Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman has been at the centre of controversy with his racist allegations, and now people close to the TV star have been quick to dish the dirt on his past use of racial abuse.
The first person to voice their concern about the Bounty Hunter’s racist rants is Lyssa Chapman, who was married to the TV star for nine years.
She tells the National Enquirer: “I think Dog is a racist – no question. He ran down every single minority group when I was with him, and n***** was a daily word for him.
"He called Mexican people ‘beaners’ or ‘wetbacks’ and Asian people ‘flangeheads.’ I would tell him not to talk that way in front of our kids, but he just ignored me.”
Chapman also speaks of a disturbing incident with an interracial couple at a grocery store;
“Dog said to the woman, ‘I know that’s got to be your pimp! I know you wouldn’t be fucking him if you weren’t getting paid!’ They were husband and wife, but when the man started to object, Dog just went crazy, screaming at him, ‘I’ll kick your ass.’”
Peggy Munoz, who worked with Duane when he was a bail bondsman recites how her former colleague would approach people in his line of work:
“Dog said, ‘I don’t like to bond out n*****s because they don’t have any money and I have trouble collecting on them. And I don’t like to bond out Mexicans because, well, they just run.’”
And the final blow comes for Dog’s step-daughter Nicole Gillespie, daughter of one of his other ex-wives, Tawnee, who like the others claims that Chapman is racially abusive.
“My mother was half-Mexican, and if they fought, Dog would call her a ‘dirty spic whore’ and a ‘dirty Mexican slut. That’s what he taught his kids was the right way to talk. When they got older, they had to un-learn the racism that Dog taught them. It’s sick. It’s like a disease, and it spreads.”
