A college professor on Wednesday verbally abused a drive-through employee at a Chick-fil-A in Tucson, and then posted a video of the incident on YouTube.

Adam Smith, an adjunct professor from the University of Arizona – Tucson, described himself in the video as “totally heterosexual” without “a gay in me” who believes that Chick-fil-A is “a horrible corporation with horrible values.”

Smith proceeded to belittle the attendee asking how she managed to live with herself.

“I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here,” Smith told the woman, identified as “Rachel” on her nametag. “This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. You deserve better.”

Smith ordered only water from the restaurant in an attempt to “take a little bit of money from Chick-fil-A” so “less money [goes] to hate groups.”

At one point during the conversation, Rachel, told Smith she was "uncomfortable" with his filming but he persisted.

“People have to have their Chick-fil-A...  anti-gay breakfast sandwich,” he said, reflecting on his decision to order a free water. “Always tastes better when its full of hate.”

A spokesperson for the University of Arizona was not available for comment at the time of publication.
