Bristol Palin's son has used a gay slur in a newly-released clip from her reality show Life's a Tripp.

The single mother's 3-year-old son is featured in the preview for the Lifetime program calling his aunt Willow a "f*ggot."

Palin and her sister react by gasping and then giggling at the child's outburst, with Palin admitting that she is "doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp… I know he's going to continue to push the boundaries."

The 21-year-old and Lifetime were recently hit by a lawsuit for defamation of character and breach of privacy by Stephen Hanks, a man she had a verbal fight with in a bar while filming her show.
