    Ex-CFO who criticized Chick-fil-A reportedly now on food stamps after outcry

    Published March 27, 2015




    A CFO who drew widespread condemnation after berating a Chick-fil-A employee in a video that went viral three years ago is out of work and on food stamps, according to a published report.

    Adam Smith, 37, was the CFO of a medical device manufacturer in Arizona until the summer of 2012, when he started protested Chick-fil-A's stance on gay marriage to an employee at a drive-thru.

    “Chick-fil-A is a hateful company,” Smith told the employee. "I don’t know how you sleep at night,” Smith adds at another point. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values.”

    After the employee, who never loses her composure, wished Smith a nice day, he responded, “I will. I just did something really good. I feel purposeful.”

    Since then, Smith was fired from his job, and his wife and four children lost their home. The family was forced to sell and give away their possessions and move into an RV. He is now on food stamps, he says.

    “I don’t regret the stand I took, but I regret… the way I talked to her,” he told ABC News' “20/20.”

    that's a weird story

    don't like some chicken place so attack the poor girl who hands you the chicken and then lose your job over it

    maybe he coulda just given them a bad review on the internet and bought kfc instead?

    I'm torn here.

    I feel bad for anyone in the dumps... But why would I feel bad for this guy and not for the guy that loses his entire career for saying a word ?

    So... Fuck him

    This guy is a fool - what a shocker that no one is looking for a C-level executive who hassles fast food employees at a drive through and posts the video online. At least this story may help him sell a few more copies of the book he's pimping about his experience.

    The guy is living in a camper? What?

    There are plenty of jobs out there. WTF is he doing in a camper?

    The unemployment rate for white guys with decent college degrees is probably around 2%.

    BTW, every time I visit a Chik-Fil-A, the staff is as polite and kind as the best restaurant I've ever visited. They are 100% quality people.

    Sounds good. He's probably done many stupid things to get to where he is now.

    In all candidness, the leadership at Chik-Fil-A probably would offer him a decent job.

    Those pesky Christians have a way of doing good things, even with people who've treated them badly.

    I remember some guy was abusing a 15 year old worker at McDonalds, and some guy sucker punched him and dragged him outside. Was funny
