Video featuring Britt McHenry’s verbal argument with parking lot attendant has recently surfaced on video sharing sites. The video shows how Britt used set of nasty words to verbally attack a parking lot attendant. She continued spewing insulting statements even after being warned about the security camera that was recording her.

“May be if I was missing some teeth they would hire me here.” “I am on television, and you are in a fucking trailer honey.” “I have a degree, and you don’t.” “Lose some weight baby girl.”

Reporter’s car was towed on April 6th. The concerned video surfaced this week, and Britt immediately apologized for her behavior. ESPN has suspended her for one week.

Experts suggest that ESPN took the right step, as the video clearly shows that the reporter tried to take advantage of her position in ESPN. The reporter threatened the towing company’s attendant by saying that she works in television and can sue the towing company.

This is not Britt McHenry’s first controversy. The beautiful sports journalist also attracted a lot of negative publicity when she was tagged as “amateur reporter” by Washington coach Jay Gruden during last season.

Britt McHenry has apologized for her behavior using Twitter. But after reading all the comments written below the concerned video on YouTube, one can suggest that even some of her fans are not happy about the incident.
