Fouled Mouth ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Suspended for a Week After Berating Parking Lot Attendant After Car was Towed … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” (VIDEO)
ESPN SHOULD BE SO PROUD …
A foul-mouthed ESPN reporter Britt McHenry went off on a tirade as she recovered her car from an impound lot after her car had been towed. Personally, I can understand that some one is upset in dealing with a tow truck company and getting one’s car back because it is an ordeal and a pain in the butt; however, McHenry’s personal attack on the individual just doing her jon was completely uncalled for. Advanced Towing has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, but with that being said, McHenry did not have to take her attack out on the employee. The VIDEO, that went viral, showed Britt McHenry going off on the female attendant as she insulted and mocked the attendant’s job, education and physical appearance after her car was towed earlier this month in Arlington, Virginia. Among her insults were, “I’m in the news, sweetheart, I will f—ing sue this place.” … “I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey.” … refered to the attendant as a “college dropout.” … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” … and “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
ESPN has suspended Britt McHenry for a week. WOW, a week? That will teach her. The 28 year old Britt McHenry attended Stetson University in Deland, Florida and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University; however, even though she attended class, it appears that she learned nothing about having class. What is even more amazing is that McHenry was told that she was being videoed and that did not shut her up from embarrassing herself. As Britt McHenry continued her verbal assault on the woman and said, “Why, cause I have a brain and you don’t” all I could think of was I wish the female attendant had said back to her, you may have a brain but you don’t seem to have your car.
The sidelined reporter — who tweeted and then deleted that Advanced Towing was “corrupt” on April 6 — can be seen on security footage nastily explaining why she’s a more worthy human being.
“I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey,” she later says, even referring to the attendant as a “college dropout.”

The edited clip plays like a highlight reel of jabs and insults as McHenry, who joined ESPN in March 2014, attacks the looks of her prey, who is off-camera.
“Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” she asks.
But wait, there’s more. The reporter gets in a final dig before walking away: “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
McHenry apologized for her behavior Thursday after the video went viral.
“In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things,” McHenry wrote on Twitter.
“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.
Taking the high road Britt, you mean like what you had previously asked others to do?
Britt McHenry, the foul-mouthed ESPN reporter who was suspended for her bullying tirade, urged her Facebook friends to be kind and compassionate — just days before she verbally attacked a Virginia parking lot attendee.
“Take the high road and be nice to people,” she posted on Facebook on March 29. “Amazing how a small kind gesture can go so far, yet similarly so can the impact of negative words. Don’t choose the latter.”
