Dog Leashed -- A&E Pulls "Bounty Hunter"

11/2/2007 6:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Things keep getting worse for America's favorite bounty hunter, just days after a taped hate-filled tirade was released.

A&E has now pulled "Dog the Bounty Hunter" from the air indefinitely. "In evaluating the circumstances of the last few days, A&E has decided to take `Dog The Bounty Hunter' off the network's schedule for the foreseeable future," the network said in a statement Friday. "We hope that Mr. Chapman continues the healing process that he has begun."

Officials for the network said the series, one of the network's top-rated programs, has not been canceled. Yet.

What a lousy thing for a son to do to his father. I hope he is totally cut out of the family and will. The career of a hard working man totally ruined because of a private phone call between father and son. The son should be ashamed!

Big deal, he'll just sign with another network, and A&E knows this....

This is just a dog-and-pony show to make A&E look like they care about something more than ratings......

How bout Spike TV? Gotta be some redneck station out there.... He could do a show on hunting down his sons' azz.....

If I spoke to anyone the way Dog spoke to his son, I would be fired too.

A&E did what was right. They seem like a reputable cable network and wouldn't put up with this sort of garbage. I didn't read the conversation and I don't care to, but unless this type of speech is part of your everyday language, people don't just accidently slip up and call someone a racial slur. It's deliberate. Saying your sorry and that you have "aloha" for African American's is just a way for him to try to smooth over his actions and it's not sincere.

Sadder yet is that it was his own son who sold the conversation to the tabloids.

His career is likely the least of Dog's worries. Looks like his son is a real S.O.B for doing that to his own dad with the soul purpose of destroying him.

I know we all have used the N word at sometime or another.
I also tnink African Americans have used many terms calling down whites.
What's the difference??
Just as long as we believe in equality names don't matter much.
If dog is not a act. Then he has done much good also.
Personally i would not appologize to anyone.
FREE SPEECH IS OUR RITE!!
This will get the PIMP Al Sharpton on TV. He the iggest racit i have ever seen or heard.

Give the guy a break. Everybody says unkind things in the heat of the moment. Why do people expect perfection when we are all just humans? Look in your own mirrors and tell me you don't get nasty once in a while! Big deal!!

Seriously - is there anyone who could stand up to the scrutiny of having personal and private phone conversations played for the whole world and your employer? I'm not saying what he did was right - I don't use that type of language myself, but can't we all run out and buy any rap CD and hear "that word" used over and over and over and over plus a whole lot more? Where is the outrage there? We idolize 50 Cent, but doesn't he say much worse for pay and not just in personal phone calls? Come on!! Wake up, people!! your "outrage" is seriously misplaced.
