Charming: Bristol Palin’s Son Drops Anti-Gay Slur

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

Bristol Palin’s son, Tripp, calls his Aunt Willow a “f*ggot” in a clip just released for Bristol’s Lifetime TV show, “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp.”

Perhaps the worst part is that after Tripp uses the slur during a temper tantrum, the Palin girls laugh it off. Bristol then tells the camera during a confessional: “I’m doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp. I know he’s going to continue to push the boundaries and push the limits.”

Check out the clip below:

Of course, this isn't the first time the anti-gay phrase has landed one of the Palin daughters in hot water. Two years ago, Willow herself used the same slur on Facebook.
