Naughty, Naughty Willow And Bristol! Watch What You Say On Facebook.

Don’t wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it. — Anonymous

Apparently, Sarah Palin is not the only member of the Palin clan on Facebook. It looks like Willow and Bristol are on there as well and they’re not quite as good at using the medium as their mother:

During the premiere of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” Sunday night — a boy named Tre who went to school with the Palin kids wrote a status update that read, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska, is failing so hard right now.”

The comment sparked an intense response from Willow — who replied on the boy’s wall, “Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I’ve seen pictures of, your disgusting … My sister had a kid and is still hot.”

Willow followed up that comment with another that read, “Tre stfu. Your such a f**got.”

Bristol Palin also got in on the smacktalk — writing a message to Tre saying, “You’re running your mouth just to talk sh*t.”

Eventually, a message board war erupted — and Bristol took aim at another person named Jon — saying, “You’ll be as successful as my baby daddy, And actually I do work my ass off. I’ve been a single mom for the last two years.”

After more users began to gang up on the Palins, Willow dropped another message that read, “Sorry that you guys are all jealous of my families success and you guys aren’t goin to go anywhere with your lives.”

Doh!

First of all, let me just note that even if Willow and Bristol talk like that in private, they shouldn’t be using that kind of language in public, particularly on Facebook, where it’s out there in print for the world to see. That’s advice I’d give to anyone, by the way. I’d also add that it’s wise not to use that sort of language in private either — and I can tell you that from personal experience.

When I was in college, I used to listen to the vilest, filthiest gangster rap you’ve ever heard non-stop. I cursed like a sailor around my friends, too. But, I did at least have enough sense not to use that kind of language in public — so, I thought.

One week-end, I went home with a group of friends and we were staying in a very religious household. The parents were devout Christians and they were meeting most of us for the first time. Everything seemed to go well, but after they left, my roommate said, “I can’t believe you dropped an F-bomb in front of her parents!” I didn’t do it intentionally. It turns out that cursing was so ingrained into my normal speech that I didn’t notice I did it at all. Since then, I’ve gotten out of the habit of using that kind of language privately, in large part, to make sure that I don’t slip up and use it publicly either.

So, I can empathize with Willow and Bristol. Some smart mouthed kid at school is running his mouth about their family and like most people, they want to fire back. Since they are young, immature, and probably don’t spend their days getting into nerd duels in the comment sections of websites, they didn’t do a great job of it.

Hopefully, this experience will do for them what dropping that F-bomb in front of my friend’s parents did for me: It’ll help to prevent making the same mistake in the future.

Last but not least, it’s also important to note that I had the advantage of doing something dumb as a nobody. None of the Palins have that privilege. Because their mom is Sarah Palin and there are legions of perpetually outraged liberals who want to target her children to get at her, a dumb Facebook comment can conceivably end up on the Drudge Report. Hopefully, Willow, Bristol, and the rest of the Palin kids will keep that in mind from here on out.
