This guy was a top-level executive, and all his companies’ websites were shut down yesterday while they tried to erase any record of his existence within the company. I figured he wasn’t gonna be around long.

Not so sure he got fired for his ‘beliefs’ so much as the manner in which he decided to express those beliefs. Especially doing the video & putting it out into the world.

Verbally attacking a teen age girl who is doing her job & who didn’t do anything to initiate or retaliate against this jerk would be my biggest reason to fire him.

As an executive of the company, he is a full-time, all the time, representatative of the company & it’s values, IMO.

I would be thinking that more & more companies are now looking at their company code of conduct manuals after this jerk went off.

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)

The conduct of the two men is not comparable. Cathy merely expressed his belief in a polite response to a question. Smith not only verbally harassed and abused another person with whom he disagreed, but he also broke the law by recording the confrontation despite the young lady's objections AND then posting it on the internet. Had he merely expressed polite disagreement when asked a question, then he should not have been fired. But that's not what he did.

Yes. I guessed that after he insisted, repeadley, that he was not gay.

Yes ... that young lady is the real star and the only one on the vid who is executive material. She should get Smith’s job. This vid is actually a great promo for Chick fil A as it shows the high quality of their employees.

For an executive - sure it is! I he had to stay pass 5, 6 7 or 8 pm - there is no overtime - he is salaried.

He is NOT an hourly worker.

“Wonder where he will work next.”

Probably cleaning toilets but not at Chick-Fil-A! I would wager that he has seen his last well paid job. What a fool.

“For an executive - sure it is!”

No. Executives also have private personal time and lunch is part of that. ‘Executive’ is not a class of indentured servant. ‘Salaried” does not mean “no personal time ever”.
