This question has to do with the phrase "tirade of". Can you say the following: "She commenced a tirade of yelling and screaming at her husband?" Or would it be more correct to say: "She commenced a tirade, yelling and screaming at her husband"
Both are totally fine. If you check the Cambridge dictionary, they have a sample sentence using a 'tirade of abuse', so the first one is definitely ok. It can also be used without the prepositional phrase, so the second answer is also perfectly fine.
I would say that the construction tirade of is more appropriate and commmon with a noun than with a gerund.
