Lindsay's comment came in response to a question from Maria Menounos on 'Access Hollywood' about Obama's win in the 2008 presidential race. "It's an amazing feeling. It's our first, you know, coloured president," Fox News quoted her as saying.
The 22-year-old starlet used the offensive term in the interview while speaking of her role on 'Ugly Betty', gay marriage, and cancer research. The TV interview came in line with Lindsay's previous interview with 'Harper's Bazaar' magazine where she denied being a lesbian, but admitted to being in love with her female partner of several months, Samantha Ronson.
