Update No. 2: McHenry has released a statement

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.

Update: On April 5, McHenry's car got towed when she was eating dinner at Hunan Number One, a Chinese restaurant in Arlington, Va. ARL Now has a screenshot of a now-deleted tweet from McHenry about the incident.

Earlier: A video has surfaced on LiveLeak, showing ESPN reporter Britt McHenry berating a parking lot attendant after her car was presumably towed. McHenry, 28, makes fun of the employee, using lines such as “I’m on television and you’re in a f-cking trailer, honey,” “So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing?” and "lose some weight sweetheart."Here's the video: Unsurprisingly, McHenry is now facing serious criticism on Twitter. Here's some of the PG stuff:

For having an education, you can't look at the camera, describe your job then do something that will get you in trouble. CC: @BrittMcHenry
