Dog the Bounter remorseful for racial slurs
As sad as this is for me to report, Dog the Bounty Hunter Chapman seems to be in some deep shit! Dog has been one of my favorite reality stars for a while, but after hearing about his racist tirade I am starting to doubt my loyalty to the God-fearing bounty hunter.
The National Enquirer has obtained a shocking audio tape in which Chapman drops multiple N-bombs on what seems to be a racist tirade against his son's black girlfriend.
Dog the Bounty Hunter who is normally known for his 'do good' attitude rattles on for nearly 8 minutes in this undated telephone conversation claiming that his son Tucker will be fired from his bounty hunting job if he doesn't dump his black girlfriend Monica.
Since the tape was released on the Enquirer's website, Chapman has reached out to his African American pastor and Rev. Al Sharpton.
The Dog's Reverend Tim Storey came to his defense in an exclusive interview with TMZ.blog.
"I was shocked, because I don't know that to be Duane." He went on, "I felt that he had to be accountable to what he said. When I asked him what took place, why he said it, he said that he was angry with his son about many things."
Pastor Story said, "What shocked me was that he used the N word. I know he's not a racist. He's been to black churches with me to help inner-city kids."
Rev. Sharpton wasn't too quick to take the Dog's apology. His people released this statement:
"Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network and the organization's Decency Initiative are unequivocally against the use of the "N" word in any context. While people have the freedom to express themselves in any matter in private, when those private conversations become public, it becomes our responsibility to state, as we always have, that we condemn the use of this word as racist and derogatory. Dog the Bounty Hunter has reached out to Reverend Sharpton who is traveling to promote his March on the U.S. Justice Department on November 16th against Hate Crimes and Racial Attacks and therefore Rev. Sharpton has not had a chance to hear the audio of the remarks. However, until he does hear the audio, National Action Network maintains that is against the use of the "N" word."
A&E has stopped production on the reality show. They also released a statement:
"We take this matter very seriously. Pending an investigation, we have suspended production on the series. When the inquiry is concluded we will take appropriate action."
Things aren't looking too good for the Dog braw.
