Man Is Fired After He Videotaped Himself Berating A Chik-fil-A Clerk [Video]
A man who videotaped himself getting free water at a Chick-Fil-A drive-thru just to berate the young woman serving him has been fired from his job.
Adam Smith is seen in his video admitting feeling happy after verbally attacking the Chick-Fil-A employee over CEO Dan Cathy’s same-sex-marriage remarks.
The video went viral, and people tracked him down online and grabbed copies of his resume. His employer, Vante, found out about the video and released this statement where they terminated him:
Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO
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.
So the big question is do you think his job should be able to fire him for something like this?
