ESPN public relations may have to take a break from reprimanding Keith Olbermann and Bill Simmons and home in on Britt McHenry.
A video surfaced Thursday of the ESPN reporter dressing down a parking-lot attendant in brutally ugly fashion.
“I’m in the news sweetheart, I will f—–g sue this place,” McHenry, a Washington-based reporter, says as the video opens.
The cause of McHenry’s rage is not immediately evident, but McHenry vented about getting her car towed in a since-deleted tweet (as caught and saved by ARL Now) on April 6.
ESPN said it is looking into the matter.
“We are aware of a recent exchange between Britt McHenry and a towing company employee. We are now reviewing the matter with her,” the network said in a statement.
The video, which appeared on LiveLeak, shows McHenry relentlessly mocking the clerk in a nasty attack, bouncing from jabs at her intelligence to insults about her teeth.
“Yep, that’s all you care about, is just taking people’s money,” McHenry says. “With no education, no skillset, just wanted to clarify that. … Do you feel good about your job? So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing? Why, cause I have a brain and you don’t?”
The rant somehow gets more personal as the edited video closes.
“Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh? McHenry says. ” ‘Cause they look so stunning … ‘Cause I’m on television and you’re in a f—–g trailer, honey.”
And a parting shot before McHenry leaves: “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
