WASHINGTON, D.C — (10-08-18) — CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins is in the hot seat as old anti-gay slurs come out from the archives. The young White House CNN correspondent apologized on Sunday over the comments she made during her college years.

Conservative LGBTQ group Log Cabin Republicans, were quick to expose the comments from 2011 on Twitter where Kaitlan Collins used the word “fag”.  Not only that but she also questioned whether she wanted to share a dorm room at the University of Alabama with a lesbian.

“It was immature but it doesn’t represent the way I feel at all,” wrote Kaitlan Collins on Twitter Sunday.

Log Cabin Republicans posted screengrabs of Collins old tweets sparking backlash, forgiveness and debate over her college year comments. On the heals of now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh being put through the ringer over his High School and College years, conservatives were quick to jump on the CNN white house correspondent for her past comments.

As expected, the responses on twitter have been mixed:

Openly gay CNN vice president of communications Matt Dornic, posted on Twitter that he was “disappointed” that Kaitlan Collins used an offensive word, but did accept her apology.
