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."

Fredo said, "Bristol may not be able to dance. But she's sexy as heck, and I for one, certainly enjoy looking at her!"

I fail to see what's sexy about a fat teenager, that can't dance, waddling across the floor!

If you people dont care about sarah palin or her family then why do you to the time to comment. I would just like to know because i dont understand the mental process in which you think.She doesnt do anything and she will never become president so who cares. Personally I think she is kinda sexy myself but wouldnt vote for her if it was her and the stick. Women shouldnt ever be president plain and simple. God we need a George Washington president instead of Obama, Palin,Palosi and half the idiots that run for that job. We need to hold people to higher standards and live by those higher standards. Its ok to not like someone but some of you people just say stuff just to incite bitterness and hatefulness and its really pathetic. Not like Sarah Palin is telling you, you cant live your life and i bet half of you couldnt give me a reason for why you hate her except for you heard something on the news.

Oh wheels.....your dogged loyalty to the democratic party causes you to be ignorant. It's OK bud. It's probably a rarity that you ever get laid.

But I take no shame in saying that if presented with the opportunity, I would hit that ars of Bristol's REPEATEDLY!

ISSUE: All the Republicans and Tea Party members blame our outrage and disdain for this young woman on politics. They pull out the liberal label and go on and on...

FACT: She isn't famous and cannot dance. That's it. Can you finally grasp that? It's just this simple!!!

Past that, her mother and her party have coached people how to vote fraudulently. I've seen posters on Tea Party websites boasting on how they did it. 300 votes in 3 hours one patted herself on the back for....That's the aspect that made this political. The fraud committed by Tea Party members.

LMAO JLS... Between posting on TMZ constantly and browsing "tea party" sites, when do you have time to practice law??? You do claim to be a lawyer, well, at least on the internet.

She's a fat, ugly homophobe with no talent whatsoever, except maybe stuffing her pie hole.

Actually, Harvey and his hatred for all things Palin has helped bring some whacko wingnt out from under their rock.
Shame on you Harvey... stick to the gossip and quit trying to push your veggie eating, liberal views onto others.

Are you people for REAL, it's only a dance completion that has been fixed for years so that the one they the producers wants stays on and wins..... Do you really think that the public picks the winners every week..............The one who get the most veiwers to watch are the ones that stay on.Right now that is the Palin girl and Jennifer Grey.

There are some really sick and dumb at a rock people
on this story.


SO MUCH HATE for nothing absolutley NOTHING.

oh please she sent that **** to herself. She isn't going to win unless she gets the sympathy vote.

Just like her mom, trying to get a position she ain't even remotely qualified for.

Listen haters, she is NOT fat. She's not exactly toned or rail thin, but I happen to like a little meat on the bones of the women I take home.

Some of you might call her fat, some of you might call her ugly. ALOT of you do so based SOLELY on who her mother is, which speaks to the sad state of this country, because Bristol has never done anything wrong except for have a baby by a complete d bag of a guy, which seems to happen to alot of you women.

But point blank, I think the girl is sexy, and I CERTAINLY would NOT kick her out of my bed!
