There appears to be a massive problem with former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry’s Twitter following.
McHenry, who infamously berated a tow truck company clerk, has talked about how her following blew up after being laid off by ESPN because she is “honest” and keeps it “real.” She has become extremely vocal about conservative politics ever since leaving ESPN.
The reason followers doubled is because I’ve been honest. Love or hate, I’ll keep it real with all of you. Thanks for the love (and hate) and follows!

Well, a simple search on Twitter Audit revealed that 92 percent of her following appears to be fake accounts. That sure seems like a far cry from having half a million followers because people love her honesty and realness.
Britt McHenry (@BrittMcHenry) brags about getting so many new followers because people love her opinions.
It appears that 92% of her followers are fake. Only 8% appear to be real. pic.twitter.com/4nFXfgmM1M

McHenry was laid off last April, and I received the news while airborne over the ocean. You can read a rundown of what happened here.
Stay tuned because I have a strong feeling that this situation is about to get a lot crazier.
