NY PostA year and a half since a video of her verbal attack on a towing company employee went viral and cast a pall over her reputation and career, Britt McHenry wants her detractors to know her side of the story.

Reliving the moment those “hurtful words” came out of her mouth and recalling each online post that threatened her life or insulted her character make the 30-year-old ESPN reporter regret her “embarrassing” behavior all over again.

In a first-person feature published in Marie Claire on Monday, McHenry tried to soak up every bit of a reader’s sympathy. She related her life story, as well as her parents’, in an attempt to show who she is beyond the ugliness of the words she snarled at a towing-lot employee — who’s glossed over in her appeal for pity. Her blowup has come to represent her, and she expands on the many apologies she delivered following the video’s release and her one-week suspension from ESPN on April 16, 2015.

“I blame myself for all of this,” she wrote. “But the video is not who I am. I’m telling this story because I want people to know the real me, to understand the true story about my upbringing, and how that night changed everything. It’s my hope that someone reading this can learn from it and avoid the same pitfall.”

Oh, please. It’s really hard to feel sorry for McHenry after watching that video.

But the real kicker is when she gets into this in the interview:

It’s hard to describe how it feels to have people dislike you when they don’t even know you. It takes a toll on your mind and body alike. In fact, in dealing with all the stress, the vision in my right eye grew cloudy. I could no longer see clearly; everything was a blur. I went to a retinal specialist, who diagnosed me with CSR, a condition in which vision is impaired, often due to trauma or extreme stress. Neither medication nor time helped alleviate the problem. I had no choice but to start a series of injections directly into my eye to try to regain my vision and prevent further damage. The first time I watched the needle approach my eye (yes, you’re awake for this!), I broke down, halting the process until I could regain my composure. I was a wreck, not so much because of the injection, but because of what had brought me to that point.

Wait, “It’s hard to describe how it feels to have people dislike you when they don’t even know you” ???

Britt, you don’t even know that tow company employee and you dislike her and insulted her. Ask her how it feels to have someone dislike you and not even know you. Maybe she can describe it.

Yes, it is understandable that McHenry was stressed after getting her car towed because that sucks. Complaining about the towing company just wanting to take people’s money is also understandable. But she should’ve stopped there.

If you want your life to be less stressful so you don’t lose your eyesight, maybe don’t insult people like that.

It’s fine that McHenry is taking the blame and admitting she was wrong, but it’s difficult to feel bad for her because she had to be awake while a needle was injected into her eye.
