Dog Lays Low

No New Word From Any of the Principles in the Matter 

Fans’ Speculation Rife 

DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER-Canceled-UPDATES:

Dog “Duane” Chapman, Day 6 in the continuing story of Dog the Bounty Hunter, the tapes of his cellphone call to his son about his son’s girlfriend. Throughout the tapes, Dog can be heard using the N-word repeatedly, but says that he doesn’t care if the girl is black or not and is more concerned with her character than the color of her skin.

Dog’s spiritual adviser, Tim Storey, then issued statements repeating Chapman’s remorse at his language. Storey also related that for the last year, he’s been working with the Bounty Hunter to clean up his speech in general. Storey is black and testified that Chapman’s use of the N-word was not hate-directed.

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” is first pulled from the air and then production is canceled by the Arts & Entertainment Network. A & E’s statement seems to leave the door open that the popular series might resume at a later date, however.

Chapman, upon the release of the tapes, apologized and expressed the wish to meet with black leaders and make amends. Tamkika Mallory, a member of Al Sharpton’s group called for the show to be off the air at about the same time it was going down. This weekend, Sharpton himself issued a statement which called on Dog to march in an anti-hate demonstration at Jena, LA. No reaction from Dog on the Sharpton proposal.Read rest of story
