SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An international honor society and Bank of America are apologizing for a sexual slur used in a letter offering a credit card to a San Francisco Bay Area woman.

Golden Key International Honour Society spokeswoman Melissa Leitzell said on Friday that the group is looking into how the epithet ended up in the letter to Lisa McIntire.

The mailer read, "Lisa Is A Slut McIntire, you've earned this special offer." The offer was a credit card tied to McIntire's membership in the honor society.

McIntire, a feminist writer, tweeted a picture of the mailing to one of Bank of America's Twitter accounts on Thursday.

McIntire told the Los Angeles Times (lat.ms/1cbjDIU) she did not think the letter was personal.
