Where did 3-year-old Tripp (Palin) Johnston learn the word faggot?

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Kids say the darndest things.

Bristol Palin — who at age 18 became an unwed mother, and now advocates for teen pregnancy prevention and is a paid speaker on the subject of teen abstinence — admits she’s “doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp,” he 3-year-old son.

And one example of “doing a terrible job” is giggling with your sister when your 3-year-old toddler calls Aunt Willow a “faggot,” reports Gawker.

Watch:

Tripp’s gay slur appears in a newly-released clip from the Lifetime reality series “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” when mom Bristol and Aunt Willow won’t let him go to the swimming pool.

It was just two years ago when then 16-year-old “Aunt” Willow Palin lit up the internet when she used multiple homophobic slurs — including the word faggot — to attack a Facebook user who criticized mom Sarah Palin’s failed reality show.

Eventually a message board war erupted, and Bristol joined in the exchange.

At the time, sources connected to the Palin family told TMZ that “Willow normally doesn’t use this type of language.”

Still, makes you wonder who’s teaching Tripp gay slurs.

Update: “Life’s a Tripp” producer Matt Lutz tells Gawker that Tripp’s bleeped expletive was “fuck” and not “faggot.” Lutz says that he was in the room at the time, and that he has reviewed the raw footage several times. Watch the video above, you decide.

  4. Aaah, nothing like the love of a “biblical family” to help children grow up to be well-adjusted healthy people. I half-hope he’s gay to spite his family, but he WOULD be shamed into suicide (I’m not ruling out murdered outright, either)

  15. Where else would he learn it from? Both mommy dearest and auntie have been caught by the public for saying it before. Of course, I won’t discount the possibility that he could have very well learned it from the “gotcha” queen herself.

  20. She’s not a true Christian if she is teaching her child homophobic slurs. Christian’s get a bad name because of crazy conservatives like her! Christianity does NOT equal hate, ignorance like the Palin’s do!

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 9:56pm
  21. Terrible

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 9:57pm
  22. We are not surprised are we? It also strikes me how angry the child is and how much he uses the word “hate”.

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:01pm

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:07pm
  26. and why did TLC air that episode – why are they doing a show about that slut Bristol Palin & her bastard kid anyway (if she wasn’t a gay basher I would not call her a slut & I wouldn’t call her kid a bastard)

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:08pm

  31. disgusting

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:17pm
  32. maybe from his retard cousin?

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:23pm
  33. sorry – sometimes you just have to say it – these people are trash and they are breeding trash…

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:24pm
  34. Can’t blame it on the kids at school, not at his young age. And for all intents and purposes he has no daddy, so we can’t blame Levi. So he had to have learned that word from his mother or someone on her side of the family. But Troy, please don’t stoop to the Palin family’s level and use the R-word to describe a mentally impaired child.

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:29pm
  35. From his dressed up white trash family. Sick.

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:39pm

  41. very charming.. Also very typical.

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:49pm
  42. It figures this would come from Sarah Palin’s grandson… hating is in that family’s DNA, along with being oversexed. Teach a child hate & intolerance & what can you expect.?

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:49pm
  43. That seems to be the critical question. The whole family needs its mouths washed out with soap. Lye soap!

    Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 10:49pm

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 1:19am
  53. probably his parents, most kids who learn words as hurtful as that learn it from their parents because their parents r racists or bigots and closed minded and ignorant

  58. Shocks me that Lifetime allowed that scene to air and make a joke of it. If that little shit said the “N” word, it would have never aired.

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 4:24am
  59. White trash family.

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 5:30am
  60. it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know the entire family is a bunch of low life sleaze balls. They come across as a family with loose morals who try to hide behind saying they are Christian.

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 5:50am
  61. He learned it from his low-life mommy and the rest of her family.

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 6:32am
  62. Gross!!! They are ALL PURE white TRASH!!! So sad these are the types of kids people raise…as they both just sit there while he acts a fool!! Yuk!

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 7:30am
  68. It’s truly a shame that people will teach their children to hate at such a young age.

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 7:39am
  69. Of course I’m offended by the fact that Bristol’s little boy is saying this word. But I’m more offended that LifeTime has lowered their standards and put this show on the air. The good thing though is that it won’t last!

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 9:49am
  70. his grandma and mom

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 11:29am
  73. The expletive was bleeped, but I heard ‘fuck,’ not faggot. I’m wondering who exactly on these comments read the article in the first place. Still disgraceful to have “auntie” using homophobic slurs on facebook. :/

    Posted on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 12:35pm
