Tripp Palin, Age 3, Calls Auntie Willow “Faggot” During Filming of Lifetime’s ‘Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp’

Bristol Palin’s three-year-old son Tripp called his aunt Willow a racial slur during the filming of a Lifetime television reality show.

“Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” is a reality series chronicling motherhood and other challenges faced by Bristol Palin, the 21-year-old daughter of former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

In a scene from one episode of the show, Bristol travels from Alaska to Phoenix, Arizona with Tripp and younger sister Willow in tow. Bristol has some real estate business to attend to and is helping Willow check out some colleges.

A rambunctious Tripp wants to go swimming in the communal pool at Bristol’s home. She objects because there are “a bunch of drunk kids down there.” Tripp proceeds to throw a mini-tantrum, prattling away about how much he hates mom and auntie Willow.

“God’s watching you,” admonishes a semi-flustered Bristol. Then, in “God’s” presence, little Tripp calls Willow a “faggot.”

Bristol and Willow react with face-palmed shock, but not in a bad way. The sisters are visibly amused by the toddler’s inappropriate outburst.

“I’m doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp,” Bristol says during a candid interview. “I know he’s going to push the boundaries and push the limits.”

But Tripp’s outburst begs the question of where he learned such bigoted vocabulary. Three-year-olds don’t just go around calling people “faggots.” He had to have learned such filth from somebody close to home. Perhaps it was from Willow herself, who unleashed a barrage of homophobic slurs— including “faggot”– against online critics of her mom’s short-lived TLC reality show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” back in 2010.

    This is what happens when — while searching for quality educational programs for preschoolers — you routinely switch the channel from Sesame Street to another Ann Coulter diatribe on FOX News.

    Or more likely, the kid has been hanging around Sarah too much.  “Grandma taught me a new word today!”
