Kaitlan Collins, who previously worked for right-wing outlet The Daily Caller, has served as White House Correspondent for CNN since 2017. Earlier this month the journalist faced backlash because of her tweets from the past being revealed. She was just a teen by then and used hateful slurs repeatedly, including homophobic ones. Now she brings her sincere apologies for her immature ignorant behavior, insisting that she did not think of consequences of her words by then, these words have never reflected her real; feelings to the minority communities she offended, she now deeply regrets of doing so. She wrote on Twitter: “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.” Out CNN exec Matt Dornic said: “I’m a proud gay man. And I am a proud friend of Kaitlan Collins. Tho I’m disappointed that she ever used the word (even as an immature college kid), I can say with certainty it doesn’t reflect her feelings toward the LGBTQ community. She’s apologized and I accept that.”
