Sarah Palin slams haters of daughter Bristol Palin
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has slammed the “haters” who sent her daughter Bristol Palin threatening packages on the set of “Dancing With The Stars” last week.
According to reports, former vice presidential candidate and proud mom Sarah Palin took to her Facebook account on Monday to address the anonymous sender of the “mysterious white powder” to her daughter Bristol Palin at the all-star season set of “Dancing With The Stars” in California.
The suspicious package reportedly had a note threatening the “Dancing With The Stars” producers if Bristol Palin is not removed from the dancing competition.
“These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keepin’ on keepin’ on?” 48-year-old Sarah Palin wrote.
Media outlet TMZ reports that the FBI and the Los Angeles Police Department have confirmed that they are currently investigating a mysterious package that was sent to the Hollywood set last week along with the threatening message targeting the 21-year old contestant.
A similar threatening package was sent back in 2010, which was also addressed to Bristol Palin when she first appeared on “Dancing With The Stars.”
“Silly critics — after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating!” mother Sarah Palin added.
The former Alaska governor traveled to California on Monday to cheer and show support for her daughter in the competition’s third week. Bristol Palin and her partner, Mark Ballas, face “double elimination.”
A get-out-the-vote pro, Sarah Palin urged her supporters to dial in for her daughter.
“I’ll be sure to post the call in number and voting instructions later today before the event,” Sarah said. “It means a great deal during this fun and highly competitive event, and it’s sure appreciated!”
For her part, Bristol Palin, who stars in her own reality-television program with her toddler son “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Trip,” appears to attribute the threats to her new-found fame.
“Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!” she said, according to Sarah Palin.
