Bristol Palin is sparking a social media backlash for disagreeing with President Barack Obama's support of same-sex marriage.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant, author and unwed mother said in her blog: "We know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home."

The daughter of Sarah Palin also commented that Obama's decision was influenced by his daughters, Sasha and Malia.

"I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren't younger, or perhaps today's press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox," Palin wrote.

Reaction to her comments came swiftly.

Samantha Ronson, celebrity DJ and former girlfriend of Lindsay Lohan said of Palin's mother/father comment, "really bristol palin? how's your kid doing?"

Jersey Shore star JWoww first tweeted, "Bristol should keep her uneducated ignorant mouth shut. If Ur living in the past u wouldn't have a kid w/out marriage #hypocrite. It's 2012!"

She followed up with another tweet saying, "My best friend will get married one day and not just have civil union with his man. Stop hating people."

Openly gay blogger Perez Hilton tweeted, "I think I need to give Bristol Palin a good massage. Girlfriend needs to RELAX!!!"

Sherri Shepherd of "The View" commented on Twitter, "Sara Palin educated Bristol ... and not blaming Bristol, but I'm blaming Bristol being young & not exercising good judgment."
