Fired TV Reporter: I've Received Thousands of 'Sexual and Violent' Threats: A Philadelphia television reporter who lost her job after she was caught screaming expletives at a police officer outside a comedy club said she is now receiving thousands of “sexual and violent” phone messages and threats.
Colleen Campbell, 28, said she is the one being targeted now after she claimed she was “ruined” when the video of her profanity-laced tirade went viral and caused her to lose her job as a reporter at PHL 17.
“From the time the video was made public, Ms. Campbell has been the recipient of thousands of lewd and threatening phone calls, texts, messages, and emails ranging from angry, profane, and defamatory insults to deeply disturbing sexual and violent threats,” Campbell family spokesman and attorney Wayne Pollock told the New York Post in a statement. “Ms. Campbell and her family are still sorting out the events of that night. Their highest priority is the health and well-being of Ms. Campbell.”
