A video of ESPN reporter Britt McHenry surfaced earlier today showing her berating an employee of a tow company. ESPN has now announced that effective immediately, McHenry has been suspended for one week.

According to a recent article from arlnow.com, which includes a tweet from McHenry that appears to be referencing to her being towed while at dinner, the same company that towed McHenry has towed a car with children inside, as well as towed food delivery vehicles off of private property.


McHenry is just one in a long line of ESPN talent to be slapped with suspensions. Keith Olbermann was recently suspended for a week after calling Penn State’s annual pediatric cancer fundraiser “pitiful.” Stephen A. Smith was also suspended for a week after legitimizing domestic violence. Tony Kornheiser was suspended for two weeks after calling a coworker’s outfit “horrifying” on air. Rob Parker not only got suspended for 30 days for calling Robert Griffin III a “cornball brother,” but also did not get his contract renewed by ESPN when it came up for renewal. McHenry has offered an apology out on Twitter, stating that in a stressful moment she allowed the emotions to get the best of her and that she will learn from this mistake.

Breitbart reached out to ESPN for more information about their knowledge of the timing of the incident and is still awaiting comment.
