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."

If she was really trying to defend her mother she would have and not made any comment 'homosexuals' it had no relevance to what he said to her. She's a classless idiot just like her mother.

The most impressive thing about this train wreck was that a 21 year old woman keeps her composure while a 47 year old liberal drunk makes a horses-patoot of himself. The fact that she asked him about his homosexuality was to point out to him that he hated Sarah Palin, not because of anything Sarah Palin had done per se, but because Sarah Palin represents an ideal in direct conflict with his own, thus- pointing out his own intolerance and hypocrisy!

Would it have been OK for Bristol to yell at the guy "do you ride your boyfriend like that?"

This was a setup and the guy is a moron. The pr*ck was clearly attempting to bait her into calling him a homophobic slur. The fact that she didn't is proof that she is not homophobic. If ever there is a time to let the ultimate insult fly, it's when someone calls your mother a bitch and a whore. She conducted herself like a lady. I wonder how much Levi and this douche pocketed for this fiasco. It's too bad Levi can't stick to posing naked instead of scraping the barrel for ways to generate income off of the Palin family. The whole thing is disgusting.

Did you get a look at that whiny LA guy who abused her like that. If I were him I'd start a new shop where he'd paint his head different colors for ever engagement and hire himself out as a dildo for gay parties.

Palin’s parents were public school teachers in a small town in Alaska, she loves her country, attends church, believes in family values, and worked hard as small town mayor and the gov. of Alaska and Sarah Palin also fought against corruption . She did it on her own and not on the coattails of her hubby as some female Democratic politicians do and for that she i*****ed by morons like this coward who verbally abuses her daughter in public at a bar.
What did the woman ever do to deserve all thi*****red from left wing moon bats?

So why isn't super mom Bristol at home watching her kid??? She says that's all she does and she is a better parent than Levi. Doubtful.

Bristol handled herself a lot better than the screaming fruit.

I usually cringe when any of the Palins open their mouths, but she stayed calm and let the bald guy show how retarded he is.

Harvey, the man admits he is a homosexual, a fact. Calling Palin a whore is beyond the bounds of decency, and she does not say she is one. According to you and yours, being a homosexual is great. Not many people, except other whores, think being a whore or being called one, is so great. So she really complimented the guy, didn't she, calling him a whore, while he threw out an age-old, ancient terrible name to call any woman. So who is most vile? The man, of course. Think, man. It's clear as day, if you only have the guts to admit it.
