Little Tripp Palin Calls Aunt Willow a 'Fa**ot' on Bristol Palin's Reality Show

"I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp," Bristol Palin admits on her Lifetime reality show Life's a Tripp. And yes, giggling when your toddler calls his aunt a "faggot" is probably not a great way to let him know that's not a nice word.

Look, kids say the darndest things, and it's kind of funny when a child curses. But there's a difference between a precocious utterance of "f**k" and a homophobic slur. The complete lack of shame is especially embarrassing given that there were cameras filming it all — gay-friendly Lifetime cameras, no less.

Hmm, I wonder where Tripp learned to use "faggot" as an insult.

(Readers outside the U.S. who can't view the YouTube clip can watch the video here.)

For all the 'bad' words my children uttered when they where little, and there where not many, such a word as 'faggot' never crossed their lips.  That could be because it never crossed their ears.

Well given the homophobic tirades both of these classy girls went on a few years back it's not difficult to know where this child is learning this word.

Well, I see the classiness is trickling down to the younger generation of Palins.

My kid may have heard some words, (fuck, dammit, shit) but faggot has NEVER come out of anyones mouth around her or not. There are somethings that kids should not hear or should not even be said.

 He could have heard it from them or he could have heard it other places also! My kids have said things we don't say in this house. Where did they hear that?? Oh wait...somewhere else! I watch the show & actually like it! Everyone has some sort of problems when it comes to their children...maybe dicipline is theirs, just as many other parents has problems diciplining their children!

 What if she hears it somewhere else? You can't always shield your child from hearing it somewhere else.

That is very sad...but it is no different than all of these morons and their kids running around calling people "retards".
