Bristol Palin

I'm No Homophobe ...

I Was Just Defending My Mom

9/23/2011 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0923_Bristol_palin_2EXThere's nothing homophobic about Bristol Palin's heated exchange with a heckler last night -- according to her rep ... who claims Bristol was only defending her mom, Sarah Palin.

A rep for Bristol tells TMZ, she "was approached in a confrontational and inappropriate manner when two men aggressively shouted expletives aimed at her in reference to her mother. Bristol responded to the unprovoked verbal assault by calmly standing her ground and defending her family."

As we previously reported, Stephen Hanks yelled, "Your mother's a whore" -- prompting a face-to-face argument during which Bristol shouted at Hanks, "I just know you are" a homosexual.

The rep believes there was nothing bigoted about Bristol's words -- saying, "The situation ended with no incident, and accusing her of homophobia is completely unfounded and totally misstates her views."

So what you're saying is that Bristol was just informing the guy that he was a homosexual in case he didn't know? She was just pointing that out to him?

She's just making it worse by trying to justIfy her original STUPIDITY.

Now would be a real good time for her to shut her mouth & try to learn how to avoid making these immature & NASTY mistakes.

Actions speaks louder than words. The little slut's action last night was clear. The slut has opened the door to get the same treatment as she treats others.

What a monster John McCain has created. And to think there are more Palins coming up! Bristol is a 'ho like she mama.
And the man who told her so did a public service by letting Bristol know that everyone isn't admiring her tired mama ass out night clubbing & making a public fool spectacle of herself. Sarh Palin is vindictive & evil - and she will never be President - there will eventually be a Palin Hour on the Fox Propaganda Channel.

First of, she did NOT shout. Secondly, you really are milking this anti-gay thing to the hilt, TMZ. Are you going to keep bringing this up until everybody agrees with your views? Or do you just enjoy watching people attack each other? Instigating a fight is pretty childish, don't you think?

She asked him if he hated her mother because he is a homosexual and it is a known fact that Sarah Palin, based on her personal right to do so, does not support the gay community. The heckler admitted he is a homosexual and admitted that this is the reason he "hates" Sarah Palin. I don't believe based on what TMZ showed that Crystal played the homosexual card. I don't believe she was putting the man down either. If you're going to hate Sarah Palin at least don't use distortions to substantiate your point of view. And believe it or not, Harvey Levin is OFTEN wrong.

It's beyond obvious that Bristol Palin is homophobic. Statements made by her younger sister that also hint at homophobia can only suggest that the Palin children most likely learned their homophobia from their parents. While the guys actions were crude and inappropriate, I fail to see how his sexual orientation even needed referencing by Ms. Palin.

Let's call it like it is:

Her heckler was a creep (whether gay or straight)... and she is clearly a homophobe.

She should be used to people yelling all sort of things at her. But i never thought I'd say this, but i side with a Palin on this. Although I don't like her mom, Bristol was defending her family. You can bash me all you want, but the family is off limits. TMZ so quick to throw the "homophobic" word around.
