Bristol Palin received death threats after ripping President Obama’s pro-gay marriage pronouncement

Bristol Palin

Bristol Palin picked a fight with the gay community and its supporters when she scoffed at President Obama for consulting with his daughters over gay marriage.

Now the pint sized political pundit claims she's getting death threats because of it.

According to the Daily News, Palin, the former Alaska governor's daughter, posted some screenshots of the hateful comments written on her site, including ones that suggested she 'kill' herself or ones that said 'may death be upon you,' and 'You all, including your son, deserve a slow, painful and miserable death.'

Palin, a 21 year old single mother, claims that the death threats only undermine the critics who are attacking her.

'Around Hollywood, there's lots of concern and great initiatives to try to encourage more kindness in this world,' she wrote. 'Then why do I get so many messages telling me I should die?'

Palin seemed to be blaming Hollywood for the insults she suffered after she suggested that the President was wrong to accept his daughters' views that gay couples deserve to enjoy equality with heterosexual couples.

After offering her opinion that that isn't the case, Palin then claimed she's the victim of 'bullying.'

'Here's a newsflash, guys. Your hate and bullying won't work,' she wrote. 'People see through it, and they don't like to be pushed around. You think it's completely obvious that you're right, but this younger generation is more pro-life than their parents, and voters just keep defending traditional marriage.'

Last week, after Palin sharply criticized Obama for saying his daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, had helped him reach his decision to support same sex-marriage.

Palin — an unlikely defender of traditional marriage, being a single mom who was never married herself — argued that children do best in homes where there is both a mother and a father, although there are no statistics to support this claim.

On Monday, Palin vowed she will not be deterred by the latest threats. 'Keep sending the hate, but realize that hate doesn't win arguments,' she wrote.

The latest scrap will keep Palin in the headlines whilst she gears up for a new reality show about her life called "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp."

The 14-episode show will begin broadcasting on June 19 and will follow the life and times of Bristol and her 3-and-a-half-year-old son, Tripp, from their hometown in Wasilla, Alaska, to Los Angeles, where Palin takes a job with a nonprofit.
