Bristol to Margaret Cho: Here's a Gay Joke ...

12/6/2010 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Someone needs to keep the Palin girls off Facebook -- this time it's Bristol posting an open letter to her "Dancing With the Stars" co-star Margaret Cho ... and making a gay "joke" at Margaret's expense.

Bristol responded to a blog Cho wrote this week that suggested Sarah Palin made Bristol do "DWTS" -- and that Sarah "harshly and openly" blames Bristol for costing her the election.

In Bristol's new post, which she wrote last night, she made her point in a few decently-worded paragraphs, but then decided to end things by saying that if Margaret understood conservative politics better, she "would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert."

Reading between the lines ... KD Lang = lesbian. Indigo Girls = lesbian. Cho is openly bisexual.

But Bristol did say she's willing to let Cho babysit Tripp, so there's that.

Can we stop coddling gays so much? Between Perez taking offense to everything and Glee becoming the "let's celebrate Kurt at least five times per episode" show...I think we need to be a littlenless sensitive. Bristol is a moron but her comment was actually a rather funny and witty comeback.

ANY thing that comes out of ANY Palin mouth is based in fear and ignorance.

You'd think the fact that Bristol lived in LA for 3 months or so during DTWS taping would have opened her up a little since she had to deal with -- gasp -- homosexuals! Instead, it seemed to only harden her homophobia.

Ha! Ha! I love it! Every time the Palins open their mouths, they show their true colors. Keep up the good work. We don't want Sarah anywhere near the White House. Hey, Mr. Sarah Palin should go on DWTS. Maybe ONE of the Palins has a shot at winning SOMETHING.

people that hate the palins, dont you realize how you show your ignorance, especially when you go after the kid's of politicians. so much envy and hate and all because we have different political views, why cant you just let people be themselves without your judgemental and demeaning words. democrats get on the hate wagon all because media "liberal media" influences there thoughts, quit hating and live and let live.

I am a liberal democrat. I do not label Bristol as homophobic. I think the girl is uneducated and unprepared for life as are many other "kids today". It is a sad commentary on the world (especially in the US) today.

The Palins are nothing but white trash run amok. Let's hope they get ahold of a rotten possum and drop from food poisoning.

It's celeb-spawn syndrome. Look at people like Ivanka Trump, Kelley Osbourne, Liv Tyler, etc. They either wanted to be models, actresses, etc. at that age. Their money gave them the connections even without any talent. When they either got fat or discovered as not enough talent they were exposed for the fools they are. Since Bristol has no talent and is fat, she tries to be relevant by I guess being stupid. How many times are the Palins going to claim it's part of the parenting process to correct their children, if their homophobic behavior continues.

Margaret Cho is an ugly lesbian who has a big mouth. If she can say whatever she wants then so can Bristol. I really hope the morons who are always bashing the Palins don't bother to vote they are the same morons who voted for Obama the loser.

Well,she claimed on DWTS that ordinary Americans can relate to her and that's why she's popular. So I guess she thought most Americans would agree with her homophobic comment on facebook and did not expect much of a reaction.

Why is it ok for Cho to say what she has and not for Bristol to say whatever she wants? And HELLO! Watch Two and a Half Men and tell me why their Gay Jokes are just fine. It's a girl fight. Big deal. And to all the Gays out there - own it. You put it out there, make a huge deal out of it, think you can say and do whatever you want but no one else can? Get over yourselves. Homophobe - No. Hate the unfairness of it all? Yes.

Well, I don't know if homophobic is the correct word, but I'm surprised Bristol Palin even knows who kd laing and the Indigo Girls are...aren't they a little before her time? All in all, though, her response to Margaret Cho was OK, except for that line. As for Margaret Cho, I thought her blog was fine, but she should have double-checked her sources. All that being said, I heard from someone who really does know that Cho was the biggest diva on DWTS this season (and one of the biggest in the show's history)...she was rude and made outrageous demands to virtually everyone and hardly anyone liked her.

#60... and #52..Thank you! Shame on you TMZ for making this read as if Bristol was the vilian! You did not bother to mention the rude lies Cho posted about her on a blog. But then that would have not got the votes or the clicks...right?

I wish that the whole state of California could just break off and float away and take it's freak show residents with it.

a long time Leno fan!    

Lack of education causes her to say the things she says. A good finishing school would make a world of difference for that entire family. How embarrassing for her.

Would you shut up with your homophobic allegations please, Harvey Levin. You mock anyone and everyone on this website, but when it comes to taking gay jokes you apparently cant swallow it yourself (pun intended).
