There’s a huge divide between those for and against Chick-fil-A CEO’s stance on Gay marriage. Even Antoine Dodson feels some kinda way about still loving the company’s famous chicken sandwiches and he’s an openly Gay male.
But most agree that a recent viral video currently circulating went way too far!
Adam Smith, a Tuscon Arizona man, posted an online video of himself going through a Chick-fil-A drive-thru and ordering only the free water.
What he did to that poor Chick-fil-A cashier got him a ton of criticism and also got him a spot on the unemployment line.
Details + video below…
“Chick-fil-A is a hateful company,” Smith tells the employee.
“I don’t know how you sleep at night,” Smith adds at another point. “This is a horrible corporation with horrible values.”
The employee never loses her composure and even wishes Smith a nice day. He then responds:
“I will. I just did something really good. I feel purposeful.
[Sidebar: If by “purposeful” he means “lost his job” then yup… he won!
Smith got a pink slip from his gig as chief financial officer of Vante, a Tucson medical manufacturing company, after the video made the rounds.
Vante’s CEO, Roger Vogel, issued the following statement regarding the incident:
“Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A,” the company said in a statement. “Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.”
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees,” the statement continued.
Vogel said he wasn’t weighing in on either side of the debate, which began when Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said he supports the “biblical” definition of marriage. Same-sex marriage advocates blasted the company, which in turn prompted a national outpouring of support for the chicken chain on Wednesday. (source)
