Britstol Palin's Heckler Apologies

| Filed under: Bristol Palin

This was big of him. It will also possibly save his life.

Ya'll remember this video (above), right? It's of this dude, real name Stephen Hanks, who started heckling Bristol Palin while at a bar in West Hollywood. Their feud got very heated in the moment, but it blew up once the video hit the Internet.

According to Stephens attorney, his client has been receiving numerous death threats since the video hit the web and after seeing the vid, he's decided to apologize:

"Having had an opportunity to view the camera footage of the incident this past Thursday at the Saddle Ranch Bar & Chop House in West Hollywood, and having reflected on the incident over the weekend, 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.

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 … I apologize to them for my poor judgment that night, and to Bristol for any hurt my actions may have caused her. I wish Bristol success with her television show, and much happiness in the future."

Good for you, Stephen. Here's hoping people stop threatening to kill you.

Violence is no the answer people. Everyone has the right to their opinions … and to get in public screaming matches in peace. We guess.

    I respectfully disagree, Perez. This wasn't "big of him". This "apology" was made through his attorney and the reason he retained a lawyer over this was because he was afraid of being sued. If he was truly remorseful for his vicious verbal attack, he could have contacted any media outlet, taken out an ad in a paper, called into any radio show, or contacted the producers of Bristol's show to personally apologize. He's not sorry - he's just sorry in retrospect that this could cost him his job, his reputation, fear of a libel suit, etc. An apology made through a lawyer is never sincere.

    I heard Bristol is now dating that Mechanical Bull, and believe or not, it going rather well for the two of them….At least the Mechanical Bull has a Full-Time Job, unlike her other male suitors..

    Re: Meggie246524 – I agree that the apology seems insincere, but my brother is defense lawyer. He makes all clients sign a contract that they won't release statements to the media without his permission, which is fairly standard procedure. It's like apologizing after a car accident…as well intentioned as a heartfelt apology may seem, it can ultimately be interpreted as a marker of guilt and make it a legal headache for everyone involved. Although, I agree that it wasn't big of him…if you act inappropriately you should apologize in some format, although I really doubt that this guy's life was ever seriously threatened.

    This is the usual when a gay guy is upset that he can call out what even & when ever in their f ing rage!! O I am sorry!! Just like Fez when he screamed out racial slurs> Would have loved to see her walk right up and kicked him in the nuts!! But he would get richer for it thou!! There was a day you could kick someones ass for this shit!! Now you get sued if you beat the shit out of a robber because you left the door unlocked.. This is what will take down this Country!! Shitheads that are protected by the law!! I hope someone still kicks the shit out of him on the street, he wont be hard to pick out!!! It will read:Racial beat down in the papers!!!

    Scripted.

    I like how that bald headed shit can't give her a reason for hating Sarah Palin. Whether he likes Sarah Palin or not, he has to be a pretty big fuck to tell a child her mom is a whore. I don't care if she was the devil, that guy's an ass, and he ONLY apologized because thousands saw what a dick he is.

    Now, if only the UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE's ASSISTANT PITCHING COACH ROGER WAYNE WILLIAMS would apologize to the young woman he went off on five months ago! Schools should not employ people of such vulgar nature. Why? Because they are in a position of influence. If his team of young men sees him disrespecting women, it's possible that they might imitate the behavior he (RW Williams) modeled for them!

    I never hear him apologize to her. I'm not a fan of Palin but see this is what I can't stand about liberals. They attack, name call and degrade. That is what they do.

    So many Democrats are just rude.



  9. 9

    The guys is a major asshole. Good for Bristol for sticking up for her mom, most people would do the same



  10. 10

    I'm pretty liberal and I can't stand Sarah Palin either- but this guy was completely out of line and if he was speaking directly to Sarah Palin I would STILL say that he was out of line.

    Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but that doesn't include being abusive (verbally or physically) to someone else.

    All he did was make himself look like a stupid jerk. Bristol handled the situation very well (to say the least), and I'm actually impressed. Good for her. Nice work Hanks, way to further our causes on the left.



  11. 11

    Let's see if he gets killed anyway.



  12. 12

    This was beyond politics. It was a personal attack. He clearly was out there to hurt and insult another person. Some Americans take politics to the extreme and he is case and clear one of them. There is a forum for that guy to express his dislikes and a bar is not the place. Attend town hall meetings, join an organization or become a politician if he's so damn passionate for politics.



  13. 13

    Stephen Hanks apologized through his attorney only because his life has been threatened. He isn't sorry for being a rude scumbag. Regardless of how he feels about Sarah, he didn't need to call Sarah a whore or start a stupid fight with Bristol. The guy is an asshole loser who needs to learn how to shut the hell up.

    It's so awful that she asks him if he doesn't like her mom because he's a homosexual. That's the only real tragedy of this video. Bristol Palin thinks she can 'spot' a homosexual and then criticize them for being one (although that guy isn't).



  15. 15

    I just realized that I'm the only one who gives a shit about Bristol's indignant behavior. Guess what Bristol?! Your mom shot wolves from a helicopter (and that's shockingly the smallest of her atrocities). A large majority of people are upset by Sarah Palin. Even if Sarah Palin wasn't who she is, it's politics, it's the name of the game. You're going to hear angry opinions about your mother and you can't call everyone who dislikes her a homosexual and point at random men in a bar and claim that they are the homosexual's boyfriend. She looked obnoxious.

    I'd actually never seen the video. POOR GIRL! She was trying to have a nice time and relax with her friends when this GEEZER MORON starts saying horrible things to her that are not true. He should be completely ashamed of himself! When she intellegently asked him questions he could answer any of them just name call. How could this idiot live 50 years on this Earth and be dumber than a brick. Man if I were gay I would so be embarrassed if he's a representative of my culture! He just took gays back about 50 years.



  17. 17

    I'm not buying the sincerity of the apology at all. What a freaking loser. PALIN 2012!!! She can put these loser sluts in their place, she is a good shot.

    Re: Stausaur
    I think that when Bristol asked him that in a civilized and not a sarcasic tone, she was looking for a reason for his hate and she has already been subjected ot a lot of anger from the gay community over what they think of her mother when they misdirect it at her
    .
    there is nothing that will ever excuse what he said
    and I don't believe hsi apology because if he really felt in hindsight that what he said was totally inappropriate and uncalled for he would hae made an apology himself the very next day…not waited until he saw he needed to have a lwayer make a phoney one
    .
    to me his is disgusting!



  19. 19

    we guess? fucking MORON! Sarah Palin is an idiot but this disgusting, drunk piece of shit verbally attacked a young woman without provocation. If it was a straight person verbally attacking a gay person, you'd be up in arms for months. But here, with a PR written apology, all is forgiven? You are a hypocrite Barbara (and Mario if he's even there this week). PATHETIC!
