Fallout continues from ESPN reporter Britt McHenry's shocking confrontation with a towing-company worker, Gina Michelle. According to Deadspin, McHenry has a history of rudeness, and TMZ is reporting that "several employees" at ESPN want McHenry out for good. One high-level producer told TMZ:

"She's the worst. Hopefully she'll be fired soon."

But Britt is getting support from a very unlikely source... the towing company whose employee she berated! The company has issued a statement on the matter that asks for her not to lose her job:

"Parking enforcement is contentious by nature. At the same time, neither Gina, our lot clerk, nor our company, have any interest in seeing Britt McHenry suspended or terminated as a result of her comments. As a small business, we saw no benefit to releasing the video except to highlight personal attacks employees in jobs like towing, public parking enforcement and others sometimes encounter. The video was not licensed or sold to anyone."

Maybe the company is feeling a little guilty about its Better Business Bureau rating: F.
