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."

Hey.... the great TMZ.... how about listening to the audio before you write you stories... Bristol came up to him and asked him if he hated her mother because he was a homosexual... she did not call him one, she stated a FACT... and guess what? he answered Yes, that is why he hated Sarah Palin... and then his brain started working and he asked her how she knew he was a homosexual.
So screw off with the spinning of what she said... listen to the audio.

AND ..... how about this? Poor little drunk gay guy knows Levi Johnston... how do you defenders of this jerk off explain that one?

She's just plan ignorant if she doesn't know how to defend her mother without stooping to the level of the heckler, or without being homophobic. Says a lot about Alaska's education system and the teenager that spread her legs and pushed out a fetus while unwed. You need to go back to Alaska hillbilly. You don't have enough intelligence for the real would (every where outside Alaska)
Also, is the behind-the-scenes of your plastic surgery going to be on your awful reality show that you did because you are too stupid for a real job? (Like your mother)

Sick of all the lousy comments about the Palins, regardless, whether you like them or not-wrong-is wrong.

Joe McGinniss’ no-holds-barred biography has not one iota of anything to back his spewing forth of nothing but garbage. Who ever believes any of it is just plain stupid.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

One good slander deserves another. If people don't like being questioned about their sexuality, then they should keep their mouths shut when comes to other people's loved ones. You got served, bald future lawn-care-specialist guy.

It's pretty obvious to me that if she wanted to insult by being homophobic, she'd have gone for a far more effective word. Rather, this writer is taking unfair advantage of her use of the word homosexual, as anyone would know if they knew the situation. I haqve no idea if she is homophobic, but this instance certainly does not make her one.

How about an accurate report?

The 20-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had just fallen from a mechanical bull while filming her reality show for the BIO Network when she was heckled by a 47-year-old man.

“Did you ride Levi like that? Your mother is a whore! Your mother is a f***ing devil!” he shouts.

Palin approaches the man and asks, “Is it because you’re a homosexual and that’s why you hate her?”

“Pretty much … and why’d you say I’m a homosexual?” he responds.

“Because I can tell you are,” Bristol says.

“You’re f***ing white trash from Wasila!” he screams as she leaves with her production crew. “F*** you, you f***ing b***h!”
