You’ll have all heard and read by now about Dog the Bounty Hunter (real name Duane Chapman) having his show cancelled after a private phone call where he spouted racist slurs including ‘the N word’ became very public.
I’m choosing not to use the word here because despite being bandied about quite liberally these days, it is still an offensive term, and shouldn’t ever be used in my opinion.
This video shows Duane on Fox News being interviewed for the first time about the whole sorry case, and having to sit and listen to not only the phone call he made, but also the girl who he was referring to, giving an interview herself.
Tucker Chapman, Duane’s son sold the tape of the conversation to the National Enquirer and he also appears on the show trying to reconcile with his father.
Dog has apologised for what he said, but that doesn’t really cut it. If you use this kind of language, people are going to take a hell of a lot of convincing before they believe you aren’t actually racist.
Seeing him squirm and even cry didn’t make me feel sorry for him. If you do the crime, you have to do the time, isn’t that something Dog would say to all of the criminals he captures for money?
