She ain't that good looking, she's kinda got a receding hairline.
Of course if I were a hair on her head I'd leave too.

All that cursing and demeaning pretty much belies any point she was trying to make.

I can understand being pissed at the tow truck company if they were doing a crap job or something. But she crossed the line when she got personal with that cashier.

What really stuck out to me is that she just kept going with her bile...after it was pointed out that she was being recorded and she even LOOKED at the camera. Britt must have thought she was invincible or some sh*t, just because she's a young blond lady working for big ol' ESPN. Hopefully she gets a harsh dose of reality with her suspension.

If ESPN does fire her, she'll probably be snatched up by another network soon enough. Women who look like she does are in high demand in the media, even if they are lacking in the "brains" or "sports & news knowledge" department.

She's a bully. She thinks because she is pretty, popular and privileged she can get away with treating people anyway she wants to and there will not be any consequences.

Middle schools are full of these sorts of girls, but then they grow up. Or at least most of them do....

Pretty much nailed it.

I was almost, almost shocked when I watched the video after reading the transcript in the article that she knew there was a camera on her and still went on a 60 second temper tantrum on this poor woman. Not only does it shows many of the flaws in her character and that she's a complete , but she feels she's invincible and untouchable. That's a huge problem that society lets people like her get away with.

And that's the thing, she's nothing special (perceived talent and looks), but because she's a "hawt" blonde talking about sports, most men will fawn all over her and she'd end up at another network in no time. Sounds like she's been suspended.

That'll learn her.

Oh wow, she just said this recently! there are some hilarious comments on Facebook to her. Some really mean ones too, but some very cleverly thought out.

Also, this lady she demeaned is prettier (IMO) than this Britt. She doesn't have a ton of makeup on. Also, she just lost a sister and was already down in the dumps when this happened.

There's no excuse for such ugly behavior. I agree with those who say that even if she's fired, someone else will hire her if only for the publicity.

She should just get the firing over with so that she can go into her true career fit for her skills: porn. Everyone knows that the only reason some dude at ESPN decided this barbie bimbo gets to play "sports reporter" is because of her T&A, not because of her journalistic acumen.

I am usually someone who is against the lynch-mob social media approach in which the cool thing to do nowadays is getting people fired from their job for silly things...

BUT

What this woman did was pretty disgusting. This wasn't a small joke tweet on twitter (which people have gotten fired for) or just one silly comment that could have been misinterpreted...

She essentially belittled and completely crapped on someone for doing their job in a very vulgar and elitist fashion. How can anyone watch her on ESPN again and believe her 'professional journalist' gimmick when you already know what kind of person she is?

She should absolutely get fired and the fact that she only got a one week suspension is pretty pathetic. People have been fired immediately for way less. I hope people complain to ESPN and they revise their punishment on this animal.

She has a beauty queen mentality and that is pathetic . What skills set exactly does it take to sit in front of a teleprompter and read the news ? what degree does she hold ? I know she is good at potty mouth . I wonder if she kisses her mother with that dirty mouth too ? she should be fired absoloutly . I think Espn's standards have gone way down hill . And who was the moron who hired this lil potty mouth beauty queen ? I think a lot of people think she has a lot to learn such as compassion , understanding and how to be kind .
