Adam Smith gets free water at Chick-Fil-A to confront employee, loses job and no apologizes VIDEO

Here’s one of the documented incidents in the “Chick-Fil-A” standoff as a man videotapes his order of a free water from Chick-Fil-A and his confrontation with the employee at the window. Adam Smith staged this entire stunt, putting his interaction with the employee (Rachel) on YouTube. He pulls forward at 1:15 in the video

“You know why I’m getting a free water, right?… Because Chick fil-A is a hateful corporation.”

The lady tries to explain her point of view, the man talks over her and tells her the “company gives money to hate groups.”

“I have to stay neutral on the subject,” the employee tries to say. “My personal beliefs shouldn’t be in the workplace.”

She then tells the man, “I’m really uncomfortable that you’re videotaping me.”

Smith continues.

As the employee tries to politely hand the man his water, he says, “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.”

The man then pats himself on the back, saying “I just did something really good. I feel purposeful.”


This Tucson, Arizona executive is now out of a job.

The Arizona medical manufacturing firm didn’t care for the man’s antics, asking him to take it down off of YouTube (but which lives on, because nothing on the Internet ever dies) and issuing this statement:

“We obviously found it very disturbing,” said the company’s CEO, who says his business has no stance on the same-sex marriage issue. “We respect everybody’s ability to share their opinions in the public square and we have a very diverse workforce with a diverse set of opinions. We expect employees to behave in a professional manner that’s commensurate with their positions, and discuss their opinions in a civil fashion. … We thought what he did was inappropriate.”
