She is seen yelling at the employee, who even tells McHenry that she is on camera. She doesn’t hold back, telling the employee she has a brain and saying the employee does not. At one point, she even points out her job, telling the worker “I’m in the news sweetheart, I will f—--g sue this place.”
McHenry issued an apology on her Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
