ESPN suspended reporter Britt McHenry for a week for her abusive comments to a towing clerk. The whole incident was caught on camera and now a trending hastag is #firebrittmchenry.

In NFL news, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been reinstated. Last September, Peterson was charged with child abuse. He was suspended from playing but did not receive any jail time. The judge eventually overturned the suspension and now he’s free to play. It’s unclear if the Vikings will play him or try and trade him away.
