It has been reported that police and emergency personnel responded to CBS Television City studio late Friday after a white powder substance and threatening letter was discovered by a member of the "Dancing with the Stars" staff. According to, “multiple” sources claim Bristol Palin was the recipient of the piece of fan mail that contained the white powder substance.

“The L.A.P.D., L.A. City and FBI Hazardous Materials officials responded to a report of a threatening letter containing white powder received at CBS Studios in Los Angeles." The rep continues, "Initial field screening was negative for hazardous substances but will be transported to a regional lab for further testing. A joint investigation is continuing."

According to, an ABC rep stated the white powder was determined to be talcum powder by the LAFD and adds, “Measures were taken to secure the area and ensure the safety of personnel.”
