There might have been 4.96 million people tuned in to the premiere of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" Sunday night, but Sarah Palin's 16-year-old daughter Willow appeared to be on Facebook, where she used an anti-gay slur to counter a critic of the show.

During the premiere, a person named Tre wrote, "Sarah Palin's Alaska is failing so hard right now." The remark prompted Willow to respond "Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I've seen pictures of, your disgusting ... My sister has a kid and is still hot." She followed that up with another comment that read, "Tre stfu. Your such a f-----."

Screengrabs of the Facebook accounts block out the last names of Willow and Tre, so there is reason to question the authenticity. However, Bristol Palin (who chimed in to the argument between Tre and Willow) posted an apology Tuesday night on her Facebook account. "Willow and I shouldn't have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize. On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!"
