Bristol Palin Defends Herself Against Olbermann's 'Worst Person' Attack THR

Bristol Palin defended herself Thursday against an attack from Keith Olbermann, who called her “the worst person in the world” because she preaches abstinence to teens even though she was an unwed teenager when she became a mother, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

The recent "Dancing With the Stars" contestant said on her Facebook page that she won’t let Olbermann,  the host of MSNBC’s "Countdown With Keith Olbermann," distort her message about the difficulties of teen pregnancy and that he is confused about what constitutes hypocrisy, the report said.

“In order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes,” she wrote, according to THR. “Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life.”
