Bristol Palin Fights Back Against Hater

Bristol Palin was enjoying a mechanical bull ride at L.A.'s Saddle Ranch when a man let loose with a expletive-filled tirade against the reality star. Find out why Palin's bull ride was the smoothest part of the night.

Bristol Palin confronts heckler

Bristol Palin went to L.A.'s famed Saddle Ranch on Thursday night to kick back with a few friends and ride a bull. Her fun ended abruptly after another customer yelled obscenities at the former Dancing With the Stars finalist.

"Did you ride Levi like that?" the crude customer yelled from the bar, referring to Palin's ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston. "Your mother's a [expletive]."

Palin didn't let the comments go without a fight.

"What'd you say?" she asked him directly.

"Your mother's the [expletive] devil, dude," the 47-year-old man -- later identified by TMZ as Stephen Hanks -- replied.

"Oh, is she?" Palin added. "What'd she do wrong?"

"She lives. She breathes," Hanks said of her mother, Sarah Palin. "If there was a hell -- which I don't believe there is -- she will be there. She's evil."

Palin wasn't fazed. "Why's that? Is it because you're a homosexual?"

"Pretty much!" he replied to the reality star. "And why'd you say I'm a homosexual?"

"I can tell you are," she retorted, repeating her challenge to give "one example" of why her mother is evil.

"Well, you know what," Hanks snapped back. "You don't look anything like [NBA player] Glen Rice. I thought you would." A new book by author Joe McGinniss alleges that ex-governor Palin had a one-night stand with Rice.

"You're right," Palin said sarcastically. "I'm half African-American. You caught me!"

"You're [expletive] white trash from Wasilla," he screamed. "Your mom ran that city into the [expletive] grave. [expletive] you, you [expletive]!"

My, that man has quite the vocabulary.

Palin and pals then stormed out of the bar as cameras trailed them into the parking lot.

I don't care who you are, or who your parents are. You do not deserve to be talked to like that. Bristol Palin is not her mother. She is a brave girl, and she stands up for what she believes in. That alone should get her major points. Her mother isn't my favorite person in the world, but hey, who am I to say she isn't a good person? What that man did was not freedom of speech, it was harassment. She simply defended herself and her family, and any sane person would do the same. That man does not deserve to be in public with normal people who understand rules and propriety.

This idiot needs an old fashion beat down. Lucky for him I wasn't Bristol or he will be picking up his teeth on his way to whatever hole he came from.

Team Bristol, of course! That guy is a loon. So proud of Bristol Palin! She is a badass! That guy couldn’t give one factual reason why he hated Sarah Palin. Typical liberal. All emotion, no brains. Critics of the Palin’s are calling Bristol a homophobe. Why, because she asked him if he was a homoual? This incident took place at a bar in West Hollywood, chances are that he was. And she was correct. I’m sure Bristol has had quite a few run-ins with the community, considering she’s been living in L.A. these past couple of months. Many of whom that do not like Sarah Palin, because of her position on marriage. The same position President Obama holds, by the way. But many people don’t seem to have a problem with him. Very hypocritical. By the way, why is no one asking if this guy is a ist? He called Sarah Palin a ! I don’t hear much of an outcry over his comments. Double standard? Of course. Liberal logic always escapes me. Liberals and s are always preaching tolerance. Meanwhile, Bristol got verbally attacked by a liberal, and yet, instead of denouncing this clown, they are praising him. Says more about their respective causes than it does about the Palin’s.

It may be freedom of speech but also freedom of brains also.

Couldn't be a Bad hair day...might be Bad News...Did Maury call with results of his boyfriends stool DNA...and He was Not the father..He was as angry as a Keebler elf that lost his fudge backing job..maybe he should go to his Enchanted Happy place and sit on his Long Juan...not a palin fan but not a Loud mouth azz wipe either...

This was pure hate. And to rationalize this vitriole as "freedom of speech", is just as disturbed. Review the laws of slander and libel, smileyjohnsen. Does a 47 yo man have the right to abuse a 20 yo girl? Does anyone? Bristol handled it with far more dignity and class. Even more evidence that the more left, the more one's soul is full of hate. Only the Right seem to respect the POTUS enough to heed his call for civility.

No one should speak to someone like that no matter who they are. Have some respect.

smileyjohnsen September 23, 2011 | 1:44 PM

Freedom of speech enough said.
