Not all of the half-million plus people who reportedly visited Chick-fil-A restaurants on August 1st were there to support the company. There were a few folks who stopped by to protest the company. One such protester is Adam M Smith.
Apparently, Adam Smith is not a fan of the head of Chick-fil-A and he decided to let the company know how he felt. Smith sat in the drive through lane of a local franchise, intending to only order "free water" and give the company a piece of his mind.
In the video, initially titled "Reduce $'s to Chick-Fil-A's Hate Groups" - these points are worth noting:
- The college students that Smith sees off in the distance and speculates are getting ready to stage a sit-in, were most likely waiting to get into the movie theater they were standing in front of.
- He tells the young woman working the window, "This is a horrible corporation with horrible values."
- He also goes out of his way to stress ,"I'm a nice guy, by the way... totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just can't stand the hate."
Not long after Smith posted the video on YouTube, it was removed.
However, other web users had already spotted the clip, copied it and reposted it, citing the "Freedom And Innovation Revitalizing United States Entrepreneurship Act of 2007."
We offer the re-posted video for your viewing pleasure.
The Blaze has reached out to Smith by phone and email. As of this writing, we have not heard from him.
