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."

Bristol Palin is a silly little girl from a hick town in the deep North. She ought to go back there and look after her baby.

The entire Palin family is just plain disgusting, very trashy. They use such ugly words when they feel the need to verbally attack someone. The fact that they actually do that shows just how low class they actually are. This isn't even the first time she's said something like that to someone. She may not be homophobic, but she definitely shows her ignorance by saying things such as that. When she does stuff like this, it makes the things Levi has said about her family seem even more believable.

Some homosexuals who visit this site, does not care to be corrected when ole Harv gets undies in a knot.. jump up and down ..&. ASSUME... someone jumped his rabbit. Your lack of understanding and refusal to see the truth here will not bring anything positive from your.. sexual life-style opposers..Seems as though you live just to bitch, and think everyone who say the words ho-mo are homophobic. Get over yourselves, enjoy whatever it is you do, get a brace in your back, and reasonable understanding. You act worse than school yard children.

Lets see she got pregnant out of wedlock so I guess that makes her and her dimwit mother w hoers.

Hey Jerry, Obamas mother had him out of wedlock and a year younger than Bristol was. I guess that means Obamas mother was an even bigger whore right?....

Let's ignore the fact that a man in his 40's was yelling at a young woman. And ignore the fact he was calling her mother a whore. Let's just obsess that she called him a homosexual WHICH HE IS. Damn that Bristol Palin she is evil!!!

Why does the media portray white people who are religious as wingnuts but people of color and anyone who is not white as spiritual when they are religious and share basically the same views...things that make you go hmmmm...

As a gay man, I was quite offended by Bristol's slur. Why was it necessary to criticize her critic's sexuality? She should have stopped short of doing this. I accept that she was defending her mother but she should not have questioned the guy's sexuality.

In any case, why is she in a bar with a fake bull?

the man's comment was out of line.
however, unless she knew the man, which she did not, her comment is clearly homophobic.
her "camp" can say what it wants, but you get to believe otherwise.
stupid begets stupid.

They're both idiots! I do think that lil' Ms. Christian Values should be at home with her baby instead of filming a trashy reality TV show in a bar. But hey, whatever. I'm sure one day her little Trick/Trag/Trup/whatever-hig-name-is will be just soooo proud of his mommy and daddy's classy behavior ... footage of which will live on forever. Thanks be to Youtube. Amen.

Nice to see that alot of people on TMZ are Pro-Bristol.. NOT! How can this girl assume someone is gay and for that they hate Sarah Palin? She is just the product of her parents!

wasted days and wasted nights    

I can't figure out why so many people are so uptight about Sarah and Bristol and the whole rootin' tootin' family from the land of snow and look, there's Pops gunnin' the motor of his snow machine. In another era, I figure they'd have been big TV stars like the Beverly Hillbillies.

Bristol " I am no homophobe" ok so? She is not a celebrity either so why do you keep covering her TMZ? Haven't you given enough publicity to a nobody?
