    Bristol Palin's Camp Calls Homophobia Accusations "Completely Unfounded"

    Bristol Palin was just asking a question, nothing more.

    Or so explains a rep for Sarah Palin's eldest daughter, who, in response to some serious slams against her mom, asked a fellow bar-goer last night if he was "a homosexual."

    Whatever anyone may think of Bristol's inquiry, she was the one taking the high road, according to her camp.

    "She was approached in a confrontational and inappropriate manner when two men aggressively shouted expletives aimed at her in reference to her mother," her rep tells E! News.

    "Bristol responded to the unprovoked verbal assault by calmly standing her ground and defending her family."

    The 20-year-old's face-off with Stephen Hanks began after she took a ride on the mechanical bull at the Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood and Hanks shouted, "Did you ride Levi like that?! Your mother's a whore!"

    When Bristol confronted him, the conflict—which was all caught on video—quickly escalated, with Hanks suggesting that Sarah Palin belongs in hell.

    "Is it because you're a homosexual...and that's why you hate her?" Bristol asked him. She and her friends left the bar a few moments later without incident (beyond the obvious, anyway).

    "The situation ended with no incident," her rep says, "and accusing her of homophobia is completely unfounded and totally misstates her views."
