Fire Britt McHenry

ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has made the news recently based on her taped interactions with a impound lot attendant:

When ultimately confronted with how their employee treated another human being, ESPN suspended her for one week.  One whole week.  In the meantime, McHenry issued the usual non-apology apology:

“In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things,” the ESPN reporter said in a statement. “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.”

How about maybe apologizing to the poor woman you viciously insulted and berated?  How about maybe calling her, or sending some flowers, or just being a freaking human being?

We have all known a Britt McHenry - beautiful to look at, but repugnant in behavior.  Her whole life people have fawned over her due to her looks, so much that she actually now believes that she is superior to all of us.  In actuality, she's nothing but a "mean girl," and likely has been her whole life.  Based on her "apology," we can likely expect her to continue to be one for the foreseeable future.  Thus, ESPN needs to jettison this bully, and fire her posthaste.
