*“Dancing With the Stars” survivor Bristol Palin has offered an apology for comments she and her 16-year-old sister Willow used to attack a schoolmate on Facebook this week.

Without mentioning the homophobic slurs specifically, Bristol posted to her Facebook page Wednesday night: “Willow and I shouldn’t have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize.”

She then pivoted , adding, “On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!”

Willow, who called her schoolmate a “fa*got” for posting a negative comment about her mother’s new TLC show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” has not apologized and has since deleted her Facebook account altogether, according to TMZ.

Jon Stewart weighed in on the controversy last night on “The Daily Show,” basically suggesting that the media coverage was overblown and that children of politicians should remain off limits.
