Dog the Bounty Hunter recently made an outlandish claim in which he stated that he has more Black friends compared to Eminem. He said that the “the brothers” gave him a pass for using the n-word and said that the term’s use does not make him a racist.
The popular star passed on these comments in an interview with ET’s Kevin Frazier and pushed back on the allegations from his daughter Bonnie Chapman, who said that her father is a racist and homophobic cheater.
The television personality said that he was never a racist. A phone call between him and his son was leaked where he used the n-word 6 times that got him canceled at A&E. Dog said that he used the n-word freely because he thought he had a pass in the Black tribe to use it like Eminem.
Frazier asked Dog the Bounty Hunter about who gave him the pass and he answered, “the brothers”. While pressed, Dog said that “the brothers” were Black inmates he met when he was behind bars and the n-word got tossed around in what he saw as a compliment.
Dog admitted that his alleged pass had expired but no one informed him. He said that he has more Black friends compared to Eminem, after which, he got ripped by Kevin Frazier.
Bonnie Chapman claims she was not invited to his wedding because she supports BLM. However, Dog the Bounty Hunter said that he supports the movement and is not a racist just because he uses the n-word. He pushed back on claims of cheating Beth Chapman before her death and was defensive the entire time while being grilled on camera.
