Have you seen this video? ESPN reporter Britt McHenry goes on a nasty tirade against an attendant for a towing company. Britt was upset that her car was towed while she was at dinner. So, she criticizes the lot clerk’s job, education, teeth and weight. Britt clearly believes she is above this woman because she in on TV and went to college. The funniest part is that Britt thinks she was hired for her degree. Bless her heart. That is like saying the restaurant “Hooters” hires waitresses because of their personalities. ESPN wanted to give their mainly male audience some eye candy. She may actually have sports knowledge, but was on air to wear short, tight dresses. I am sure many viewers heard Charlie Brown’s teacher speak when Britt opened her mouth. I have seen a lot of people responding to this viral video with posts along the lines of ‘this is why you need to be careful what you say because you never know if you are being recorded.’ No, you need to be careful what you say because it’s the right thing to do. You should treat people with respect. ESPN has suspended Britt McHenry, but I imagine she will be in the unemployment line very soon. Perhaps, she should have asked for an application at the towing company before she left.
