Bristol Palin Being Sued By Bar Heckler For Defamation
RadarOnline ^ | June 13, 2012 | Amber Goodhand

Posted on 06/22/2012 1:58:15 PM PDT by South40

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.

((SNIP))

"Bristol Palin first accused Plaintiff of 'being a homosexual' in a degrading manner in front of others," the lawsuit reads.

((snip))

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.

The creep heckled her in a public place while cameras were rolling and he claims his privacy has been violated? If he didn't want the world knowing he was queer why admit to it?

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.

And its Gay Pride Month, too.

How ironic.

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.

And the first gay president referred to patriotic men, women, and children as “tea baggers”.

Bite it, Democrats.

It’s a silly nuisance suit soon to be thrown out of court. I doubt it really bothers her.

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.

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.

He’s probably long overdue for a “new one”. Am pretty sure the original is pretty much worn out by now!

I just thunka that too. And not only that, as someone else posted, this particular homosexual is declaring his self-identification to be defaming during Gay Pride month.

1. How do you claim defamation when they just showed exactly what happened?

2. Oh, I see, you’re saying she defamed you because she called you a homosexual. Um...was she wrong? And by the way, you called her mom an evil whore. Do you really want to get into what proof you have for that, aside from the voices in your head?

3. Oh, I see, you’re also saying Bristol and Lifetime invaded your privacy. Smooth. Well, except how do you claim invasion of privacy when you saw Bristol Palin in the bar with a camera crew, you knew they were taping something, and YOU voluntarily walked into the scene?

They pay judges reasonably well here...but nowhere near well enough for them to keep a straight face at lawsuits like this.

Actually, she asked him was he a homosexual and he answered 'Yes' that he was.

Willfully divulging his sexual orientation queer status with full knowledge there was a camera running was his doing. And if being gay is so cool, why does he consider it disparaging?

This suit should be thrown out.

I watched the episode the other night. Apparently, this man wanted to yell obscenities at Bristol and have her not respond. Too bad for him that she did as she revealed in him what exists in so many who hate Sarah Palin...that being the fact thay when asked they can’t even say why.

Yes, but according to him she said it is a "degrading manner in front of others".

Did you both watch the show???? Perhaps you are the reason it bombed. I am stating a fact. And as far as her getting sued....I would not want to be sued and it would make for a bad week if I did. I did not say anything pro for the guy suing.

Before Bristol even set eyes on the guy he called Sarah Palin a “whore” and made a derogatory sexual reference to Bristol and Levi.

If Todd Palin had been in that bar this whole thing would already have been sorted out with alacrity.

I think we watched Act Of Valor that night. I’m not into the Reality Show stuff. I’ll probably never watch the show. Not my thing. If it fails for lack of interest, so be it. It won’t change my high regard for the Palin family.

My comment was aimed at the fact that some fag is suing for being called a fag and you chose to focus on a bad week for Bristol Palin - why not focus on the obvious gist of the story? That was my point.

The point of how ridicuolus this lawsuit is.

liberals believe they should be able to shout obscenities at others in public and on camera but, apparently, the daughter of a conservative politico asking a man if he is gay is not allowed.

liberals are insane.

Liberals are hypocrites who want to “have it both ways.” They try to set up two distinct separate standards, one for them and another for their adversaries.

Our job is to get up in their faces, calmly but firmly, and tell them: "No, you may not have it both ways." I'm still debating whether it would be appropriate to follow up with a rolled up newspaper across their noses.

I don’t want her to stop her public works. I am not on the fag’s side. You are normally so educated on things.....I said she had a bad week.....Now knock it off and get yourself together and stop causing trouble that is not there.....You have a habit of doing that to everyone but I am not going to play your silly games.
