Bristol Palin wants to make it clear: her son has a potty mouth, not a homophobic mouth.
Following a clip from her reality show that made the Internet rounds yesterday and certainly appeared as if three-year old Tripp Palin referred to his aunt with a gay slur, Bristol has taken to her blog and explained the situation.
"As I've said before, I sometimes struggle to raise Tripp. However, he does NOT use slurs.. Let me be clear. I'm not proud of what he did say. Sadly, he used a different 'f word.'"
Life's a Tripp showrunner Matt Lutz backs up this account, while Bristol - being a Palin - couldn't open her online mouth without taking a shot at Democrats.
"I do oppose gay marriage, as I've written about before... I guess the temptation to label my three year old son is just too great for the lefty papers to resist."
Either that, or possibly viewers considered Bristol's history with homophobia and drew a not-so-far-fetched conclusion.
