CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins issued an apology after past tweets with gay slurs resurfaced from her college days.

The old tweets were re-posted on social media, including by the gay Republican group Log Cabin Republicans,  which shared screenshots of now-deleted tweets from Collins while she was in college.

Collins had called another Twitter user a “fag” in one tweet said “Idk if I wanna room with a lesbian” in another tweet.

She issued an apology when following reports of her years-old tweets from when she attended the University of Alabama.

Collins was dis-invited from a Rose Garden event at the White House back in July after rudely shouting “inappropriate” questions at President Donald Trump who was hosting European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

And last week at a press conference focused on the trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, Collins shouted questions at President Trump about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh who has been shredded over activities during his college years.

The old tweets and the apology from Collins generated a lot of reaction on Twitter.

Some of The Daily Caller’s reporters called out the Log Cabin Republicans for their attempts to paint Collins as homophobic. Before joining CNN, Collins worked for the news outlet.

Other Twitter users noted the obvious hypocrisy in reaction to Collins.
