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? I am homophobic and I don't like gays! No one can force me to change my mind about homosexuality as long as I don't harm anyone! What would you think about this idiot calling her mom a "WHORE"? Motherphobic?

Bristol doesn't need to defend herself for standing up to the filthy, repulsive "gay activist" Stephen Hanks. He is buds with Levi Johnston, don't forget.

It's a free country. If you want to be homophobic, who cares.

Bristol asked him if he hated her mother because he is a homosexual . The heckler admitted he is a homosexual and admitted that this is the reason he "hates" Sarah Palin.
She did not say any wrong to him.
Bristol has a lot of guts to walk right up to the guy. and, she remained calm and cool.
By the way, Obama and Sarah Palin has the same views about gay marriage

Mr. Heckler met Levi in March last year and thinks he’s “the greatest American hero”
Also Bristol’s heckler, Stephen Hanks, is a Trig-truther.

Bristol has every right to say what she wants. This man put his foot in his mouth, and she stood up to him. It takes a big man to stand up to a girl, and then start to get physical. The scariest thing about this, he really does want to kill these women. In his statements, he keeps refering to killings Sarah Palin. When your hatred goes this far, you have a mental problem. He is dangerous, and should be locked up and treated. The next time you see him, it will be with a gun in his hand.

She should be allowed to say whatever she wants to rile that idiot heckler... If the guy wants to make comments like that to her for no reason then she shouldn't have to play to stupid PC rules to avoid offending people who are not involved when getting back at him.

It would be utter kharma if her son -- and Sarah's grandson -- turns out to be gay.

Why hasn't this family gone away yet? They made their money and their 15 minutes is up. Does anyone seriously believe that the majority would vote for Sarah Palin as president. She needs to focus on managing her family.

Palin asked the man with a non-offensive tone if the man was a homosexual and when he replied yes, she asked if that was the reason why he hated her mother. And he replied "pretty much".

he called them wh*res, trash, hillbillies, f*ckin b*tch, satan, dangerous, and asked her about sex with Levi, and he's offended because she asked if he hated sarah because he's gay?

boo fricking hoo dude. seriously. how dare he play the offended victim card.
