    ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Berates A Towing Company Employee [Updates]
    4/16/15 2:00pm
    Samer Kalaf

    A video has popped up on LiveLeak of a woman who appears to be ESPN reporter Britt McHenry dressing down a towing company employee, making fun of the woman’s features, and using the “do you know who I am?” argument.

    It’s unclear what exactly made the woman who looks like McHenry so mad, but she is furious. At one point, she looks directly at the security camera. Some select quotes:

    “I’m in the news sweetheart, I will fucking sue this place.”

    “So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing?”

    “I’m on television and you’re in a fucking trailer, honey.”

    “Lose some weight, baby girl.”

    Update (2:14 p.m.): On April 6, McHenry tweeted about getting her car towed in Arlington, Va., while she was eating dinner. The original tweet’s deleted, but an ARLnow article preserved it.


    Update (3:43 p.m.): When asked for comment, a spokesperson for ESPN said, “We are aware of a recent exchange between Britt McHenry and a towing company employee. We are now reviewing the matter with her.”


    Update (4:24 p.m.):
    McHenry has apologized:

    Update (4:56 p.m.): The parking lot attendant was actually an employee at a towing company. The headline and text has been corrected to reflect this fact.


    Update (5:09 p.m.): ESPN has suspended McHenry for one week.

    She said she let her emotions get the best of her in a high-stress situation or something like that -- there is a difference between being emotional and berating and belittling another human being.

    Trash personified. I guess her degree didn't stop her car from being towed either.

    She's a bitch, but I kind of understand where she's coming from. When I lived in DC those mother fucking tow trucks were predatory vultures. They are horrible, scum of the earth. They watch and wait in areas where the street signs are totally confusing. They have your car, they don't care and basically tell you that you have to pay up and take it up with the courts. Oh, and if they tow you after 5:00 they charge you after hours fees and an additional day.

    When I was living here in California, I was in a car accident and left the scene in an ambulance. When I finally got out of the ER that night, I went to get all my stuff out of my totaled car. They removed my car from the scene, totally unauthorized. My SO called our own tow truck, but these guys show up and just took my car. When I got to the tow yard, across the county, they made me pay $500 for the car just to get my personal items out of the car. They said that was the cost of the tow and storage for one day,since it was after midnight. They then went on to charge my insurance another $1000 for towing and storage.

    So, I say insult away. I hate these fuckers.

    proof that female celebs can be just as much of a big jerk as male celebs.

    seriously, what a raging elitist to play the "I'm better than you because I'm beautiful and on TV!" card.

    I know that tow truck companies are a necessary evil, but it's not necessary to be THAT evil.

    I want to see the whole video first. The towing company has many complaints filed against them. The tow company has been shopping the video for a the last few days and admits it has been edited. The other person with Britt is stating the two driver was very rude and started the trash talk. Personally I do believe it would have been better to take the high road, ignore the bitch driver, pay the fees and then file a complaint.

    Agreed. She's got a history of acting like an entitled bitch on twitter apparently. Yeah, the towing place might be shit with terrible customer service, but really? McHenry went above and beyond in being rude and unpleasant.

    When my snowflake had her first accident I told the tow guy where to take her car. He took it back to his tow yard instead and I had to pay an extra $100 to get it to the body shop. I don't trust any of them.

    I don’t blame her so much for losing her temper, but it's the way she lost her temper that bothers me. She went the classic teen girl bully route and made it about 'lose some weight' and 'I am so much better than you'.

    Yes, if there is one thing that we have never done here, it's insult someone for some physical flaw!!!

    I agree she handled it badly but the tow truck driver was a cunt too. The "lose some weight" comment was in response to "touch up your roots doll." Seems they were pretty evenly matched, but the tow company owns the video and has released only what they want the public to see. LOL

    There was absolutely no need for her to resort to personal insults. If she had a problem with the towing company, she should have stuck to complaining about that. Whether the cashier has a college education or all of her teeth has nothing to do with her car being towed.
