Reupload of Adam Smith’s “Reduce $’s to Chick-Fil-A’s Hate Groups”
A YouTube video produced by Adam Smith, opposing the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day by berating a Chick-fil-A employee in the drive thru, has gone viral twice — once by the original author and a second time by another user that re-uploaded the deleted original video. News Friday spread that the rude man, Adam Smith, a CFO for Tucson medical manufacturing company ‘Vante’ has been fired.
“We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante.”
— Roger Vogel, CEO of Vante
Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day participants across the United States were peaceful and happy-go-lucky for the majority of time of all events.

TRANSCRIPT at the Drive-Thru at a Tucson, Arizona Chick-fil-A Wednesday, August 1, 2012:
Adam Smith: Well I’m waiting in line … I’m next in line … I’m pretty excited about my free water. Um I also see like a group of thirty college-aged students over there. I’m wondering if they’re doing a sit in. I’m so excited I might just join them. Well let’s see what happens with my free water. And I think I might just say a few words, too. Let’s see.
It’s been a long line. There’s a long line of cars too … I don’t know if you can see, but it’s you know. People gonna have to have their Chick-fil-A anti-gay breakfast sandwich. Mmmmm. Always tastes better when it’s full of hate. Mmmmm. Love it. Come on I want my free water. Come on. I really hope those students over there are going to do a sit in. I think they are. It just makes sense.
[DRIVING UP, FIRST CAR]
Here I go.
Hey, how you doin’?
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: Good
Adam Smith: Is this my free water?
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: It is.
Adam Smith: You know why I’m getting a free water, right?
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: I do not (cheerfully).
Adam Smith: Because Chick-fil-A is a hateful corporation.
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: I disagree. I wouldn’t say … we don’t treat any of our customers any differently.
Adam Smith: I know (interrupts). But you guys … the corporation gives money to hate groups. Hate groups. Just because people want to kiss another guy.
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: I have to stay neutral on this subject.
Adam Smith: Sorry?
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: I have to stay neutral on this subject. My personal beliefs shouldn’t be in the workplace.
Adam Smith: I believe that too. I don’t believe corporations should be giving money to hateful groups.
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: I’m really uncomfortable that you’re videotaping me.
Adam Smith: (I) Totally understand. I’ll take my water
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: It’s my pleasure to serve you always.
Adam Smith: Of course, I’m glad I can take a little bit of money from Chick-fil-A and maybe less money to hate groups.
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: We’re alway happy to serve every… all of you. All you guys. Anything you need.
Adam Smith: Have a great day. I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here. I don’t understand it. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values.
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: We’re here to serve you in any way that you need.
Adam Smith: You deserve better. You deserve better. Rachel you deserve better. OK?
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: I hope you have a nice day.
Adam Smith: I will. I just did something real good. I feel real purposeful. Thank you so much.
Adam Smith: I’m a nice guy by the way …
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: You are really nice.
Adam Smith: … and I’m totally heterosexual. I’m not, not a gay in me. I just can’t stand the hate, you know? You gotta stop. It’s gotta stop, guys. Stand up.
Chick-fil-A employee Rachel: Have a nice day.
Adam Smith: Alright, see you guys.
Adam Smith pulled the video from YouTube, but another user re-uploaded the conversation on video for debate. But on Thursday, August 2, 2012 CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith was out of a job at Vante
