Wow lolhttp://tv.rightcelebrity.com/?p=5451 said:In an extreme show of utter frustration, Steve Cowan, a 67-year-old man from Dane County, Wisconsin, shot his television with a shotgun after Bristol Palin’s performance this week on DWTS.
Despite having the lowest score this week, Bristol Plain and her partner Mark Ballas avoided elimination and we said goodbye to Brandi and Maks. Nobody was more upset about this than Steve Cowan, and his television paid the price.
After becoming irate following her last-place performance Monday, Steve Cowan found his shotgun and unloaded a round right into his TV. During the commotion, his frightened wife managed to slip out and alert authorities. After a 15-hour stand with a SWAT team, Steve Cowan was finally brought into custody.
According to his wife, Cowan felt that Bristol Palin was a terrible dancer and was angry that she was only on the show, and continuing to avoid elimination, because of her mother, former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. She also revealed that her husband is being medicated for bipolar disorder and has been under stress recently. Mr. Cowan is facing second-degree endangerment charges and could face up to 10 years jail time and a $25,000 fine if he is convicted.
This isn’t the first time this week that Sarah Palin’s children have been making the news. Her other, lesser-known daughter Willow recently got in some hot water following an alleged homophobic rant on Facebook after some other kids made comments about the Palin’s new show on TLC, “Sarah Plain’s Alaska”.
I’m not one to disagree that Bristol Plain may still be on DWTS because of her mother’s political following. You’re not going to avoid elimination with the lowest score without an insane amount of viewer’s votes, so she’s getting an influx of support from somewhere! But it certainly falls short of making me want to shoot my television. I like watching TV way too much for that!
What do you guys think of Steve Cowan shooting his TV because of Bristol Palin? Do you think she should still be dancing on the show? Leave us some comment love and let is know, and check out some video of the performance that made this man shoot his TV below!
