ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has finally proved that perhaps she is a hero after all.

McHenry has used her massive amount of fame to shed a light on a rare disease called CSR, which apparently can cause blindness for famous people who berate impound attendants and then get stressed out.

She created a nearly 2,500 word “apology” about her infamous and degrading actions towards a helpless woman at an impound lot, whose only mistake was to continue listening to McHenry. At first I openly mocked her ridiculous apology for being nothing more than a veiled attempt to brag about how famous she was to the world and tell everybody how much life sucks when you work for ESPN.

However, I must retract my former statements because she’s now using her fame to bring attention to CSR, which she describes as, “a condition in which vision is impaired, often due to trauma or extreme stress,” in her piece. Did she silently help all her other celebrities suffering from this disease that you most likely hadn’t heard of before this moment?

No she did not.

Instead she had to remind the world that she was now a hero for shining a light on this disease, and she did it by tweeting, “Happy put a spotlight on CSR. The permanent effects of stress-induced eye damage.” (SLIDESHOW: This Supermodel Might Be The Sexiest NFL Girlfriend)

She also retweeted the Women’s Health Magazine article about how important she is to the movement of helping coddled celebrities rehabilitate from crushing diseases caused by their own actions. (SLIDESHOW: 13 Times Lindsey Vonn Proved She’s One Of The Hottest Women Alive)

So Britt, here is my official apology. I know I said you weren’t a hero, but little did I know what a big hero you actually you were. A civilian might be capable of writing the insane initial article, but it takes hero-level skills to then casually remind the world that you are shining a light on a disease that sounds like a government agency.

The difference between Britt McHenry and the so called heroes in uniform defending America is that real heroes publicly pat themselves on the back to let everybody know. Delta Force operators might be carrying out daring raids in countries across the world to kill terrorists, but how can we know if they’re truly heroes if the don’t tell us? Luckily this is a problem McHenry doesn’t suffer from. She knows when it’s time to let everybody know how much she’s contributed to society.

Well done Britt, well done indeed. You are finally a hero.
