Single mom and the daughter of the infamous Sarah Palin, Bristol Palin, is taking a Twitter beatdown from celebrities — being called everything from ignorant to a hypocrite — after she harshly criticized President Obama for endorsing same sex marriages this week.
In short, Palin, who said that a marriage needs to be between a man and woman, but doesn’t have a father for her daughter after having pre-marital teenage sex and a baby out of wedlock, said this about Obama: “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” Palin wrote, among other things.
“In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”
The firestorm resultant from Bristol Palin’s unsolicited opinion was swift and severe in Hollywood. Click to see who tore off into Bristol Palin:
