ESPN suspends Britt McHenry after parking lot tantrum video goes viral
Keith Olbermann and Bill Simmons aren't the only ESPN personalities getting in trouble these days.
Washington D.C.-based ESPN bureau reporter Britt McHenry was recently caught on camera chewing out a female tow lot employee.
Following the release of the security camera footage on Thursday, ESPN has suspended McHenry for one week.
The video shows McHenry verbally berating a woman behind the counter as she attempts to get her car out of an impound lot in Arlington, Virginia.
"I'm in the news, sweetheart," says McHenry on the video. "I will f------ sue this place," she says before going on (and on and on):
"I wouldn't work in a scumbag place like this," she says. "That's all you care about, taking people's money. With no education, no skill set, just wanted to clarify that. Do you feel good about your job?... So I can be a college dropout and do the same thing?... Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?... I'm in television and you're in a f------ trailer, honey."
The towing company has since fired back, saying they are proud of the way their employee handled the attack and that they strive to hire workers like her who can 'keep their cool.'
'It was nasty evil stuff ... now people can see what really happened,' they said in a statement.
McHenry posted a response on Twitter apologizing for her actions and for 'letting her emotions get the best of her' in a stressful moment:
