A CNN reporter has come under fire after her old tweets where she used gay slurs have resurfaced.
White House reporter Kaitlan Collins was heavily criticized for posts from 2011 where she used the word ‘f*g’ and says she wouldn’t want to share a room with a lesbian.
She took to Twitter on Sunday to apologize for her posts that she condemned as ignorant and from her college days.
‘When I was in college, I used ignorant language in a few tweets to my friends. It was immature but it doesn’t represent the way I feel at all. I regret it and apologize,’ she wrote.
The tweets predate her journalistic career but were dug out from her Twitter profile by Log Cabins Republicans, which describes itself as the nation’s largest Republican organization dedicated to representing the LGBT community.
The Washington Examiner was the first to report those controversial tweets.
In one tweet from 2011 she wrote: ‘Prologue to the Canterbury Tales, you f*g’ in reply to a Twitter User.
In another she wrote: ‘Idk if I wanna room with a lesbian’.
CNN hasn’t commented on the old offensive tweets.
