The Huffington Post reported Tuesday that 16-year-old Willow Palin unloaded on [a] student and lashed out at multiple others during a Facebook wall post war. But Palin was not the only Facebook user to throw out scathing insults.
Willow Palin is under immense media scrutiny and being dubbed homophobic by Gawker, a website that has made clear its unfavorable view of the Palin family, for describing one former schoolmate as so gay and a faggot.
TMZ obtained screenshots yesterday of the Facebook debate, which began when a Facebook user and former classmate of the Palin girls named Tre posted a status update that said, Sarah Palins Alaska, is soo failing hard right now. Willow Palin responded, Dont watch it dumb shit and Bristol Palin wrote, Youre running your mouth just to talk shit .
Tre replied with, Willow, dont make me count to three and a boy name Matt wrote, not as fat as Bristol The only program I enjoyed from your family is Nailin Palin.
It is around this point Willow jumped in to criticize those friends lashing out at her and her family, calling one, Matt, s0 gay and another, Tre, a faggot.
Tre went on to call Willow hella ignorant and say, Your moms show sucks, just get over it. Ill post whatever the f*ck I want about it on MY Facebook .& sorry Bristol, we can all live fail lives because you got pregnant when you were 17ha we all cant get lucky and have our moms be the gov. and you getting on talk shows because your pre-marital sex.
Toward the end of the spat, Matt wrote, directed at Bristol Palin, B*tch if I remember right you were grabbin my a** in wrestling practice I know I dont have a kid, maybe because I know what a f*cking condom is.
The news outlets that have written about this story have attributed anti-gay views and bigotry to Willow Palin, a minor, but none have questioned Facebook user Matts comments calling the Palin daughters a slur for a prostitute.
Mario Ruiz, vice president of media relations at The Huffington Post, wrote in an e-mail to The Daily Caller, Huffpost exercises caution when reporting on minors. In the case of the widely-reported remarks made by Willow Palin on her Facebook page, HuffPost editors considered Palins age as well as the storys newsworthiness, in addition to her public profile, including her on-screen participation in a reality show, Sarah Palins Alaska, before deciding to cover and link to TMZs story.
In January 2009, Tina Wells wrote a Huffington Post column condemning the dolls being made of Sasha and Malia Obama. Wells said of the Obama daughters, They did not ask for the attention and shouldnt have to maintain an image provided without their, or their parents, approval
For the most part, President and Mrs. Obama have kept the girls out of the medias reach, and a situation like this totally violates and exploits them.
Yet the Left (and even Barack Obama himself) used the homophobic slur “teabagger” to harass members of the Tea Party.
This is the reason that Lurker Jr. is not permitted to have a Facebook or Myspace account.
There will be oh so many people claiming that these young girls need to just shut up and take it.
Those people should not breed.
Ya............ So who cares?
Sarah. All others Palin comparison.
Why would parents let children on Facebook in the first place. A total waste of time and energy and a fantastic way to ruin your life. wtf?
Also... the younger generation has totally different meaning for the term, “faggot” than we do. I learned that in a really funny conversation with my niece.
I can live with the use of the word “faggot” but young Willow was throwing the other “F” word around right and left.
I’m sorry but no matter what the others said first, the Palins should punish their daughter. She has been in trouble before. It’s just dumb cursing on line in fights with idiots on the Internet.
Has anyone explained the difference between “disgust” and “fear” to Gawker?
the left is deranged and is suffering from conserophobia.
Those would be the same people who called Sarah Palin a c&n& and say she is not a feminist.
Just close the facebook accounts. They aren’t necessary anyway.
Sarah needs to look over her kids shoulder a little more often. Kids on the internet needs supervision just like every other teenager activity.
Not saying it’s easy...just saying it needs to be done.
Good Lord!! A words war on the facebook pages of one of Sarah Palin’s daughters and her schoolmates? Is this REALLY considered news? Ridiculous.
The truth is that to their credit, the media are not widely reporting Willow Palin getting in trouble. Forget the media, the girl posted “F you” multiple times in response to these people, and I am troubled if the Palins don’t punish that.
A foul mouth in public is nothing to defend. Certainly not by a 16 year old girl.
Bristol apologized on behalf of her sister.....this is a dead story....
Given my definition of what a feminist is, she is not one.
She is not hairy, crew-cutted, man-hating, baby aborting, manly or lesbian so no, in my definition of the word, she is most certainly NOT a feminist.
Might find this funny. My how times have changed:
Actually, according to Dictionary.com’s definitions of Homophobe, I fall under one of the definitions.
Bring it on! :)
