A Florida man who went on an abusive tirade at a Costco after an elderly woman asked him to wear his mask has been fired from his insurance job.
Daniel Maples, whose outburst in the Fort Myers store on June 27 was caught on a viral video posted online Monday, was a leading sales agent at Ted Todd Insurance.
The insurance agency tweeted on Tuesday that Maples’ behavior was not in line with ‘company values’ and that he had been ‘terminated’.
‘Threatening behavior and intimidation go against our core mission to be trusted advisors in our community,’ wrote the agency’s CEO Charley Todd in a follow up tweet that promised the company would follow up with a review of its internal culture.
