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.

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 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.
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...
