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."

Sarah Palin's creationist views are the peak of human stupidity. To believe the earth is only 6000 years old and that humans walked the earth with dinosaurs must come from a mind that is so ignorant that you can't believe it exists. I have no problem when the average redneck right wing conservative brainless fundamentalist Christian takes the Bible literally and believes this BS but it gets dangerous when people in politics who might get into a powerful position believe this. At the end I don't think the Palins really believe this. They just want to get the votes of dumb conservative rednecks with their creationist views, anti-gay and pro life propaganda. I bet Palin had enough sex before marriage, just like her daughter.

I'm rather ashamed of you, TMZ. You're quick to throw the "homophobic" card. However, you gloss over the fact that Ms. Palin was verbally assaulted in public, simply for being who she is. She did not ask for the assault. She is the victim.

As for her mother, Governor Palin: People in Hollywood, New York and DC are quick to throw stones. However, should some stranger cross state lines to follow them, they are (rightfully so) the first ones to obtain restraining orders against the stalkers. Now the media elite are putting Gov. Palin's stalker on air to promote his "book." That's disgusting.

Bristol was not wrong for what she said. The gay guy started the confrontation by calling her mother a whore and saying that she was the devil. He also said that there was not hell. This is because he does not want to believe that there is one. This also shows he wants to tell her that if there was a hell that Bristol was going to go there as well. I did not see her seek out the gay guy and ask for a confrontation. He was the person that had to open his mouth and insult her mother. What was she suppose to do? If someone said something about your mother what would you do? Why is she the person that is wrong? Maybe the gay guy should have kept his mouth shut and not talk about someone that he does not know. Lets give him some **** for pressing his views on someone else when they were not asked for. If he is gay great for him , but he probably does not know Sarah. Also if you do not believe in Hell why would you call someone the devil if he does not exist? More proof that he just hopes that hell and god do not exist and probably believes in it and only does not want to admit it because of the life that he has chosen. Maybe by saying that she is the devil and then saying that hell does not exist makes him feel better. When all is said and done Bristol did what every son or daughter should do. Lets remember the gay guy started the fight Bristol finished it. The gay man does not like Sarah because of what she thinks and feels. he does not know her and just wanted to make a stink. I would have punched him in the mouth so he should consider him self lucky that it was not me. Or maybe he only picks fights with girls.

Can someone ask this guy if he'd have said those things if it had been Sarah Palin's son instead of daughter?

Wow, I'm shocked that there are this many stupid people in the world. She did the right thing taking him to task. He's such a tool he couldn't even think of anything intelligent to say. It must have been a gay bar because not one REAL man stepped up to the plate to confront that moron. This is part of the problem with this country. He started it, she was defending her family. It's what anyone with any pride would do. It doesn't even matter who her mother is, it's not even relevant. He was wrong and obviously a complete idiot. Next time you see some idiot in a bar doing this to someone half their age, please escort that offender out of the place or bitch slap him. Typical liberal responses on this site. Lame. Way to go Bristol.

Don't worry Bristol, Michele Obama to the rescue! Bullying will be a crime soon and he can have a touch of justice. Apparently, bullying is cool when you agree with someones politics.

Why do homos have to play into EVERY stereo type so predictably? I mean come on...

I wish straight men were aloud to be so sensitive. Oh well.

She should have asked him about how ridiculous it is to believe in Natural Selection and proliferate a homosexual lifestyle. I know that goes over most hacks heads, but the educated will get if they think about it.

Its a laughable contradiction. Oh well.

Bristol, you are knifed-up fake hypocrite trailer-trash. You couldn't even tell the truth about your plastic surgery. I liked you better with your triple chin. And what are you famous for exactly? Having a child out of wedlock when your mother was running for (from, thank God!) vice president of the United States? Is it a first amendment violation to tell the truth? It may have been inappropriate, but the guy didn't lie, whatever his sexual orientation. I agree that your mother would have screwed the country had she been elected, so that qualifies her for the term no matter whether she slept with anyone else other than your secessionist neo-nazi father. Now there...

This is a clear provocation to make Bristol to talk that way. This man is a disgrace. A real man never talk that way about a woman.
What if Bristol would've initiated the whole incident calling the man names?

Bristol Palin didn't ask for her family to be in the spotlight someday. That has to be real hard to handle, daily. That part's only Sarah's fault. However, I hope one day, in fact, I hope, now, that deep down Bristol realizes that writing a book full of lies, making people believe she was raped, because she was afraid, knowing that Levi Johnston, and his sister, Mercede Johnston weren't going to stay down, and crushed forever by Bristol, and her mom was very wrong, indeed. In fact, it's even meaner than what this guy, Stephen Hanks did here. What's more, Bristol, if your not homophobic, by now, you ought to also realize that these days, the subject of homosexuality, is more sensitive than ever before. It's certainly nothing to even joke about, much less lash out at someone as if they're a lower being, less strong than you, in some way, just because they're gay. Not cool at all. Bristol, I doubt if I'll ever believe anything you say ever again.

LOL - If you had came in the room - confronting him that his Mother was something ugly - which - you - though - having some manners & some class wouldn't do - he would be crying BIGGER TIME than he is now - because you had THE AUDACITY to talk back at the creeps -
NOTE: IT TAKES TWO OR MORE OF HIS KIND OF 'THING' TO ATTACK A WOMAN - !! -

the world hates sarah palin...she is a fake, a traitor, and a liar. so is bristol.

bristol needs to learn to unhook from everything and anything related to her mother and move on...keep her mouth shut, as she is a chip off the old block..bristol is just like her mother..except sarah hasnt had plastic surgery on her face like sarah, and hasnt had a baby out of wedlock like bristol...at least we dont think.

if bristol wants her life to work, she must leave her mother and family and unhook, and fast, and find herself, and stop what she is doing..otherwise, everyone will see her exactly as they see her mother, and that is really a bad impression. very sad. so far, she is following in her foot steps exactly.
