It appears Bristol Palin might be saying too much around her three-year old son Tripp…
The Palins have never been known for being particularly gay-friendly — and unfortunately, it seems as if the youngest member of the family is following in the footsteps of his elders.
A newly-released clip from the Lifetime reality series “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” shows Tripp Palin uttering a homophobic slur when mom Bristol and aunt Willow won’t let him visit the swimming pool.
The Palin sisters gasp, and then giggle, when three-year-old Tripp’s temper tantrum culminates in the tot calling his aunt a “faggot.”
Though Bristol does confess that she’s “doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp…I know he’s going to continue to push the boundaries,” her son’s behavior doesn’t seem too out of step, given his family’s history of anti-gay activity. In 2010, Willow sparked controversy when she fired off at a classmate on Facebook, referring to him “so gay” and “such a faggot.”
Perhaps Sarah Palin’s grandson would be better served by taking notes from dad Levi Johnston, who in 2009 embraced his gay icon status on “The Joy Behar Show” following his steamy spread in Playgirl magazine.
