According to NBC Sports, “ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has been suspended by the network [for one week] for a nasty and bizarre tirade against an attendant for a towing company.
“McHenry, who was at the center of a controversy last season when Washington coach Jay Gruden called her reporting “amateurish,” verbally attacked a woman who works for a company that towed McHenry’s car.”
Here’s our earlier item:
A reporter for ESPN apologized today after a video went viral that showed her giving a hard time to a towing lot attendant. USA Today reports that Britt McHenry took to social media to offer an apology.
McHenry sent out this message today: “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.”
The video, which you can see below, shows McHenry insulting the lot attendant, including accusing the woman of having “no education, no skill set,” and adding, “I have a brain and you don’t.”
McHenry, who’s based in Washington, D.C., is quoted by USA Today saying on the video: “I’m in television and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey.”
An ESPN spokesman said the network was reviewing the matter with McHenry.
Here’s the clip, which carries a warning for harsh language:
