Kacy Sager, daughter of legendary NBA broadcaster Craig Sager, caught the internet’s affection by saying everything there is to say to axed ESPN reporter turned trolling provocateur, Britt McHenry.
Kacy, whose father Craig died one year ago Friday, laid into Britt on the anniversary of her dad’s passing after she took shots at her brother, Craig Sager II on Twitter.
McHenry, who has been in the news for her insults, and not for actually reporting on anything, called Craig ‘Some kid whose only connection to media is his famous dad,’ while arguing with an ex-girlfriend of his on Twitter.
Kacy laid into McHenry on Twitter. ‘While you’ve been busy single-handedly tanking the value of a degree from Northwestern, Craig has kept his head down and built the foundation for a career that will certainly outlast the one you pissed away by being a spoiled brat,’ she wrote.

Don’t mess with the Sager family: Kacy Sager destroyed McHenry in an epic smack down targeting everything from the axed ESPN reporter’s hateful internet rhetoric to that now infamous video of her laying into a tow truck company worker

‘It’s not like he towed your damn car…,’ Kacy wrote, calling back the infamous video of McHenry berating a towing company employee that led to McHenry being suspended.
While explaining to McHenry just how accomplished her brother Craig is, Kacy lashed out at the reporter who has not been actively working since being sacked by ESPN in April.
‘My brother, the first person to ever play football for UGA AND graduate from the Grady School of Journalism, has been a prominent member of the Atlanta sports media for damn near a decade now. I know you’ve been a little out of the loop since basically everyone in the industry stopped taking you seriously, but try doing a little research before you make such an ignorant statement. You do remember how journalism works, right?’
Right after taking a shot at the terrible video of McHenry berating a tow truck company employee- Kacy adds ‘I want to believe you’re not actually this nasty of a person, I really do. That you haven’t spent the past few years exposing your true colors, that this has all been a calculated move to save your ‘career’ by pandering to the hateful assholes out there now that you’ve alienated all the decent, good-hearted people who used to root for you.’
She kept at it, because family is family, and being sent McHenry’s insult to her brother on the anniversary of her father’s death was not going to just blow over.
‘That maybe you took a cheap shot at my brother because it’s easier to invent excuses than admit that you only have yourself to blame for the utter implosion of your once-impressive body of work. Or maybe you really do suck that much.’
And in a final jab at the not actively working McHenry, Kacy concludes: ‘Regardless of the root of all this, you clearly need to spend some of your newfound free time doing a little soul searching. Maybe put your spiraling on hold for a bit and learn to keep your mouth shut when you don’t have something nice or productive to say.’
McHenry’s original tweet calling Craig Sager II ‘Some kid whose only connection to media is his famous dad’
Craig Sager passed away one year ago Friday, and while shifting through lovely messages to her about her dad, Kacy received a screen grab of McHenry taking aim at her brother Craig Sager II

Just in case anyone has forgotten, McHenry’s tirade on a tow truck company employee, that got her suspended in 2015, was just vile.
Her car was towed from a parking lot at a Chinese restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, and the verbal attack was captured on a security camera as she paid to pick the vehicle up at the tow lot office.
‘I’m in the news, sweetheart, I will f—–g sue this place,’ McHenry can he heard saying in the video.
The parking attendant can be heard in the video warning McHenry she is being filmed and threatens to ‘play your video’.
‘That’s why I have a degree and you don’t – I wouldn’t work in a scumbag place like this,’ McHenry responds.
‘Makes my skin crawl even being here.’
The parking attendant patiently replies: ‘Well lets get you out of here quickly.’
McHenry then fires back: ‘Yep, that’s all you care about – taking people’s money…with no education, no skill set. Just wanted to clarify that.’
After a few more comments, including telling the woman she doesn’t have a brain, McHenry delivers her biggest sting.
‘Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?’ she says.
‘Cos’ I’m on television and you’re in a f—–g trailer, honey.’
Finally, before walking away, McHenry says: ‘Lose some weight, baby girl.’
