    Viral video of man picking on Chick-fil-A worker gets him fired

    Link:

    People on both sides of the Chick-fil-A debate seemed to agree that a Tucson man who made a viral video belittling a patient restaurant worker acted like a sanctimonious jerk, even his boss – make that ex-boss.

    Adam Smith, who posted an online video of himself going through a Chick-fil-A drive-thru and ordering only the free water, was canned from his gig as chief financial officer of Vante, a Tucson medical manufacturing company, after the video made the rounds.
    I think the company that fired this guy did the right thing. The Chick-fil-A employee that this jerk bullied has nothing to do with the opinions of the company’s president and this type of bullying is nothing more than good old fashioned fascism.

    He's a jackass but fascism doesn't mean what you think it means.

    What a douche. Gotta give the drive thru worker credit, she handled this crappy situation this nimrod put her in with utmost professionalism and class. Hopefully the corporate Chick Fil-A office has taken noticed and streamline her for advancement.

    I agree. She might end up getting some job offers from other companies as well.

    So...if I'm rude to someone outside of work...as in, on my own time, my company should be able to fire me for it? If I cut someone off in traffic? Blow through a red light? Maybe yell at someone, for whatever reason?


    Really, guys?

    Yeah, it’s called at-will employment.

    Yes really. I wouldnt want my company associated with someone like that who published his video online.

    That is the great thing about being an employer. As an employer, you can choose the type you work with as long as you don't discriminate. You can be fired for having a horrible facebook page, why not for what you post on youtube?

    I'd say for the most part, no. But when you're one of the company officers, in this case this douche was the CFO, you're a public figurehead for the company. This guy's actions in his personal life could have impact on the company's perception as well as business.
