Bristol Palin's Heckler Issues An Apology! Now We Think It's Her Turn!

So far, Bristol has only denied that her remark was homophobic. That’s not enough!

Remember that heated encounter between Bristol Palin and a heckler at Saddle Ranch last week? The one where he called her mom, Sarah Palin, a “whore” and “the devil,” to which Bristol replied, “Is that because you’re a homosexual?” Well, her heckler Stephen Hanks has decided to apologize. But should he really be the only one?

“I have come to the conclusion that no matter what my feelings are towards Sarah Palin, I should not have expressed them towards her daughter, Bristol Palin,” Stephen said Sept. 27 in a statement. “I am very passionate about politics, and believe in equality for all Americans. … I expressed my feelings in an improper manner in the heat of the moment, and allowed my emotions to get the better of me.”

OK, fair. We agree that Stephen was right to apologize for using that kind of language, unprovoked, against Bristol. But we also think she should have to apologize to him for the way she responded.

Two wrongs don’t make a right, Bristol! We’re sure your mother would agree.
