Britt McHenry: Making America's Skin Crawl

A recent viral video that shows a very hostile side of ESPN Britt McHenry has been the cause for a series of shaming tweets against the sportscaster. The video that was first released on Live Leak is filled with colorful language that in all honesty is a tad bit on the funny side. The humor doesn't come the mistreatment of the employee, but rather that there is in fact a person in existence that really feels they are above the rest of the world.

 

To truly understand the full non-sense of not just the statements that where made but also the new battle of the "tweets" that has fully broken out, you have to understand the type of journalism that she is referring to. Each day before the broadcast begins she has to wake up and make sure that the make she is wearing doesn't clash with the out fit that she is wearing. Unlike other journalists McHenry knows that the real danger comes not from rebels or war lords, but interns who may trip over the power cord for the teleprompter. Venturing out into the field is something that must be accomplished using nothing but years of interviews from the comforts of a studio.

 

Having a job where you just have to look good and either just read or recite lines that are given to you is a job that plenty of people would love to have. In fact this could very well be one of the very few celebrity freak-outs where there seems to be no one trying to defend the over privileged ESPN broadcaster. The level of disgust that people have been feeling over this incident has lead to people not only venting on twitter but also some went to her twitter page and added that she was able to land her first job because she had all of her teeth. It has since been taken down.

Watching the video you will find a few colorful insults placed in-between the rantings of a child who has had their hand held for the majority of their life. She literally comes off as a valley school girl who is trying to upstage one of the unpopular kids. She even restored to one of the weakest insults that anyone has come up. Resorting back to her college degree as a way to belittle the attendant not only doesn't do anything besides make you look like a clown, its also using something that most people don't use to get jobs any way. With the amount of college graduates not finding the work they need in their job fields, is that really a super great insult anymore?

Now to her credit she did issue a Tweet apologizing for the whole ordeal, and as we all know the traditional ways of making amends (taking right to the person) are too dated for a hip and upcoming sportscaster. If its up on a Twitter it has to be heartfelt and not just something her job pressured her into. After all the real victim is the valley girl whose skin began to crawl for being next to an "average worker". Even with her college degree she still struggles with having to make contact with the normal working class.
