Bristol Palin is being sued by the man who called her mother a “whore” and “the devil”. Why? For defamation of character, of course. Stephen Hanks approached Palin in a bar last year, yelling about his distaste for her mother. Hanks is upset because the entire incident was caught on film by the crew following Palin for her new reality show, airing on Lifetime. Hanks says that he never signed a waiver and his image (and the incident) are now being used in the promos for the show, “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp”. So he’s suing, claiming that this image, along with Palin’s statments in a gossip magazine, are hurting his repuation and have damaged his career. Bristol’s Lifetime promo is below.
