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."

The loud homosexual man should have been thrown out by the management before Bristol reached him.

If her first comment in a counter-attack is to call someone a homosexual, then she is using the term as a derogatory device.

You are so right. Call my mom or my kid a whore no matter if you're a *** or straight and I'm at your door slamming you to the ground. Like who asked this *** freak for his input when Bristol was minding her business and he/she or whatever the ugly ******* was ... he deserved more than she gave him. He won't be calling a strong big guy's mom a whore but the sweetie pie picked on a nice girl who loves her mom and should. That non gay guy would flatten that bald beagle and make him uglier than he is. Gay or a *** or straight, no one has the right to assault Bristol and he did, thus pork chops try coming after me, and see how straight I can make one freak who attacks innocent women. Come on ... you should be put down .. you do nothing for the gay community if they want to live in a civilized world they beg for. Is this what is to be expected when a homo is outted and they don't like you .. they attack. I wasn't hating gays before .. just putting up with them and now... hey, I don't like you ... no .. not even.

And thats the truth    

"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."

TMZ when you continue a story, you need to include THE ENTIRE THING THAT WAS SAID instead of spinning it to make it into something it is not. You are getting to the point where you are not better then the Enquirer, if that is possible.

Poor little Bristle, all dressed up in her Jesus suit and calling somebody gay in defense of her mommy. That seems to be her response to every challenge. Homophobic...oh yes, I think so!

Why is someone insulting whores by including Sarah Palin. She would make a lousy whore. Of course it is Alaska. So Bristol defense of the homophobe comment was because she is a homophobe or is not??? The Palin's are very confusing

Where were all the REAL MEN that night that nobody defended Bristal. She was out with frinds trying to have a nice evening out and this jerk had to act like an ass and nobody did a thing. Sad situation, this had to happen to a nice young woman and nobody even cared. No real men anymore ! ! !

Given that statistically homosexuals do hate her mom because of her outspoken Christian values,

IF YOU ARE FAIR MINDED AND LISTEN CAREFULLY,

she ASKS him,

she does not CALL him a homosexual,

SHE DID NOT CALL HIM A HOMOSEXUAL,

SHE ASKED him if he hated her mom because he is a homosexual and HE immediatley answered it was true...LISTEN AGAIN PEOPLE.

She was inquiring if that was his reason...if the answer was no, then the conversation could have gone the way most of you are seeing it. But it in fact did not. She could then have been accused then and only then, of citing homosexuality...

she did not jump on him and just shout GAY... she obviously is more than aware that most homosexual people more than just about any group H A T E her mom because of her moral values.

She jumped to the conclusion rightly so and asked him if being a homeosexual was his starting point for his rant and she was right...HE said it for himself that him being a homosexual had everything to do with his remarks...

She actually was the intelligent, polite one if you are being honest about the dialogue.

She knew instinctively that is where he was coming from and called him out for it...

Listen again people. She never bashed a gay or slur the group. It just did not happen...and if this was a court of law and facts presented, and the conversation transcribed word for word, you would hear this more clearly...most of you are just wrong about stirring up gay bashing controversy.

TMZ tries to politicalize every thing gay...that is the truth.

Bristol, unfortunately, displayed immaturity in her response that played well into this guy's hand.

If she wants to mingle and pretend like she's a star instead of a money/attention chaser like her mother, she'd better get ready to discover that a lot of people don't like her, mommy, or the rest of her backwoods gang.

TMZ's rhetoric here is nearly as bad as the hatchet job on the "Modern Family" girl that ate at Chic-Fil-A. Your bullying and name calling has become systemic. Your agenda is foul. Clean up your act. You should be ashamed.
