I really don't care where your politics lie but the way this Adam Smith guy handled himself was pathetic and immature. Whatever issues he had with Chick-Fil-A didn't warrant him being such an absolute jerk to a girl that was simply trying to get through her work-day and wasn't interested in his politics. Not sure that he deserved to lose his job over it, but its always interesting to see hateful people whine about the "hatred" of others.

"OMG, I have a problem with the COO of a large company, quick let me go harass one of their random employee's for it." Props to whoever this girl is for maintaining her composure in dealing with this wierdo.

In a couple months someone might make a video at a McDonald's drive-through and Adam Smith will be working the window asking, "Would you like fries with that?"

Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE, Juram.

Obviously this sorry excuse for a human being deserves to be fired and hopefully he will be living under a bridge somewhere other than Arizona in the very near future.

KUDOS to Vante for their immediate reaction to this atrocity and ridding their organization of the likes of SCUMBAG Adam Smith.

It's kind of sad that it never occurred to this guy that he did not come off too well in his video. I mean he was a CFO of a company, and I'm sure had a fair amount of responsibility. But how can you lack any common sense whatsoever. Forget about the politics for a second. Wouldn't you look at the video and think...."Um..I look like a bit of a a** here" and not post it for the world to see. I kind of want to feel bad for the guy losing his career, but talk about bringing it upon yourself!

though I agree that Chick-Fil-A's owner is certainly bigoted and is hurting his company and employees, it's very strange that a seemingly-educated guy would make his point this way in a youtube....highly choreographed, scripted, posed...and very amateurish...the staff person had evidently gotten a company memo on how to handle this situation and was entirely competent...

this story is now national news and has gone viral.....

Maybe that was his intent. Even if it was, there are smarter ways to express your opinion than this.

Yeah. Maybe he can hide in the bushes and pee on a wall or something.

I loved the capper: "I'm really a nice guy." Oh, sure. You just have a thing for hassling young women over something completely out of their control.

What a coward.
