With 16-year-old Willow Palin catching some serious heat for calling an old classmate a f***ot on Facebook, older sister Bristol stepped up to apologize.
"Willow and I shouldn't have reacted to the negative comments about our family. We apologize," Bristol Palin wrote on her Facebook wall. "On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!"
Bristol Palin has her sister Willow's back.
A few hours later, B-Palin added: "Thank you supporters who continue to support. The haters are already pulling out all the stops this week to destroy."
Yes, there it is. The conspiracy angle. Some misguided defenders of the Palins have opined that using the word f----t is only bad because it's Willow.
Bristol did not specifically mention Willow's gay slur directed at Tre, some dude who supposedly went to their school, and who updated his Facebook page Sunday with, "Sarah Palin's Alaska is failing so hard right now."Not to take this biting criticism of her mom's show lightly, Willow retorted: "Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I've seen pictures of, your disgusting … My sister had a kid and is still hot...Tre stfu. Your such a f----t."
For her part, Bristol joined Willow in bashing Tre, writing: "You're running your mouth just to talk s--t." She also singled out some guy named "Jon," writing: "You'll be as successful as my baby daddy, And actually I do work my ass off."
"I've been a single mom for the last two years."
Willow has since deleted her Facebook account. Should we care what a teenager says? Is it any less bad because the word is common? The question remains ...
Is Willow Palin homophobic?
