Bristol Palin took to Facebook to apologize, or not, for antigay slurs she and her sister wielded in response to a young man who criticized their mother Sarah Palin’s television show on the social networking site.
"Willow and I shouldn't have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize,” wrote Bristol on behalf of her younger sister, who has since deleted her Facebook account, according to TMZ. She continued, “On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!"
The younger sister had used the antigay slurs against a Facebook friend who dared to suggest that the show Sarah Palin’s Alaska appeared to be a failure. Then Bristol, a reality TV personality in her own right from Dancing With the Stars, jumped to her sister’s defense.
However, hours after posting the apology on Wednesday, Bristol seemed to begrudge the need to say she was sorry.
"Thank you supporters who continue to support,” she wrote. “The haters are already pulling out all the stops this week to destroy."
