fox News cameras.

He has a right to his opinion - but opinions are like a$$h0les - everyone has one. Liberals suffer diarrhea.

This guy was an officer, and the company has customers, and suppliers, auditors, and other employees.

Putting himself out publicly in such a manner can attract a lot of negative attention, and his superiors decided they don’t need the hassle.


That is exactly correct.

He’s probably been harassing normal men and women who don’t share his slutty values at work. It’s called sexual harassment or sexual dominance and it is a central aspect of the gay lifestyle. Liberal sex fascists are vindictive and abusive twerps.

The Left can make him their oppressed queer hero and he’ll get plenty of ego stroking for his “courage” in harassing that young woman at the resturant.

I want to give her a tip for putting up with that louse without cussing or poking his eyes out.

This guy is a classic modern liberal. He is a scold to anyone that doesn’t follow his liberal orthodoxy, but goes a step further to memorialize it on the web. Then he can show the world what a ‘good person’ he is. The guy is a narcissist, just like a certain former soda jerk from Hawaii now living in Washington.

“Sir, Cathy owns Chick-Fil_A and I am damn proud of him for standing up against the fascist left. he can say any damn thing he wants.”

I didn’t know he owned it; I believe his family owns it, since his father started it.

My point was that just like Smith’s company was free to fire him for his conduct of expressing his free speech, so would the officers/directors be free to do the same with Cathey IF the case had been they disagreed with his expression of his free speech. (which obviously they did NOT disagree, nor do you, nor do I)

I have to say, the lady stayed classy.

2... It would have been easy to get angry and start shouting, she didn’t. Good training and/or common sense.

3... For every one of these videos, there were probably 20 other unrecorded hatemongers, less inclined to perform, but still inclined to spew.

“The guy is a narcissist”

You nailed him.

I saw a highly qualified executive get fired about one month after he was hired. He was rude with one of the customers, then bragged about it. He was gone as soon as the paper work could get finished.

When people start bragging about how rude then can be, as Mr. Adams did by posting his video, you know it’s only a matter of time when he’s going to do it to you or one of your customers. Firing him was just a wise decision.

Maybe there’s a gay bathhouse in need of a CFO with a sharp tongue?

I have found I was mistaken. I saw reports using their Middle Name which is in common with both and the Father uses as his preferred name.

It was Dan Truett Cathy, S. Truett Cathy’s son, who made the original comments on traditional marriage.

The article says it probably won’t change the idiots behavior. I say it will. Discipline is never a one time thing. It takes continuous effort. If this guys never gets disciplined then his action will never change and will only get worse, so at least losing this job and probably having a real tough time finding another might get his attention, but doing nothing certainly won’t.

Yep, very well handled by window clerk. Bet she is a very sweet lady. Did not deserve this treatment from a total jerk.

Years ago Mrs. Peet was a head teller at a bank in a college town. People like Mr. Smith were the norm -- there is not a creature on the planet nastier than an academic bigot. They had one so bad tha he regularly left the line-tellers in tears. The Mrs. couldn't do a thing about it; not enough authority. The problem was finally solved when the branch manager went on vacation. His substitute heard the beginning of abusive customer's rant and intervened. Closed the "perfessor's" account, handed him a check, and told him never to set foot in the bldg again.

Not the first time I heard of a customer being fired[1], but the best. *HUGE SMILE*

Peet

[1] Like the idiot pulling wheelies until he crashed in a m'cycle dealership's parking lot. Customer *fired*!

“...The grounding foundation of “liberalism”....”

Liberalism embraces secular humanism which is the physical manifestation of what took place in Genesis Chapter 3. They have to deny/hate God in order to try to substantiate their existence. It really is a serious form of insanity as we see everyday when one of these clowns opens their pie hole.
