Bristol Palin is being sued for defamation by the man she got into a heckling match with last year at a West Hollywood bar, RadarOnline.com has learned.
"Bristol Palin first accused Plaintiff of 'being a homosexual' in a degrading manner in front of others," the lawsuit reads.
Hanks claims that by airing the exchange on her show, Bristol Palin: Life's A Tripp, his privacy and the privacy of his sexuality were breached and as such, he has suffered emotional distress.

Bristol has been having a bad week. Her show is a flop and now this. Go to sleep Bristol and maybe this will be just a bad dream.
Yeah...a guy who’s all concerned about his privacy starts heckling Bristol Palin in front of a television camera crew. What an idjit!
Pretty sure Ms Palin can afford exceptional representation. Hope this cretin can, because I think her attorney is going to rip him a new one.
I can’t believe he’s suing...what a fag!
And the first gay president referred to patriotic men, women, and children as “tea baggers”.
Bite it, Democrats.
He’s a proud homo but it’s degrading for anyone to point that he is a homo?
All I’ve got to say is.....
Loser pays.....loser pays....loser pays....
We need it!!!
It’s a silly nuisance suit soon to be thrown out of court. I doubt it really bothers her.
Sounds to me that Bristol would probably have been better off punching this little princess in the mouth
But wait a minute. Within the past 2 weeks a judge ruled there is no slander in calling someone homosexual because it’s “normal” to be homosexual. So, it’s not an insult or defamation. I’m not kidding.
I don’t usually watch these kinds of shows, but out of curiosity (and the fact that I was home), I watched. The guy was a complete #ss. Bristol did a great job in standing her ground. She made him look like the fool he is by asking him simple questions which he could not answer - except the question about his sexuality, which he answered in the affirmative. He made a choice.
I was really impressed how she confronted irrationality with reason, evil with calm. Then, she walked outside and broke down in tears. I applaud her restraint. I probably would have taken some drastic measures to shut him up.
Bristol is very much a kid, spoiled in some ways. However, she also has an incredible strength that really surprised me. I hope she can stay on the right track. She could be a real force in the world.
If he hadn’t started the whole incident, calling out to her that her mother was a “whore” and “evil”, there would have been no discussion of his sexuality on any camera. Good luck, drama queen (no pun intended).
He defamed himself by acting like a jerk. He started it all, now wants to sue her? I hope he gets laughed out of court.
she obviously doesn’t know much about the legal team that protects the Palins, including Mr. Van Sutren: John Coale, I interviewed him years ago when he was very active practicing law, and he don’t lose cases.......he’s a big fellow, and when he speaks, both the Judges and jurors listen
“Bristol has been having a bad week. Her show is a flop and now this. Go to sleep Bristol and maybe this will be just a bad dream.”
Looks as though you’re like suffering from the same thing as the forgettable guy in the bar who is suing Bristol—Bristol Envy Syndrome!
I remember that. He was hateful toward her.
Do you want her to end her abstinence, and pro-life work?
Most of us are siding with the conservative 21 year old over the homosexual activist.
“I think her attorney is going to rip him a new one.”
He’s probably long overdue for a “new one”. Am pretty sure the original is pretty much worn out by now!
