Britt McHenry claims ESPN punished me 'because I was white'

A former ESPN reporter claimed on Twitter that she was demoted because she was “white” and “made too much.”

Britt McHenry has since deleted the tweets, which were issued in response to criticisms from the Twitterverse on her skills. However, the comments were screen-captured by other users.

“I was demoted because I was white & I made too much. First to go,” McHenry wrote.

McHenry, who is now a Fox News commentator and host of “Like It Or Not” on WTTG Fox 5 in Washington, was among those axed from the sports cable network in one of its first rounds of cost-cutting.

She brought up her dismissal on Twitter after being taunted about being dropped from NFL coverage. She was laid off by ESPN in 2017, claiming upon her exit that her conservative views were stifled, and later suggesting those views got her pink-slipped.

In a reply to Deadspin, McHenry tried to walk back some of her comments, saying, “I think there were a number of factors into laying me off.”

But McHenry earlier said she may explore her firing in a forthcoming book.

“Trust me, I wouldn’t make a claim without proof. One day in a book. One day soon,” she said.

Former colleague Jemele Hill, who left “SportsCenter” at ESPN and herself made some controversial remarks, sent a tweet scoffing at McHenry’s remarks.  - NY Post
