Many media outlets are reporting the firing of CNN citizen reporter Shawn Loftis from the Miami-Dade school district after the discovery of his past gay porn career.

Known as Collin O'Neal in the gay porn scene, Loftis was suspended from his substitute teaching position back in January, and his teaching certification was revoked in April.

Loftis left the porn industry in the spring, 2010. After his firing, he did file a case with the ACLU, which failed to get his job back.

CNN is aware of his background, according to Loftis, in an interview with The Miami New Times. He is now making porn again.
