4. He was fired for being an asshole

 

I'm just speculating here but, when you get to that level of management, you usually have to sign a code of conduct contract which lays out what is expected of your behavior on and off the job.
One of those provisions is don't do anything that will bring negative attention to yourself or your employer, which he obviously did.
Also, when at that level of management, you are usually assigned a company vehicle, he was on his lunch break, so it's quite possible that he was using a company vehicle when he went off on his little rant which is more than enough grounds for termination.
He has since apologized, but he should have known better.
