Fired TV reporter says she’s ‘ruined’ after cringe-worthy rant goes viral

A Philadelphia television reporter who was fired this week after her tirade on a police officer was caught on video said she’s “ashamed and embarrassed” and feels “ruined,” according to the NY Post.

The story began when former PHL17 reporter Colleen Campbell went to the Helium Comedy Club in Philly.

Wil Sylvince, the New York comedian who captured the cringe-worthy episode posted on his Facebook account that Campbell was “disturbing the show with her loud whispering. After 3 warnings and other customers were complaining she was asked to leave.”

“When she got kicked out she assaulted (kicking, punching, and eye poking) 3 of the employees in bar area right outside the showroom and then outside she mock spit in the managers face when a cop came,” said Sylvince. “She verbally abused this poor cop who was trying to keep the peace at first.”

 That’s where the five-minute video below shows Campbell standing outside of the club.

Campbell, 28, lost her job at PHL17 and issued a statement Wednesday morning apologizing to the police officer, “who bore the brunt of my outburst,” as well as the Philadelphia Police Department and her former employers.

Campbell was charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct and was released without bail. She is due to appear in court on June 13.
