Britt McHenry, a Washington D.C.-based bureau reporter for ESPN, has been suspended one week by the network following the release of a video tape on Thursday in which she is seen berating a towing company worker. “I’m in the news, sweetheart,” says McHenry on the video. “I will f—— sue this place.”
In what appears to be an edited tape, the woman at the towing establishment then threatens to play the video of the interaction. McHenry is shown on the tape responding.
