New York Giants safety Landon Collins has addressed the racist rants of an Alabama sorority girl that were uploaded to social media, telling TMZ he would sit down and talk with her.

His statements were in response to the ordeal in which Harley Barber was expelled from the University of Alabama and dismissed from her sorority, Alpha Phi, after uploading two videos to Instagram in which she used a string of profanities and racial epithets, AL.com reported.

The 19-year-old freshman uploaded the two videos on Martin Luther King Jr. Day but after coming under fire has since apologized.

"I feel horrible," she said, according to the New York Post. "I feel so, so bad and I am so sorry."

Collins weighed in on the matter via Twitter on Wednesday with a post directed at Alpha Phi in which he cautioned the sorority to be "weary" of the company it kept "for they are a reflection of who you are or who you want to be."

He added that the "Bama football team does not need the support, cheers or high fives of anyone who condones this type of intolerant, hateful behavior."

Collins later told TMZ that he hoped Barber did not mean what she was saying when she made the videos and said he would like to sit down and just speak to her.

"A lot of people need help in this world, and she's one of them," he said, according to AL.com.

Collins added that Barber needed to understand that society had changed and that "you can't live the way it was back then."
