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.
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!!!
Well, I did send the CEO an email advising that the lack of judgment displayed by a C-level employee in this public manner would be grounds for immediate removal in varios companies I’ve been involved with, as it would affect public and marekt percetion of how well the company is run (and thus their stock price). The astounding lack of sense shown by this bozo in this incident is consistent with his judgment that queer marriage is a good idea.
“I hope all employers in his area remember his face and throw his job application in the waste basket. “
Or, on the condition of first successfully completing Anger Management Class, he is offered a position manning the Drive-Thru window at Chick-fil-A.
Under the training and supervision fo the young lady he lambasted, of course.

I imagine there is pressure by Alumni of U of A to fire this professor.
Since he is an adjunct professor, it is not hard to do.
Their server is now down for “maintenance,” probably to remove his name?
I imagine that they do.
>> Poor girl is probably traumatized.
I dunno... she looked surprised, but not traumatized. My guess is, she was prepared for the possibility of a jerk like that and given specific instructions on what to do. If so, that would indicate good management.
Bless her heart! She has more character in her little finger than Adam Smith will ever have in his entire hateful body.
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.
