(CNN)Shortly after being crowned the new Miss Teen USA, Karlie Hay of Texas got her first introduction into the national spotlight.After her win on Saturday, social media users pointed out the repeated use of a racial slur in what appeared to be her personal Twitter account in 2013 and 2014.Users posted screen grabs from what appeared to be an account with her name and photo with several references to the slur.The authenticity of that Twitter account could not be verified and the tweets from that account are now private.Hay, 18, responded to the allegations online, but did not apologize directly in reference to the alleged use of the word.”Several years ago, I had many personal struggles and found myself in a place that is not representative of who I am as a person,” the statement read in both her Instagram and Twitter accounts.
