Britt McHenry suspended by ESPN for ‘insulting’ video

SHARE Britt McHenry suspended by ESPN for ‘insulting’ video

Britt McHenry is a reporter for ESPN. Her job is to speak to the camera. But not like this.

It seems McHenry’s car was recently towed in Virginia. When she went to retrieve it, she gave the attendant an earful. All of it was caught on surveillance video. McHenry’s comments are indefensible, but it should be noted the tape was edited.


McHenry has been suspended one week by ESPN. She issued this apology:

“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.”
