Bristol Palin 'Likes Gays,' She Says at DWTS Television Critics Association Panel
‘I like gays,’ said Bristol Palin at a Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) panel at the Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press tour. "I'm not a homophobic and I'm so sick of people saying that. Just because I'm for traditional marriage doesn't really mean I'm scared or anything of anyone else, and I don't hate anybody,” Palin said, according to The Wrap.
The daughter of former of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Bristol, who appeared on DWTS in 2010, is is returning to the smash reality series for an all-stars season.
"You know, people are going to make up stuff about me no matter what," Palin said at TCA. "Whatever. I'm going to go dance and I'm going to have fun. ... It's not about politics and it's not about traditional marriage and anything like that. It's just about dancing and it's going to be fun."
During her first run on DWTS Bristol caught viewers attention when she made a stereotypical lesbian joke in response to fellow contestant Margaret Cho’s assertion that Bristol was merely competing because her mother “forced her to do it.”
Bristol responded to Cho with a Facebook post that read, "You say you 'don't agree with the family's politics at all' but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert."
Recently Bristol came under scrutiny when word got out that her 3-year-old son Tripp used the “F” word during taping for the reality series Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp, although there has been debate as to which “F” word Tripp used. It was first reported that he said “faggot,” but a the showrunner for the series says that the child said “fuck” instead.
