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.

He no longer has his CFO position. Wonder where he will work next. Such a price he has just paid.
So I guess techno-mob rule can be a good thing sometimes.
The man is a nut and should be locked up for public safety.
That was the most expensive cup of water ever!
And he thought he got something for nothing.
Oh, and by the way, Shep Smith should be fired for his ridiculous comments yesterday.
What a queer attitude... by Mr. Smith...
So...what’s the job demand and pay scale for “Purposeful former CFOs”?
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.
“Wonder where he will work next.”
I doubt it will be Chick-fil-A ! HAHA!
“Wonder where he will work next.”
I doubt it will be Chick-fil-A ! HAHA!
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.
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.
"maybe he can get a job at ...Chick-fil-a"
“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.
bwahaha....fantastic. ‘Bout damn time these leftists assholes start atoning for their actions.... Absolutely love it.
Ben and Jerry’s might hire him.
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.
Should have poured it on his hot head.
Social media (Facebook, Twitter and such) claims another. HAHAHAHA!
What did Smith say?
The loon will be the next dim -bulb spokesman after they fire the bimbo.
Did he take the day off OR? ?? Too much to hope for!!!
LOL! Gayest LinkedIn profile pic ever!!
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?
“He’s soooooo excited, he might just say a few words ... it just makes sense ... I feel purposeful”
He will have a government job paying big bucks within 10 days.
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.
He just received a very expensive lesson from the school of hard knocks. Whether he learns anything remains to be seen.
Hoping Breitbart gets some captures before it all disappears.
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.
He'd be a good fit in the Obama administration.
Shep Smith, that is...
He’s “totally heterosexual” and he mentions that he’s doing this because they are against someone “just because (someone) wants to kiss a guy”
Yeah...right. Plus, there is that voice. Poor kids.
I believe he referred to Appreciate Chick-Fil-A Day as National Intolerance Day.
I predict he will never work there again. They’re not going to take that kind of chance after all this.
Really? Ping me if you get a thread on that. TIA
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.,True,but if you are on the Exec team of a major corp you need to “filter” your actions and hate speech or pay the price.So long ass hole
Adam does need new emplyment. Hmmm. I hear the Chic-filet is growing and may need more window servers. However, I must wonder if he can be sufficently gracious when encountering deliberately rude customers?
“Cant imagine what good thing he possibly thought would come of this.”
I suspect very little thought went into it - he we was blinded by his leftist, self-righteous rage.
Oh, wait..she can sue him for publicly using her image without her express, written consent.
Hope she hires a lawyer.
