Teen Vogue's new editor in chief Alexi McCammond has shared another letter to the staff and community to address the backlash she's faced about her past "racist  and homophobic tweets" since being named the magazine's top editor Friday. 

"This has been one of the hardest weeks of my life in large part because of the intense pain I know my words and my announcement have caused so many of you," she wrote in the note which she also shared on Twitter. 

"As I’ve been having a number of conversations internally with the staff and others outside of Condé Nast, I’ve also been watching, reading, and listening to so many of your concerns that you’ve raised. I’ve apologized for my past racist and homophobic tweets and will reiterate that there’s no excuse for perpetuating those awful stereotypes in any way."
