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."

@320: You obviously watch FOX "news" and nothing else.

1. Obama said "back of the car." THat is an undeniable fact. FOX changed it oh so slightly to "back of the bus" when they repeated over 4 shows.

2. FOX showed that ONE instance of Black Panthers for 3 weeks on every show and had all you conservatives pissing in your pants over it. Dear God you propagandized moron. Get a brain of your own and stop letting a "news" channel do all your research for you. Start using some critical thinking for a change.

So I guess Jennifer Grey should win with a dance she has already danced to... If you don't like Bristol then you should vote for the other people, If you don't vote stop whinning....Go Bristol..

Bristol, like her mom is always "the victim". If powder was sent it was only for Mark to spread on the dance floor to drag Bristol around more easily. She is not "the girl next door"...the girl next door to me has not spread her legs and become AN UNWED MOTHER! Felt sorry though for Bristol when she said she was not familiar with the play "Chicago". She and sibs have not been exposed to people of color, different sexual preferences, people with money and the list goes on and on. Narrow minded parents do that to their kiddies...Also feel sorry for Bristol's son...with two dumb parents the kid has no chance!

Death Threats? Really? Unless it was from Jenny Craig about that double-chin the bear-cub hasn't lost yet, I think not.

Yes, the liberal/progressive "party" of peace is well represented here. Maybe the FBI should investigate Tony (#15, 16) and many others for the violent comments being made. Entertainment show voter fraud and possibly not being as good a dancer as someone else deserves execution to these lib pigs, but real voter fraud, intimidation, being a traitor to your country, lack of common sense that actually endangers others, and such civility that is so common from the communist left do not rate any kind of punishment. Dealing with the left/communists is like dealing with pigs and idoits.

@339: Civility? Are you for real? You are a vile individual. It is so sad how easy it is to find the Glenn Beck viewer's comments. They all say the same things. Their knowledge of history, and political theory boils down to: "anyone that says something I don't like is a liberal and liberal means communist." That would mean conservative means facists and thus you are Nazi's. If you want to follow the crazy string you are laying out you folks should have every liberal in an oven within 10 years.

@340: You need some serious mental help friend. You need to disconnect from the angry right wing sites and get your wits about you.

As to Bristol Palin: The Palins are a national disgrace. They bring nothing but division to the country and they do it to make more money. They will bring violence to this great nation if they are not stopped. The sane people are taking this country back in 2012. Hold on to your hats folks because the TBaggers are not going to take their defeat lying down. They are going to cause some serious terror. The thing about Bristol on DWTS is just this: She does not deserve it and people are keeping her in to make a political point and in turn robbing people who should be on the show. The next season will be boycotted by so many it will be gone the year after.

Death threats? Absurd. I agree with those who suspect the Palin machine is behind this. Mom hasn't met any publicity she doesn't savor. Daughter is simply a fraud. Teen activist, indeed! Her activism boils down to "Do what I say, not what I do." Wow! Earth shaking!

The show is "Dancing with the Stars". Bristol is famous for being a glorified teenage mom and the daughter of a politician. I am a Sarah Palin fan but I would not vote for her daughter.

It's important that the FBI go through all the posts on this article as I think there are people who are dangerous and capable of harming or killing a person. Maybe not Bristol because they can't get to her but someone else.

Bristol and Mark deserve to win because she is not a professional dancer. When DWTS first began, it was focussed at profesional dancers teaching non professionals. Jennifer Gray is a professional. Regardless of her injuries, she is still a professional. Besides, for a person to have so many injuries, both to her neck and knees, she sure moves around good. She should never have been allowed to participate. The judges have lost track of the origin ofnthe show.

The people voter for Bristol so let it be. Would it be better if the people did not vote for who they wanted to win? Should the judges vote be the only vote? I think so, this would be the best way and be fair to all the dancer.
