Bristol Palin is facing legal action from a man who heckled her at a local bar. Steven Hanks has filed a suit for defamation of character, after being filmed for Palin’s upcoming reality show, ‘Life’s a Tripp.’
While out to dinner at a Saddle Ranch during filming, Hanks heckeled Palin about her mother, Sarah. Bristol countered his taunts with “Is it because you’re a homosexual?” also referring to the man next to Hanks as his “wife.”
The episode has yet to air on TV, but clips have been all over the internet, and Palin spoke of the event during a n interview with In Touch magazine. Hanks is seeking $75,000 in damages, citing emotional distress due to his sexuality being questioned, as well as being blamed for her leaving the state.
Sounds to us like someone out to make a buck, or $75,000
Bristol Palin’s ‘Life’s a Tripp’ premieres next week on Lifetime.
