It was an ugly exchange – and it was all caught on video.

ESPN reporter Britt McHenry wasn’t happy when her car was towed on April 6, and she apparently took out her anger on the parking lot attendant.

Unfortunately for McHenry, the tirade was all caught on video. The video was posted online and went viral on Thursday.

In the minute-long video, a clearly annoyed McHenry is heard saying “I’m in the news, sweetheart. I will f–––ing sue this place.”

“Do you feel good about your job?” McHenry says. “So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing?”

Then, McHenry gets more personal. “Maybe if I was missing some teeth, they would hire me, huh?” And the parting shot: “Lose some weight, baby girl.”

The video was uploaded online and quickly went viral.

The video may cause some career troubles for McHenry: Her employers are now involved. “We are aware of a recent exchange between Britt McHenry and a towing company employee,” ESPN told PEOPLE in a statement. “We are now reviewing the matter with her.”

Two hours later, ESPN released a second statement. “Britt McHenry has been suspended for one week effective immediately.”
