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."

I bet Bristol made the calls herself to draw more attention to herself. She's just as big a famewhore as her lying moron of a mother!

It's not Bristols fault that she keeps getting voted back for another week, it's Americans that are doing it, and now her life is being threatened because of it?? Idiots. It's just a stupid tv show about dancing, but yet the great american people want to start a war by shooting at televisions and sending powder in the mail just because some kid got a lot of votes on dancing with the stars. What a bunch of morons, no wonder the rest of the world laughs at you.

Gotta love liberals and the way they're targeting a child just because they don't like the political affiliation of her mother.

Savages.

And Tony at post #15; quit being a hypocrite. Isn't that why ALL the people on that show (including the judges and hosts) are there? Hypocrite!

A couple things that bother me here. #1 - The show is called Dancing With the Stars and Bristol Palin is not a star.... at all! She's more of a celebrity now after doing this show than she was before. She has a popular Mother but in no way is she considered a "star". She's a typical, self-entitled child of a celebrity. #2 - The obvious... she can't dance. This is in no way a dance competition if someone as untalented as her can actually make it this far, then the show is clearly on it's way down the drain.

Democrats hate Republicans, Republicans hate Democrats, Liberals hate Conservatives, Conservatives hate Liberals, and all the while, the moderate has almost completely disappeared.

One fact remains.....you're all sheep, and slaves to the Federal Reserve.

She is definitely the worst dancer on the show. But maybe the haters should think about more important things. I knew it was a bad idea for the public to vote. Always thought that ruined the show and made it a popularity contest.

Isn't Skating with the Stars on tonight?

Bristol may not be able to dance. But she's sexy as heck, and I for one, certainly enjoy looking at her! You all say "wah whah whah she isn't really a star>"

Yet you all knew who she was before this dancing competition ever started! Get off the politicians sacks please.....
