Kid sisters and their gay slurs. What a drag!
With 16-year-old Willow Palin catching heat for calling an old classmate a "f----t" on Facebook after he dared to criticize Sarah Palin's Alaska , Bristol Palin stepped up today to apologize.
More or less.
"Willow and I shouldn't have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize," Bristol wrote on her Facebook wall. "On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!"
A few hours later, she added: "Thank you supporters who continue to support. The haters are already pulling out all the stops this week to destroy."
Apparently the whole thing started when someone named Tre, who supposedly went to Willow's school, updated his Facebook status on Sunday with, "Sarah Palin's Alaska, is failing so hard right now."
Willow then wrote on his wall: "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 by writing: "You're running your mouth just to talk s--t." The surprise Dancing finalist also lashed out at a 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, according to TMZ.
