WASHINGTON, D.C. — ESPN suspended reporter Britt McHenry on Thursday after a leaked video showed her berating a tow company worker.
McHenry’s car was apparently towed on April 5th while she was eating dinner in Arlington, Virginia. She later went to pick up her car at the towing company where the confrontation happened.
In the video posted on LiveLeak, the employee warns McHenry that she is being recorded. But McHenry looks straight into the camera and continues to insult her.
Editor’s note: This video contains some graphic language:
The reporter is heard saying things like:
“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.”
“Lose some weight baby girl.”
McHenry wrote an apology Thursday afternoon on Twitter:
