Willow Palin, who looks like she could be her older sister Bristol's twin, has not learned anything, it seems, from her family's constant public embarrassments. The sixteen-year-old is apparently old enough to have a Facebook account but too young to realize that with great media attention comes great responsibility.
She's friends with a guy named Tre, a guy she claims not to even know in real life, and the following exchange set Willow off on a Facebook-commenting spree that did not bode well for a more intelligent stand on gay rights under President Palin:
Tre: Sarah Palin’s Alaska, is failing so hard right now.
Willow Palin: Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I’ve seen pictures of, your disgusting … My sister had a kid and is still hot.
Willow Palin: Tre stfu. Your such a faggot.
Oh, wait, what's this?
Bristol Palin: You’re running your mouth just to talk shit. [to someone else] You’ll be as successful as my baby daddy, And actually I do work my ass off. I’ve been a single mom for the last two years.
Willow Palin: Sorry that you guys are all jealous of my families success and you guys aren’t goin to go anywhere with your lives.
Although TMZ captured the original messages, LezGetReal hits the nail on the head about this whole thing:
[Palin family spokespeople say] Willow does not normally use this type of language… [likening] it to a baby bear defending its mother, which is an unusual sight to see. Apparently, Willow felt that she and her family were being attacked.
Actually, it looked a lot less like a baby bear defending its mother than a pair of girls who cannot stand criticism savaging people over what even the people at FOX News agreed with. The show apparently has all the charm of a natural disaster without the excitement.
