TMZ tracked down the guy who hurled profanities at Bristol Palin in West Hollywood. Stephen Hanks was unrepentant for his tirade against Palin, in fact, he “felt good to get it off his chest.” Hanks just happened to be at the bar, and didn’t realize he was being videotaped. He denied he was an actor or a plant, just a person who was very passionate about his beliefs. He said he thought the Palins were “dangerous” and “trash from Wasilla.”
When questioned by the interviewer whether it was acceptable to heckle a 21-year-old girl, Hanks said she was fair game because she was an adult and was in the public eye. Hanks was taken aback by her accusation that the reason he didn’t like her mom was because he had to be a homosexual, which he deemed “very derogatory.”
“She comes from a home where gays are made fun of, where blacks are probably made fun of,” Hanks fumed. “She’s a racist homophobe, in my opinion.”
“Some people may think I crossed the line, some people may think I didn’t go far enough,” Hanks added.
