Chick-Fil-A ‘Bully’ Chastises Young Woman Working Drive Thru Window


UPDATE – Business Insider has verified that Chick-Fil-A free water customer Adam Smith has been fired from his position as the CFO and treasurer of Vante, a medical supplies manufacturer. A press release from Vante notes the actions of Smith do not reflect their company’s corporate values, which include respecting diverse opinions. The Vante press release about Adam Smith goes on to state that employees are expected to behave “in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility to others.” The Vante press release about the “Chick-Fil-A video concluded by stating the company hopes the “general population” does not hold Smith’s action against the medical supply manufacturer.

A man being dubbed the “Chick-Fil-A Bully” shot a cell phone video of himself waiting in line for a free water and chastising a young woman who had the misfortune of becoming an unwitting participant in a one of the day’s top watched YouTube videos. The video creator is allegedly named Adam Smith, and has now pulled the Chick-Fil-A “bullying” video, but copies quickly sprang but up online, Liberty News reports.

The Chick-Fil-A video begins as the amateur videographer waits in line for a free water, making fun of other customers in the long line, noting they must think “breakfast tastes better when it is filled with hate.” The Chick-Fil-A video commentary also notes the man’s excitement at getting his free water and sharing his opinion with the restaurant drive-thru window worker – before going to join what he hopes is a “sit in” by college students forming nearby.

The drive-thru worker, with a name tag that reads, Rachel, remains polite throughout the encounter with the man behind the cell phone camera, which was reportedly not visible. After asking if she knows why he waited in line for a free water he proceeds to tell her how horrible her company is and informs her she should not work there.

Rachel, the Chick-Fil-A drive-thru window employee calmly lets the free water customer know the restaurant “does not treat anyone differently” and offers several other kind statements which may have been her own thoughts or a response suggested by management. Rachel also notes she needs to stay neutral on the subject and does not feel her personal beliefs belong in the workplace.

Before pulling away with his free water, the Chick-Fil-A drive-thru “bully” tells the young employee he does not know how she can live with herself and work there. The Chick-Fil-A “bully” does tell Rachel she deserves better than working at the restaurant and emphatically notes several times that he is both a nice guy and heterosexual.

    ROFL! Guess he told HER!
    From 6 figure income to the unemployment line in just 2 minutes and 21 seconds….That's gotta be some kind of record!

    If this guy is married. His wife should beat him to a pulp. Just imagine, how do you explain to your family that because you thoughtlessly abused an innocent employee who can't defend herself, that you got fired for it. How do you teach your children not to bully, when you're a bully.

    Adams was NOT fired for exercising his First Amendment rights by expressing opinions regarding gay marriage legislation. If Adams had simply said, in a polite manner, that he disagreed with Dan Cathy on the topic of gay marriage, I can't imagine that Vante would have fired him.

    Instead, Adams was fired for behaving in an abusive, out-of-control manner in a public place, and then compounding it by having the poor judgment to publicize it on YouTube, obviously without the consent of Chick Fil A or of other individuals visible in his video.

    At this point in my life, I am not in any position to employ anyone, but if that ever changes, I certainly would not want an employee or even a contractor whose erratic behavior suggests that he (or she) lacks judgment and self-control. One of the things you always want to do when hiring or doing business with anyone is to screen out people whose behavior and history suggests that they are at risk of "going postal" and putting you, your family, your employees, your customers, and the general public in danger.

    what an idiot. he probably doesn't feel very important anymore. what's even funnier is he thinks he's standing up for homosexuals, but by going out of his way to let her and his audience know that he's heterosexual he's the one that's showing discrimination towards homosexuals.

    So, he bullied a drive thru girl, who outclassed him by a factor of a hundred or two. He didn't ask to see the manager, who migt have been male and bigger than him.
    He couldn't have written a letter or gone to see executives in person.
    In short, he is the epitome of the liberal cultural-subhumans who attack the innocent If, indeed, they fired him, then perhaps there is a fair and merciful God.

    Big tough man hiding in a car bullying a sweet young girl who remained worlds above him in class and he feels good about himself? How pathetic can he be?

    What Tucson Chick-fil-A was it? Anyone know? Want to send Rachel a card or something to commend her on staying professional and show her support. I know. Cheesy.

    Why doesn't he get on YouTube and offer an apology for his immature behavior. A man his age should know better.
