Marlo Hampton of The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Monday tweeted a letter of apology for the anti-gay slur she used on Sunday night's episode of the show. Hampton wrote, "When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community. My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings towards the gay community as a whole."
