Dog the Bounty Hunter is certainly one of the most interesting celebrities right now, as he had his own reality television series among other things. He is also known to make some outrageous claims at times.
While speaking to “Entertainment Tonight, Duane Chapman shot down his daughter’s claims that he is a racist and also homophobic as he reminisced about his time in prison back in the 1970s for first-degree murder.
“I have never been a racist. I’m 33.5 percent Apache. But because of over 15 years ago, I have an Achilles’ heel because I used the wrong word.”
Chapman’s A&E show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” was put on hiatus in 2007 due to a leaked phone call that featured him saying he n-word more than six times when referring to his son Tucker’s black girlfriend. He then claimed that he was given the n-word pass by a black tribe during his time in prison.
”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.
My pass expired for using it, but no one told me that.”
Everyone is entitled to their own pinion, even if it is from someone like Duane Chapman as there is no doubt many fans will continue to take offence to what he says on a daily basis.
