Jamie-Lynn Spears got pregnant when she was 16, and 17-year-old Bristol Palin is pregnant now. But according to Jamie-Lynne’s mom, Lynn Spears, the difference in the public reaction to the two girls’ pregnancies couldn’t be more different.
It’s a totally different reaction. It’s as if [Sarah Palin] became celebrated. I mean, the mother, Palin, was celebrated for this. Every woman in the world has applauded her strength and her convictions and poor little old Jamie Lynn—you saw how she was crucified. Everybody did, firsthand … I just feel like it’s been a very hypocritical situation.
What do you think – is the difference in reaction to the girls’ pregnancy news hypocritical? Or do you think there were other factors that contributed to the public’s reactions?
