Tolerance Bully ...
While I don't agree with the corporate stance of the Chick-Fil-A, this guy was wrong. Bullying a minimum wage worker that's just happy to have a job in this economy?
I don't support the corporate views of Chick-Fil-A, but, yeah, this guy was in the wrong.
And to top it off, he was the CFO, an executive at a company? Bullying a minimum wage worker?
He got was was coming to him, and I doubt he's smiling much and acting all cheeky now.

Actually, Chick-Fil-A is partly to blame for this. If the company did not make religious based discriminatory statements, their employees would not have to deal with those angry customers. They can have their religious beliefs without putting their employees at risk.
Sure, there should be only civil discussions, but on every controversial issue from abortion to gay marriage, there are nut balls which support certain views.
Here are some of the more poignant quotes from gay employees, many of whom asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation:
"[It's] constantly having people come up to you and say, 'I support your company, because your company hates the gays. It really takes a toll on me."
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

Legally he can do it, but ethically he shouldn't.When you are in a position of power and responsibility, you can influence people, and he is using his responsiblity to promote discrimination.
Everything doesn't have to be a law to be considered a devious act.

Doesn't matter, he was off the job and his performance has nothing to do with Chick Filet. If he wants to be an arse that's his pejorative but to lose his job over this, is nothing short of politics. Not saying he was in the right, because I myself have dealt with it on my end, but for someone to get him fired, it's just wrong.
The trouble is he identified himself and his company in the video which he then put on the internet. Had he not drug his company into this mess by name, he wouldn't have been fired.

It does matter because he identified himself and his association with his employer and the name of his employer.
This is just another GREAT example of a person who demands tolerance not being tolerant. This is no different than what happened in the late 60's and early 70's when the troops came home and people spit on them. Just like the troops, the worker is doing what they are there to do. They have no say in the corporate policy. They are there to render a service which is to take money and hand the product out of the window.
The guy in the video is overflowing with arrogance. This is also another example that people can buy you books, send you to college and you can still be an idiot. Society has told us that education will right all the wrongs. it will make us better. Well, I guess there is a partial truth to that. However, society has failed as teaching the right things. Putting crap into the brain, you get crap out of the brain.
He deserves to be blacklisted as a CFO. It is said that "The truth will set you free". Well, I guess that is correct. The truth that he is a pompous arrogant jerk has set him free from a job.
