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.

I think what most people have just written here is 10 times worse than what Willow and Bristol said on their facebook accounts. What is wrong with people? I'm embarrassed we can't be mature and not tear people apart based on their physical appearance or family background.

Geesh, I think there are more important things in life than this!

Thank you Bristol. Can you please apologize for you mom too? Calling people who have legitament questions concering your family "haters" shows how mature you really are. What's that saying about apples falling from trees? I guess we can never doubt that you truly are your mother's daughter.

I really think that all of you guys need to calm down and stop acting like immature kids. I doubt any of you guys have ever met her or her family, so chill. You guys are obviously very uncomfortable in your own skin to making fun of some one else. I would love to see all you guys and criticize you and point out all you flaws. GET A LIFE GUYS

Pot meet kettle. Why isn't anyone up in arms about ALL the trash that's been said about the Palin's??? I've never even seen an apology.. not even a half-hearted one. Hmm.. double standard much?!

Actually, most of the stuff that Palin is accused of doing (oh, such as what the poster above wrote, about Palin preaching abstinence to a mostly black audience) never happened. These were urban legends made up by the Obama campaign in 2008 in order to smear an inexperienced Alaska Governor who was new to the campaign stage. The rape kits. The banning of books. They were all lies peddled by Obama operatives flown into Alaska to do opposition research and gin up propaganda to help Obama get elected.

And a fat lot of good it did the country, as one of the most incompetent Presidents in modern times has steered the country further into the ditch that George Bush dug for him.

Palin is wiser now, and knows not to trust the news media. Now the Left, angered at Bristol Palin's success, is creating a new lie, that Palin is organizing computer robocalls to "steal" DWTS from more deserving contestants. All that the Left has going for it is a new series of lies to make up.

As for Willow, she should have known that nothing is private on FB. Her mother is a prominent Republican, so she is held to a different standard than children of Democrats. Bristol, the older child, now an adult, apologized and Willow (probably at the direction of Sarah) deleted the account. But the fact is, this is a 16 year old kid we are talking about who got into a trash talk fight with a classmate at her high school.

Jesus. That's all this was about.

You've got to be kidding me. THIS is news? TMZ has their collective thongs in a bunch over this? Really? Has anyone here walked down the halls of any public school lately? This type of language between kids is so common it's downright pedestrian. Just because they are in the public at times doesn't mean they stop being kids who don't exercise the best judgement all the time. Anyone here who claims some sort of moral superiority like they have NEVER said or thought things like this is lying. Furthermore, how many people would react much worse if their family was being attacked? If you don't like them for whatever reason, OK. But to take your attacks online and not expect a reaction is just stupid bordering on insane. Lots of bad judgement all around in this case. Definitely not news tho. What is news apparently is some people have come to the conclusion that DWTS, AI, and all these 'reality' shows are really popularity contests. If it took 10 years for a good portion of the public to come to that staggering conclusion I weep for the future. Idiocracy is here. Stupids.

In 2006 an idiot nameed Master P lasted 5 weeks too long on DWTS... better scoring dancers went home, but he had the votes. That's democracy. In 2008, an incompetent with ZERO qualifications was elected president... The same people who praised the "will of the people" then, now rip a 20 yr old single mom who isn't as good a dancer but good enough that millions more voted for her than Kurt or Rick or Brandy. Man up and quit the conditional complaining.

The Palin sisters didn't do anything wrong. That's how kids talk and the meaning has nothing to do with homosexuals.

Unbelievable stupidity on behalf of TMZ and the commentators. Ever walk on a high school campus?! You would have a problem counting the f-word seeing as it's THE word used as adverb and adjective in the same sentence repeatedly. The phrase.. 'so gay' is also quite common. Sorry folks.. go listen to the kids today have a 'normal' conversation with each other.

If she was just a 16 yr old on FB talking/battling on an open forum .. I know surprise TMZ.. anyway nothing she did or said would have gotten anyone's attention. She's a kid first.. don't go blaming the parents for everything a teen does.

As for Bristol still being on DWTS.. I thought she'd be off but it was the viewers who kept her there. The judges had her last. Ever think maybe people are giving her credit for NOT being a performer and taking a chance at being under a microscope again. Of ALL the folks, she was the non-performer and most like the rest of us.

You guys are so funny talking how Bristol is so wrong for using the F word and has no class but all of your post are just as offensive. Wow I guess you all came from the same family.

You guys are no better than the people you are insulting. I'm not a fan of the Palins, but I'd rather be around them than 99% of you. You type hate-filled nonsense on anyone in the news from your keyboard, while justifying this virtueless practice with notions like 'people who are famous deserve to be criticized' or 'they are fame whores'.

The fact is, people of all ages make mistakes and, hopefully, learn from them. When will you? Everyday most of you return time and time again to spread the hate that you rail against if it happens to be from a celebrity source. Also bad, are the superficial comments focusing on any physical 'flaw' available, as if to paint someone as ugly. I wouldn't be surprised to find comments like those coming from people who are ugly inside and out. Hypocrites.
