When WPHL (Philly) Reporter Colleen Campbell was getting arrested by police outside a Philly comedy club, she told police, “I work at a fucking news station, motherfucker.”
Now she says that she's "ruined and embarrassed."
Campbell spent most of the day yesterday coming up with excuses as to why she acted like she did.
She said she might have been drugged and that she only had one drink. She then later admitted to more than one drink (5), that included a couple of shots.
Her tirade and arrest was all caught on video and it wasn't long before the station cut ties with her.
“When I came home, I called my producer to talk about why I was absent,” Campbell told Philadelphia Magazine. “I didn’t realize a video was out. I found out about it later because HR called me and said I was being terminated. They said there’s a video. I said, ‘What video?’”
“That’s not me or how I talk or act or anything at all,” she said. “I don’t know what to do. I feel ruined and embarrassed for me and my family.”
“I feel awful,” she told the magazine. “That’s not me or how I speak or how I talk or how I was raised. I had to delete all my social media, because I’m getting threats.”
She might as well delete her TV resume as well....she's not getting hired again in TV.
