Things haven’t gone too well for the former CFO who criticized Chick-fil-A in a video he posted on YouTube.

Unable to find lasting work, 37-year-old Adam Smith is living on food stamps with his wife and four kids in the RV they call home, he tells ABC News. “I think people are scared,” Smith says of potential employers. “I think people are scared that it could happen again.”

Back in the summer of 2012, as thousands of people were opposing Chick-fil-A’s stance on gays, Smith rolled into a Chick-fil-A drive-thru for a free glass of water and slammed the female attendant: “Chick-fil-A is a hateful corporation,” Smith told her as the filmed the exchange. “I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here. I don’t understand it.”

Smith posted the video before returning to work at Vante, a Tucson-based medical manufacturer — and the proverbial you-know-what had hit the fan by the time he got there.

The receptionist told him “the voicemail is completely full, and it’s full of bomb threats,” he says. Fired that day, Smith lost his $200,000 salary and more than $1 million in stock options. He and his family moved to Portland, where he got a CFO job, but lost it two weeks later when they realized who he was.
