If you’re ever curious about whether you’re being recorded in public, here’s further proof that yes, you are.
ESPN has suspended reporter Britt McHenry over a leaked video in which she has an angry exchange with clerks at a towing company. In the video, McHenry insults the clerks for their weight, the state of their teeth and their education.
Specifically, she says, “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me here,” and, “Lose some weight, baby girl,” among other things.
Here’s the video. Be warned: There is some not-safe-for-work language.
After the video went public, McHenry issued this apology via Twitter on Thursday:
In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things. As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake.
