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."

This show is no different than others like American Idol. When you have people calling in votes, sometimes the wrong person is ejected from the show and some with limited talent gets to stay. Remember Sanjya? As for death threats, there are a whole world full of idiots who feel people should die for the oddest reasons. It's crazy, but these people live all around us and you would never suspect the person next door. But they are there.

Death threats... poor kid.

It is and always has been the favorite dancer, not the best dancer. That's what Americans voting is and has always been about. So by over-reacting about who's in the finals, ripping Bristol and sending death threats to she and her partner, people spreading the hate have just energized a lot of decent Americans to pick up the phone for Bristol. Frankly, if Kyle and Jennifer split Brandy's voter base and Bristol's fan base expands, she definitely could win.

I'm not a fan of Miss Palin, yet, I'm truly impressed by her
resiliency and fortitude.

For ANYONE to resort to de facto acts of TERRORISM against
Miss Palin, Mr. Ballas, and yes, "Dancing with The Stars",
is a shameful and indefensible display of PURE Anti-Americanism.

I'm neither "Conservative" nor "Liberal", and it is these type
of spineless and foul tactics, which verify the sheer
absurdity and divisiveness of the "American" political-party system. Oh, and GO BRISTOL AND MARK!

Finally liberals want somebody to be judged by merit. I figured since Bristol is "dancing-ly challenged" that she would obviously merit special consideration by lowering the standards on the good dancers. Because why should the people who have won life's dancing lottery by excelling at their craft win all the dance trophies?

DWTS is right, it is a dance competition. However, if they call it a dance competition why is Bristol stil there. What an outrage.

You dumb a$$es complaining, it's Dancing WITH the stars not Dancing Stars. Fricken morons get a life. The Kardashians are just as worthless so why are they making millions?

I don't think saying how she looks totally out of place on the medium of TV because she is not photogenic, fat, ugly, not talented, etc. can be considered hate. It's the truth and valid comment for someone who has put themselves in the public eye. People who call this hateful have the same IQ as those college students in RI chasing that idiot from Jersey shore.
