ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has been suspended for one week after the release of a video tape Thursday that shows McHenry demeaning an employee of a towing company.

In the video, the woman warns McHenry that she will show the tape.

That’s when McHenry looks straight into the camera and continues to berate the worker, commenting on the woman’s appearance, education, and job.

The reporter shamelessly and unrelentingly slings venom with phrases like:

“So I can be a college dropout and do the same thing?”

“Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?”

“I’m in television and you’re in a f—— trailer, honey.”

And she twists the blade and walks away as she says, “Lose some weight baby girl.”

Though she apologized and can still call herself an ESPN reporter…

The people are not having it.
