ESPN reporter suspended over video of insults to towing company worker

ESPN reporter Britt McHenry  has been suspended for a week after a video was released Thursday in which she insults a towing company worker.

“I’m in the news, sweetheart,” McHenry says on the video. “I will f------ sue this place.”

After she apparently realizes there is video of her interaction, McHenry continues.

“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 video ends with McHenry’s last insult to the attendant:

“Lose some weight, baby girl.”

McHenry posted an apology on her Twitter account.
