ESPN reporter suspended for viral rant

An ESPN reporter's on camera rant has gotten her suspended today.



Seen in a viral video, Britt McHenry's tirade showed her criticizing a towing company worker in Arlington, Virginia after her car was towed.



"So I can be a college drop out and do the same thing?" said McHenry to the towing company worker during her rant. "Why because I have a brain and you don't?"



The towing company is now praising the worker who kept her cool during the rant, despite being attacked over her appearance, income level and education.



"In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things," said McHenry on Twitter.



McHenry has been suspended from ESPN for a week.
