Dog the Bounty Hunter is cancelled

Dog Chapman

Following Duane “Dog” Chapman’s racist tirade, A&E has decided to suspend Dog the Bounty Hunter indefinitely. The network issued this statement today.

“In evaluating the circumstances of the last few days, A&E has decided to take Dog The Bounty Hunter’ off the network’s schedule for the foreseeable future. We hope that Mr. Chapman continues the healing process that he has begun.”

To make matters worse, the recorded phone call was sold to The National Enquirer by Dog’s own son for “a lot of money.” It was the proverbial nail in the coffin for Dog’s career. Oh well, he had a good run and he and his sense of style, best described as Captain Planet meets Native American, will be missed, but not by much. Actually, not at all. In fact, he could be on fire tomorrow and the only thing people would do is quietly walk by, ignoring his screams of pain or, if someone was really, really, REALLY nice, they would pee on him.

Please bring Dog Chapman back on the air. I don’t believe he is racist, this was simply a private conversation between him and his son. Dog does a wonderful job getting criminals off of the streets. I think his apologizes are very sincere and you should place him back on the air. Please remember that Dog is only human and yes humans do make mistakes, but let us not judge him as he will be judged in the end by some one more powerful. I think he will continue to work on this and will continue doing a great for… Read more »

So the man says a bad word and loses his job over it? So the PC, multi-culti, intolerant tolerance folks can rack up another point for themselves on this one… According to all the leading rappers, there’s nothing wrong with the n word. Additionally, this was a private conversation between father and son; so, first, isn’t it against the law to tape someones conversation without their knowledge?, and secondly, doesn’t Dog have some expectation of privacy?

Dog has done a lot of good, and has even treated criminals humanely. I hope that the public and the tv station can forgive him and they bring him back soon.

Who are any of us to cast the first stone?????????

To me this is just a case of some weasel playing “gotcha.” These weasels run around with recorders and minicams just praying that they can really put it to someone. Their whole life seems to be tied up in an attempt to ruin someone else’s. What a bunch of pathetic creeps they are. Also, would someone please tell me why a white American cannot use the same word that black Americans use. If you are annoyed by a word don’t listen to the person. If you are annoyed by a TV show turn it off. If you are annoyed by… Read more »

I cant believe all you racist pigs are making excuses for this man. Get a clue, morons.. who cares if it was a private conversation. Its no longer private, and it shows a racist side of a man who, through his show, has become a public figure. This is not different from a promoter deciding not to carry a racist singer, comedian, or other entertainer because the public has now seen that racist side of them. Its the entertainment business. Get a clue. Once the public sees you’re a racist your image takes a hit. Advertisers dont want to get… Read more »

I think that Dog is a racist!!! Let me give everyone a history lesson; that word was created by a white person (Master) to degrade black slaves. Over time the word has been used on a regular basis; was adopted and is used in context in the black community. For example (black use: hey n***a, white use: you black n****r) It’s a difference!! If whites use this word they are automatically considered racists. Why, because you guys use it in a offensive way. If anyone watched the White Rapper show, there was a white girl on the show and she… Read more »

Fabulous news!!!! He was garbage plain and simple. Lala, I co-sign with you. He got exactly what he deserved. I’m so tired of people runnin’ around using the excuse, “well if rappers call themselves the N-word, why can’t non-black people do it?” Look, it’s wrong either way people!!!!!!!! And besides NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE CONDONE THE USE OF THIS WORD!!! So while it may not matter to some, I guarantee you it matters to the majority and not the very few who fail to understand the pain behind the word. YOU CAN NOT REDEFINE A WORD LIKE THE N-WORD, I… Read more »

This is a perfect example of how society has degraded into a rotting cesspool of ignrance and greed. Dog didn’t do this to himself, his ungrateful son did it to him. As a black man, I take offense to what he said but I can also understand and even empathize with the feelings behind his remarks. He built up a lifestyle for himself and his family and he has strong feeling about what he thinks is in the best interest of protecting what he has worked for. Take a look around and examine the state of what passes for black… Read more »

I believe that racism is still around everywhere yet it is silent. The fact that african americans use the N word does not justify the usage of the word. if anything it allows for others to degrade them as they do eachother. I dont care if they use it as slang and feel its ok to use among eachother but bottom line is to get respect you have to earn it and throwing the word around left and right doesnt help the whole get rid of the N word situation. My son is a quarter black and if i ever… Read more »

A man of God does NOT even entertain the thought of using a racial slur, as that type of language can be hurtful. The appropriate thing would have been to teach your family to NEVER use such slurs, thereby having nothing to hide. The use of this word truly comes from YOUR HEART, as it is a part of your daily life — what YOU truly believe!! It was bound to come to the surface. What you do in the dark, ultimately comes to light.

Are you kidding me?! the man says a million curse words on the air, and that’s fine, but he uses one politcally incorrect word in a PRIVATE phone conversation with his son, who sold him out. I don’t like the word he used any more than the next guy, but seriously, he’s going to lose his career over this? can we say SET UP? this whole thing is just stupid.

I am a white woman with an African American husband. I do not believe that Dog is a racist. I believe people are blowing this thing way out of proportion. How would the rest of us like it if our private phone conversations were recorded and aired for the whole nation? We all say things that can be misconstrued. And being in a bi-racial relationship I understand what he meant by using the word. He is right about one thing, if a black person says it to another black person it is ok, but now matter how cool or in… Read more »

I am White and I think this is just another example of PC causing racism and resentment. My mother was sexually assaulted twice by a Black man. Does anyone think that the N word has never come out of my mouth and my family member’s mouthes? Give me a break. Dog’s conversation was a private conversation that should have not been taped. His little bastard son should have his ass kicked and the show should not be gone. Just a bunch of crap.

I do think he is very wrong, i mean if my son dated a black girl and he pissed me off to a boiling point “NI**ER” would never come from my mouth, its a difference if the man used a word black girl or minority or sum stuff but damn NI**ER is a messed up word that doomed african americans for 400 years come on when is every one finally going to be civilized enough and intelligient enough to have a decent argument!

This is for Bill Johnson. Bottom line Dog’s statement was very hurtful private or not. Do not think that because your mom was assaulted by a black man that the rest of the race was cheering about it. I would have been in line to cut his dick off! It is sad to hear that because of this your family now hates an entire race of people based opon the actions of one individual. The most disturbing part of Dog’s tirade is that he said the children said it. Perpetuating the cycle of hate. I have friends and family of… Read more »

And for everone else there is something wrong with the N word, The H word, The C word, the S word. All of them! Remove them from your talk. Don’t teach it to your kids! Just because rappers say it does not make it right! They are not spokespersons for Black America! that is the music of rebellious youth. Not all black people talk this way and the generalizing of a race is insulting. This is not music they will look back on 20 yrs from now and be proud of such as in the days of motown. they have… Read more »

I can’t believe that nobody is appalled by this bigot except me. As an 8 year old boy I was the victim of this same type of verbal hatred when I was called a dirty little n*gger by a middle aged white woman, not to mention by numerous white classmates. Their actions that not only hurt my young feelings but made me realize that I would never be seen as an equal by some of my fellow citizens. Can somebody please tell me the date that RACISM was eliminated and wiped out because I seemed to have missed that date… Read more »
