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."

as much as i despise the palins, the mans rant was totally uncalled for, and who among us would react in the way that she did if put in the same situation.

Hahaha this guy proves how bigoted he is by claiming she "probably" is a racist homophobe, even though she didn't say a thing about race. Her mom banged Glen Rice so she is not a racist. She just hates ****.

Wasn't the heckler the lead singer of 90s Right Said Fred? For some reason it seems this was staged if it wasn't than that guy is a complete moron for being inappropriate and disrespectful. I would have questioned his sexuality also.

Bristol Palin for President in 2012! Have you ever seen a better debate? She took on ignorance calmly, got right to the facts calling it like it was and then let the idiot go on ranting to prove to everyone who was the smart one in the room.

A 47 year old "man" verbally attacks a young woman because he doesn't like her mother?
Bristol has a lot of guts to walk right up to the guy. and, she remained calm and cool.
She restrained herself from such usage which is to her credit.

By the way; ever notice they never have a solid reason why they hate Palin? They just spew hate.

Way to go Bristol!!! I'm sick of having to defend my stand on homosexuals too! It's wrong & I'm getting pretty fed up with it being pushed on to the public as if it were an every day normal practice. Get a life people!!! Go Bristol!!

I watched the video and didn't think she was shouting at all. I believe he acted like a jerk. He was nasty and rude. Her mother is not a whore -- but he is an a$$.

I can't stand the Palins but thought the guy in the bar was a **** by provoking her — however — the Palins have made themselves targets and not sure why BP asked if he was a 'homosexual'. They have plenty of fame and money but at what cost. She can't even hump a mechanical bull without being harassed.

Bristol is not "homophobe"; she only asked the guy if he was a homosexual (he is ) , because a lot of gays oppose her mom, because of the gay marriage issue.

Anyway , Obama and Sarah Palin has the same views about gay marriage.

Why exactly is she in LA? Doesn't she have a kid at home to take care of as a single underaged mother?

The Palin family is trash, up there with the Kardashians and Lohans. Lets all celebrate a girl getting knocked up before her 18th birthday. Another reality show noone will watch.

I love you hate filled lefty morons commenting here.

This heckler is a KNOWN left-wing hatemonger. He's been trashing the Palins constantly for over a year on Twitter. This was likely a set up deal, probably by TMZ.

Anyhow, it's telling how much hate you losers have for someone you don't even know.

You think she hates gays? You're idiots.

One of the very first things Sarah Palin did as Governor was veto a bill that would have denied rights to same sex couples.

Many prominent gays support Sarah Palin. Not the hate filled loons that hang around here, real people.

Tammy Bruce is one of her biggest supporters.

So are the boys in Chicago's "Boys Town" over at HillBuzz.

Hell, the California chairman for Organize4Palin is gay. He's also one of the top Organize4Palin leader out of the 50 states.

Face it, you people are ignorant, and ate up with mass stupidity. You don't have the ability to even think for yourselves.

You don't even know why you hate Palin. You just do because someone else told you to. You're no better than sheep. How pathetic of a life is that.
