Death Threats Targeting Bristol Palin, Mark Ballas

11/22/2010 5:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas have received death threats and "Dancing with the Stars" has measurably heightened security ... sources connected with the show tell TMZ.

Bristol Palin Death Threats
We're told the threats began to come in last week, after Bristol and Mark made the finals.  Execs on the show told Mark to stop tweeting because it was inciting people.  Mark complied.

Sources connected with the show tell us extra security will be on hand tonight for the show.  And, if Bristol and Mark head to New York, execs are talking about breaking format and not doing their interview outside in Times Square -- but rather in the studio, where it's more secure.

TMZ broke the story ... a staffer on the show opened a "fan letter" to Bristol on Friday and white powder fell out.  Turns out it was talcum powder, but the FBI is investigating nonetheless.

As one source said, "Everyone is genuinely worried.  This is a dance competition, and it's just gotten crazy."

Interesting...There's so much hate coming from some people here. You have a temper tantrum when you don't get your way (like a conservative doing well in some lame competition). Obviously a MAJORITY of people must think she's doing a good job so far no?. Why don't you unload your arrogance somewhere else. It's just a game show you idiots!

It's a silly dance show with D grade famous/infamous people....with spray on tans, sequins, and bad routines....it's just for fun, show, and entertainment. Crazy loonies on the left of the left conspiracy arena - it's a fake tv show. Get over it. Who cares if Palin or anyone else wins? It doesn't matter? Really, take a deep breath, turn off the tv, and ask yourself - who cares if any of them wins? No one...repeat that.
Justin Beiber won a major music award last night. Honestly, if that isn't enough to make you scream, what will? However, normal human beings said, 'oh gee, that's odd, he has no talent...but, ok, guess that's how it goes........'

OK, the Palins are clearly a strange group. I sometimes wonder where the incest began. Obviously, Sister Sarah is moronic. Todd seems to have no spine, living off his moronic spouse. Seeing Sister Sarah in a constant duel with a teenage high school drop out is priceless. Poor Bristol is about as interesting as a fish out of water. Hard to imagine so much attention being paid to a high school drop out, teenage mother. This poor girl should be in school trying to improve her lot in life. Oh wait, I forgot Bristol is the child of Sister Sarah so I guess education is out of the picture. I suspect Sister Sarah is behind the threats, got to keep the loonies on the path. DWTS is done for so many people after this debacle.

TO NUMBER 126 (POST) --- I have this to say! AT LEAST BRISTOL PALIN IS RAISING HER CHILD --- WHERE IS THE OLD MAN? BRISTOL PALIN doesn't need 'WELFARE' money to support her child ... She is working to raise her 'OWN SON'. LOVE YOU BRISTOL & MARK.

KENNY --- Did you notice how all these 'LIBEALS' can't stay on 'TOPIC'. They have to throw in the family? Sarah Palin's 'ALASKA SERIES' gave TLC the BEST NEILSON RATINGS ... ever! PLUS!~ When Sarah Palin appeared on Saturday Night Live ... she gave the 'SHOW THE BEST NEILSON RATINGS' in over 8 YEARS. What I think is funny. LIBERALS CAN'T STAND THE FACT BRISTOL AND MARK went to the 'FINALS'. Win or Lose ... They can't take that away from them. DO YOU KNOW --- THE PALINS are 'LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK' over the 'STUPID LIBERALS'

Brandy and Maks are inciting things with their fans. They should stop their tweets and inane interviews whining about their loss.

What the Palin's don't get is that most of America despises them.

I wouldn't be surprised if the threats weren't another one os Sarah's sick tricks to cheat.
