When Bristol Palin announced her second pregnancy on Thursday, her statement read like somewhat of an apology to her family, friends and fans who she believed would be disappointed by the news. In the wake of her announcement, some people labeled Bristol a hypocrite due to her paid promotions of abstinence after she gave birth to her son Tripp in 2008, and now, the negative reactions have apparently prompted the 24-year-old to set the record straight about her initial post. In the place of her seemingly somber reaction to the pregnancy is a sharp-tongued message for the critics, including Bristol's confirmation that her second pregnancy was planned.
In a Patheos blog post titled My Little Blessing, Bristol wrote, "So here are the things you should all get straight before you continue to mock me, judge me, and talk about me. None of us are perfect. I made a mistake, but it's not the mistake all these giddy a$$holes have loved to assume." She continued, "This pregnancy was actually planned. Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn't go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on."
Bristol's clarification comes as no surprise because she's never been coy about expressing her opinions, voicing her stance (unpopular or not) on everything from same-sex marriage to Miley Cyrus. It's safe to assume she probably already expected some of the backlash when she referenced comments from "trolls" that forced her to make the pregnancy announcement earlier than she'd planned.
As for anyone else who dedicates their two cents towards bashing her, Bristol has a three-word solution for them — "Deal with it."
