ESPN reporter suspended for a week

Posted: Updated:
 Britt McHenry, a reporter for ESPN, is suspended for one week after getting caught on tape berating another woman. 

McHenry was infuriated after her car was towed and let loose on an employee with the tow truck company.  Below is a transcript of what McHenry was heard on tape saying:

- “I'm in the news, sweetheart.”
- “I will f-----g sue this place.”
- “That's why I have a degree and you don't.”
- “I wouldn't work in a scumbag place like this.”
- “Makes my skin crawl even being here.”
- “Yep, that's all you care about is just 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?”
- “Why? Because I have a brain? And you don't?”
- “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?”
- “‘Cause they [the employee's teeth] look so stunning … ‘Cause I'm on television and you're in a f---ing trailer, honey.”
- “Lose some weight, baby girl.”


McHenry is a graduate of Northwestern University.
