Video: Bristol Palin's 3-year old son calls aunt "faggot"

Bristol Palin: ‘I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp’

Sarah Palin's three-year-old grandson has been filmed using a gay slur against his aunt during the Lifetime reality show "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp."

In a clip just released, Bristol's son Tripp calls his Aunt Willow a "faggot" when she wouldn't let him use the pool. "Go away, you faggot. I don't like you," Tripp said. 

After his tantrum the Palin girls, both daughters of social conservative Sarah Palin, shockingly just laugh it off.

"I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp," admitted Bristol. "I know he's going to continue to push the boundaries and push the limits."

Bristol Palin rocked her mother's 2008 Republican vice-presidential campaign when she became an unwed mother at 18-years-old. Tripp's dad, Levi Johnston, hasn't been allowed to see his son since January. 

The new reality show airing on Lifetime gives viewers an inside look into what it's like inside the day-to-day routine. Critiques say perhaps we are seeing too much of what its like to be part of the Palin clan and are questioning Lifetime's decision to keep the ratings-troubled show. 

This isn't the first time the anti-gay slur has gotten the Palin daughters into trouble. Two years ago, Willow used the same slur on Facebook. 

Anyone whose children and grandchild are not respectful citizens or respectful to family members should not be rewarded with TV shows, speaking opportunities at national party conventions or be taken seriously by the rest of us. GO HOME, Palins, and be loving to each other. The world has enough bickering and prejudice already. Don't add to the garbage.

Hasn't she already gotten into hot water with the LGBT community before? Like mother, like daughter. Bristol is selling herself in any form or fashion just like Sarah, to make that money (even at the expense of others.) She pays a ghost-writer to slap together blog entries on hot-button issues to shamelessly promote herself. Talk about some successful capitalists- all body and no brains. See how far they’re willing to go for the cash at
