ESPN suspended reporter Britt McHenry after security footage of her mercilessly attacking a towing company employee surfaced on April 16. The reporter is one of several on-air talents to be suspended in the past 12 months, but she’s indisputably the most execrated by the general public.

Even after the employee warned McHenry that she was being recorded, the on-air talent repeatedly continued to berate her; causing many to wonder if she has a stick up her ass. In a tweet posted Tuesday, McHenry revealed she indeed had something up her butt — but it wasn’t a stick. It was a dick.

Less than a week after she blamed her behavior on stress in an apology published to Twitter, McHenry decided to elaborate. “I was stressed out because my boyfriend pressured me to try anal and I gave in,” McHenry wrote, adding, “Anal sex hurts. It caused me to bleed and cry and pray and develop a twitch. And be a bitch to everyone, even that poor woman.”

McHenry’s cleaning lady, Pearl Iverson-Reddingsworth, said the tantrum was out of character for the 28-year-old. “Britt is the sweetest, kindest person. She would never treat anybody like that under normal circumstances. I hope people who have had anal sex will show empathy toward her pain and forgive her,” she said in a text message to a Weekender intern.

McHenry is reportedly utilizing her one-week suspension from the sports network wholeheartedly by sitting upright in a warm bath three times a day to heal her anal cavity and working on a social media campaign to encourage women to say no to anal sex.

“Remember, girls, it’s OK to say no to butt sex. A man who who wants his woman’s stool on his tool is a fool,” McHenry said in a video posted to her Instagram.

She started the #SayNoToAnalChallenge, where women are asked to call out three friends to color their entire ring finger with a black sharpie marker. “Girls, if your boyfriend asks you if he can stick it in your butt, stick up your black ring finger at him. Then when he asks, ‘Didn’t you mean the middle finger?’ you can say, ‘Assmunch, you don’t deserve the middle finger,’ and walk away.”
