Exec Bullies Chick-Fil-A Worker, Then Promptly Gets Fired For It
Posted in the Beckley Forum
Adam Smith, former CFO and treasurer of medical supplies manufacturer Vante, caused quite a stir today when he put up a video of himself bullying a Chick-fil-A drive-thru employee in Tucson on YouTube.
Smith berates the worker about her company in the video, which was initially titled ”Reduce $’s to Chick-Fil-A’s Hate Groups.” It has since been taken down (though others have uploaded it too).
"I don't know how you live with yourself and work here," he tells the employee at the window. "I don't understand it. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. You deserve better."
”I’m a nice guy, by the way … totally heterosexual," he continues. "Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.”
Chick-fil-A is currently in the middle of a controversy sparked by president and COO Dan Cathy's comments about gay marriage. He said that going against the Biblical definition of marriage is "inviting God's judgment on our nation."
Vante didn't approve of Smith's behavior, and he's no longer working there.
Here's the press release from Vante announcing that Smith is "no longer an employee of our company," effective immediately:
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.
Here is the video of what this "man" did!
It's funny knowing this snarky asshole liberal got his just reward!ROFLMAO!
The CEO of Vante fired him. The CEO donated to the Democrats. Shows democrats aren't idiots!
He should have been fired! That lady should file suite against him and take everything that he has. He deserves to lose everything! He should have stopped recording. I bet he would have been upset if someone recorded him. He needs kicked in the nuts.
