One of the 'Survivor' contestants from the upcoming season is catching heat before the show even airs ... for using the n-word on Twitter.
Jessica Peet is a cast member on "Survivor: David vs. Goliath" and the internet checked out her social media, and turned up scores of old tweets where she gratuitously drops the n-word.
Jessica Peet told TMZ ... "I want to apologize for what I posted as a 14-year-old teenager. In no way did I mean it in a derogatory nor racial way. I do hope people are willing to forgive, and understand I was immature and I've done a lot of growing up since then."
