'Duck Dynasty': Bristol Palin Blasts 'Hypocritical' Gays

Bristol Palin says gay activists are "hypocritical" to take offense at "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments.

"I think it's so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style," she said in a blog post.

"I hate how the LGBT community says it's all about 'love' and 'equality,'" she continued. "However, if you don't agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others' opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn't support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic."

Palin has denied in the past that she is herself "a homophobic."

"I like gays," she said in July 2012. "I'm not a homophobic and I'm so sick of people saying that. Just because I'm for traditional marriage doesn't really mean I'm scared or anything of anyone else, and I don't hate anybody."

Palin hasn't just been criticized for her opposition to gay marriage: She also made a gay joke during her first run on "Dancing," in 2010.

Another competitor that season, Margaret Cho, said Palin only competed because her mother, Sarah Palin, "forced her to do it."

Bristol Palin denied it in a December 2010 Facebook post, adding:

"You say you 'don't agree with the family's politics at all' but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert."

In November 2010, she apologized on behalf of herself and her then-16-year-old sister, Willow, after Willow used homophobic slurs in a Facebook feud between the sisters and people making fun of their family.
