The ESPN diva who went on an ugly tirade against towing company clerk that went viral Thursday has been suspended for a week and issued a public apology via Twitter.
But Advanced Towing, the company that recorded her rant, is no angel either.
Britt McHenry, the sports network’s blonde bombshell, posted this tweet late Thursday afternoon.
In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and (cont) http://t.co/Wx37XF2QtM

The “insulting” things McHenry said, including disparaging remarks about the clerk’s weight and dental drawbacks, were in an edited video has been viewed countless times on the Internet.
ESPN issued its own statement Thursday.

Now, it turns out, that even in a business as unpopular as towing, the company McHenry was dealing with stands out.
According to The Big Lead, Advanced Towing in Arlington, Va., has an “F” grade with the local Better Business Bureau, with 40 customer complaints filed in the past three years, only three of them resolved.
Some of its Yelp! reviews are pretty scathing, too, even by towing company standards. “Rat bastards,” “scum of the earth” and “these guys should be shut down” are pretty representative, along with allegations of intimidation and potentially questionable billing practices. (The company also has some 5-start reviews that are obviously posted by pranksters. Who gives a towing company a 5-star review for anything?)
Granted, the McHenry video was clearly edited, and the viewer has no idea what the beauty might have been responding to when she belittled a woman who was apparently less physically gifted than she is, but the skin-crawling arrogance comes through loud and clear.
Nobody likes their car getting towed, and nobody likes the company that tows them, but insufferable, conceited snots are even worse.
