ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Insulted a Tow Truck Employee and Got Suspended
ESPN suspended reporter Britt McHenry for one week, after video of her going off on a parking lot attendant hit the Web. It's easy to see why they took her off the air. She goes full-on mean girl on her victim.
It all started because Britt's car got towed in Arlington, Virginia on April 6th, the attendant Gina Michelle, has been trying to get the media to see it ever since.
After the video went viral, Britt apologized, but not to Gina:
She said, "In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things. As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake."
Gina Michelle took to Facebook to get the word out about Britt and also posted some screenshots of McHenry.
I have the entire transaction on video tape of Brittany McHenry. I have her insulting the dispatcher telling her to lose weight and belittling her for doing her job. As a woman in the public eye and posting on her Facebook page about negative words hurting others, is this appropriate? She parked her car and came back 2 hours after the establishment closed (meaning she was not a customer the whole time) and insulted another woman’s weight. Is THIS ok?
And when I post the video you’ll say I deserved to be called fat. Bottom line is she got towed. She should not have left her car unattended in a private lot to patronize another bar. Be angry or upset, you don’t insult someone’s looks because you think you’re above them.
That's Gina on the right:
