(Adam M. Smith) -- The man who took a video of himself confronting a female employee at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Tuscon, Ariz. has been fired.
Here's the statement from his now former employer 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.
Smith, as TheBlaze’s Mike Opelka reported this morning, thinks the chicken chain is, like, really hateful. So, naturally, he took a video of himself harassing a Chick-fil-A employee for having the nerve to work for such a “horrible” company.
After pulling up to the window and getting his free water, the activist proceeded to harangue the remarkably calm young woman. He even asked her how she can “live with herself” knowing that she works for such hateful people.
After enduring her almost backbreaking politeness, Smith felt it was necessary to end with these words: “I’m a nice guy, by the way… totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.”
