Dog Begs for The Rev

10/31/2007 7:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DOG CHAPMAN, AL SHARPTONTMZ has learned that Dog the Bounty Hunter has already contacted Rev. Al Sharpton, hoping to explain the racist telephone call Dog made to his son.

We're told The Rev, who is currently preaching in Daytona Beach, Fla., and hasn't heard the tape, is considering having a dialog with Chapman, but will not make his decision until he has a chance to listen.

UPDATE: TMZ has received the following statement from The Rev:
"Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network and the organization's Decency Initiative are unequivocally against the use of the "N" word in any context. While people have the freedom to express themselves in any matter in private, when those private conversations become public, it becomes our responsibility to state, as we always have, that we condemn the use of this word as racist and derogatory. Dog the Bounty Hunter has reached out to Reverend Sharpton who is traveling to promote his March on the U.S. Justice Department on November 16th against Hate Crimes and Racial Attacks and therefore Rev. Sharpton has not had a chance to hear the audio of the remarks. However, until he does hear the audio, National Action Network maintains that is against the use of the "N" word."

He is calling Al Sharpton??? Why??? To get back up??? Al Sharpton is not the speaker for black americans and he is just as racist as Michael Richards, Dogg and everyone else in America...

you have a point #8 but why would he be so stupid to say that over a phone. He should know that 9 times out of 10 if you are in some kind of limelight, your phone is probably tapped by somebody. Somebody is waiting on you to slip up and that was his slip and now he has to explain himself and let the chips fall where they must.

Considering pretty much every black person I know considers Sharpton a joke and embarrassment to the black community I'm wondering that he still has these celebrities fooled into thinking that getting him to accept your "Apology" means anything.

You can take the "Bra" out of the Trailer park, but you can't take the Trailer park out of the "Bra"! What a loser. And to think i didnt want his racist buut to rot in a mexican prison. Everything is fine until your son dates a Black Woman. At least you can blame the destruction of your 5 minutes of fame, your mullet and your Career on "That Black Woman"..LOL what a loser.
At least one of the Chapman's knows a good thing when he sees it. Those Balck Women are FINE! Get with the program Dog! You're missing out!
