Bristol Palin Apologizes for Sister's Homophobic Slurs

11/17/2010 7:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bristol Palin has apologized for the offensive comments she and her sister Willow made during a Facebook war this week ... in which Willow used a homophobic slur to attack a schoolmate.

Bristol Palin Apology

Bristol went back to Facebook last night and posted a message that read, "Willow and I shouldn't have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize."

She added, "On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!"

A few hours later, Bristol posted another message that said, "Thank you supporters who continue to support. The haters are already pulling out all the stops this week to destroy."

Willow has since deleted her Facebook account.

Is it wrong that I'm more concerned with the fact that Willow doesn't know the difference between "your" and "you're" than anything else?

She is mitigating the sincerity of her apology by plugging her sister dancing in the same sentence.

Her fat legs should have disqualified her from DWTS. It's really ugly.

Great, now will biden apologize for his daughter snorting cocaine on camera and will john kerry apologize for his daughter exposing her breasts to the world? Of course they won't because most people don't even know about these other girls because the media REFUSES to cover anything negative about liberals' kids. A 16 year old's Facebook posts are fair game though.

I love how they Palin clan gives a half-hearted apology, then a few hours later re-ignites the whole thing all over again.

The Palin's have very thin skin. Not well suited to be on the national stage.

She is really stupid for calling people with legitimate criticism of her as 'haters'.

A phobia (from the Greek: φόβος,phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared stimulus. When the fear is beyond one's control, and if the fear is interfering with daily life, then a diagnosis under one of the anxiety disorders can be made.[1]

Many DWTS “odds makers” viewers have discovered that certain of its voters had routinely gamed the system so as to make huge sums of money, I suspect a similar scam is afoot here. Just imagine how many computer savvy right wing zealots (eager to increase the odds of Sarah Palin's election to high office) have programmed multiple computers to automatically generate 1000s of email addresses and votes every hour. And, DWTS gives them 12 hrs. to do so! In order to avoid the outrageous inequity that reduced the obviously superior dancer (Brandy) to tears, DWTS needs to overhaul its adjudication process: it should allow the judges to over ride the popular vote when it is so clearly flawed, unreasonable, and grossly unfair. In the absence of such safeguards, DWTS will continue to seriously compromise competitive integrity.
As a juror at international music competitions where the public has no role in voting, I can affirm that mediocrities are sometimes awarded top prizes. More often than not this is due to the compromises that inform consensus and a collective decision. In the case of DWTS, which is essentially a popularity contest adjudicated by the public, the three judges are merely figureheads. They have “no real authority” to determine the outcome. Their role only is to provide droll and entertaining, though informed opinions. That is a great pity, as the victory of a talentless, inartistic, unimaginative and technically incompetent competitor such as Bristol Palin can become inevitable. That is especially true given that Sarah Palin has politicized her daughter's participation in an effort to jump start a burgeoning presidential campaign. Were Sarah Palin a registered candidate, or an elected official, the law would forbid this sort of blatant pandering, just as it did when Reagen ran for office; networks were forbidden to broadcast his films.
There is something sinister and vaguely conspiratorial about this situation that is really quite troubling on more than one level that goes well beyond a family entertainment, and into the political arena. Sadly, it is now entirely possible that Bristol Palin could actually win. If she does, you can be sure that DWTS will be compelled to revise its procedures, lest it lose a large demographic of viewers, and thus advertisers, too, who have become disenchanted with a perceived lack of fair play.

In Bristol's honour, DWTS is changing the name of the show to 'Dancing With The Chins'
