Dog the Bounty Hunter Claims He Has ‘Pass’ to Say N-word And Isn’t Racist
Duane “Dog” Chapman, the reality TV star known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, claims that he got a “pass” to say the N-word from “the brothers” when he was in prison.
The 68-year-old then argued he was not racist and also not homophobic in an Entertainment Tonight interview after his daughter Bonnie accused him of being a bigot last week.
Chapman said, “I thought I had a pass in the Black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem. I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after spending time, 18 months, in Texas, and it was probably three-fourths from the Black tribe. So that was a word that we used back and forth, as maybe a compliment.”
Chapman also argued that he couldn’t be a homophobe because one of his daughters, Lyssa, is lesbian.
Bonnie Chapman said last week that streaming service Unleashed TV dumped her father’s newest show because he used “racial and homophobic epithets.”
Her father has claimed Bonnie is being manipulated by executives at the network.
