    Really, guys?
    When you make it a public spectacle, possibly dragging your employer into the ruckus - yes.

    Gotta love how he has to add the caveat, "I'm not gay."

    Ya who doesn't remember learning in history class when Hitler and his buddies went around trolling restaurants owned by people they viewed as political opponents? O wait no I'm thinking of the time his thugs went around over a period of three days and killed a hundred guys for being political opponents then seized almost total control of the state.

    I get them confused too man, no biggie.

    Apples and oranges. He literally went out of his way so he can be a douchbag to some innocent person.Not only that, he videotaped himself being a douchebag to that innocent person and posted the video online as though it was something to be proud of. His employers were probably embarrassed as hell to have such a douchebag working for them and probably figured that he acts this way to his coworkers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't know. They guy was out of hand, he was being a jerk to epic proportion, I understand that. But I don't know if you should be fired for it. He wasn't on company time or representing the company, so I don't really think firing was warranted. It's getting to be that none of us can have an outside life these days and that is perchance a bit concerning.

    Agreed. His face is already known around the world now as That Chik-Fil-A Douchebag. That's worse than any firing.

    For a CFO he wasn't very bright, and oh yeah like he was totally straight. His voice sounded a little girlie to me..

    This jerk has achieved a level of assholisim that even in a nation known for its high percentage of assholes, raises the bar.

    I hope someone beats him to a pulp. Abusing women emotionally, with not an iota of justification, is worthy of violence.

    Oh, it's been this way for a long time, to which foolish conventioneers can attest. On some level, whether this is "fair" or "right," you're pretty much de facto representing your org when you're in public.
