Adding to the list of cable news reporters who have expressed disdain for gay people, homophobic Tweets from CNN’s White House reporter were unearthed Sunday.
“Idk if I wanna room with a lesbian,” said CNN’s Kaitlan Collins in a 2011 Tweet.
“Prologue to Canterbury Tales, you fag,” she said in the same year.
“I get off at 4 fag!” she said in another Tweet.
Responding to the controversy, Collins took to Twitter to apologize.
“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 said.

CNN has not issued a statement on Collins’ Tweets, and likely will sweep them under the rug.
A few months ago MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid’s blog, filled with homophobic rants, made headlines for its despicable content. Reid denied the that she wrote the posts, claimed that she was hacked and filed an FBI report on the alleged hacking. She later admitted to writing the posts and sheepishly apologized. She was not disciplined by MSNBC or the FBI for filing a false report. David Brock and his left-wing operation Media Matters even defended Reid’s homophobia.
Collins’ language might be offensive, but offensive speech is protected under the First Amendment.
Conservatives, though, are pointing out the obvious double-standard applied based on political affiliation. A right-wing reporter who said those words would likely never live them down, a point which is not lost on many right-wing commentators.
“Kaitlan Collins is a ‘Twitter cop.’ She publicly shames people for old tweets. I am not remotely offended by her old jokes about “f-gs” and Ebola, but anyone at FoxNews would be over,” said right-wing pundit, author and lawyer Mike Cernovich.
WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon Claims “Jesus, Admittedly, Was Not Perfect”
Christianity teaches that Christ lived a perfect life.
CNN pundit Don Lemon displayed a stark ignorance of the Christian religion when speaking with host Chris Cuomo in a Wednesday night segment, comparing Jesus Christ himself to the Founding Fathers of the United States. Lemon suggested that Christ was an “admittedly” imperfect historical figure.
“Jesus Christ — if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly, was not perfect when he was here on this Earth,” Lemon said. “So, why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?”
Every major denomination of Christianity has always taught that Jesus Christ was born without sin and lived a perfect life on Earth. Lemon’s claim that Christ was “admittedly” not perfect is wholly unsourced by Scripture. The CNN host has identified as a Christian before, suggesting that Lemon is relatively unfamiliar with the basic teachings of his own religion. Cuomo, who also identifies as a Catholic, declined to correct Lemon on his erroneous understanding of the New Testament.
These are the people whom the corporate media would seek to elevate as your philosophical and intellectual betters- possessing such a vapid grasp of America and the world’s largest religion that they fundamentally misunderstand its basic teachings surrounding its essential figure.
Not to mention, that Lemon’s claim of fanatical veneration of the founding fathers on the part of traditional Americans is a pure strawman argument. Of course the founding fathers were imperfect men, as any mortal ever to live has been.
