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."

I meant, of course, that she complimented the guy calling him a homosexual, while he insulted a woman, namely Mrs. Palin, calling her a whore. I can't believe you can't see that. And anyway, the guy has since said he knows he went too far and shouldn't have said it.

Levi hardly ever sees the child and does not support him financially. Bristol raises the child full time, alone, and pays for him, alone. Of course she is entitled to go out sometimes, and that trip to this club was clearly part of her tv show, as the camera crew was along, so she was at work. Why do you have a problem with that? The father, Levi, isn't going to step up and take care of his responsibilities, and she is clearly responsible enough to take care of things. Deadbeat fathers like this, do they think some magic will provide for their children, or do they just not care if the child withers and dies?

Another shinning example of a “tolerant” liberal.
Kudos to Bristol for handling herself with dignity and class! The guy who was yelling at her with his limited vocabulary, had no facts to back up his accusations, and good for Bristol for putting him on the spot and calling him out on that!

What a sick and disgusting old man he is to insult a kid’s mom in a manner like a pure Neanderthal. Sorry to the Neanderthals for the comparison. Is he homosexual? If so, then she seems to have the right to be homophobic, if she is, because he seemed to be attacking her and her family without provocation. The W____ word gets thrown around an awful lot by all the Palin haters. I guess just because he HATES her mom he feels it’s necessary to force his opinion upon her loudly enough for the whole bar to hear. He is 47, but acting like a 18 year old punk. It’s a sad commentary on the so called "intellectual" types as he surely is to throw insults. At least his friend had enough of a soul to look embarrassed. And for the rest of the puritans who question why she was out, it’s because she has that right in this here USA even if she’s only 20. Didn’t see any drink in her hand. But I guess that doesn't apply to people YOU don't like. Hmmmmmmm? And for those who think he was right to say what he did, I hope someone does that to you or your daughter some day! Karma!

The entire Palin Clan has a bias against gays. It's a known fact. When confronted in such an ******* manner by some moron, she reverted to the way she was raised. Palin*****e gays.

So you cant say that the Palins H4t3 gays on this website. Lets just say that they don't like gays in the most sincere manner.
