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.

BITTER    

At this point, knowing that the son recorded the conversation AND SOLD IT to the tabloid, I'm not even sure it IS a racial issue as much as it is the dysfunctional relationship of a father and son.

No way the man gonna heal. He was born hating the man with color and that was forged in the prison. Now he knows, he hates all people of color.

i think people need to get over this. its a real shame his show was pulled from the airwaves. its something that didnt need to happen to such a wonderful man who helped practically everyone and anyone. it doesnt serve him right that this happened. it did not need to happen at all to him.

if sharpton kept his nose out of his business his show would not have been needed to be pulled, but i suppose the anal people still exsist, right anal people???? come on all you ANAL PEOPLE, get a life!!!! if this is all you have to worry about, you have no lives you losers!!!!

people need to understand, its the way he was raised. if you cant undertand this then you need to get a life!!!!

I agree what Dog did was wrong but to kill his show I think is a bit much. how
many time do you here blacks say the n word but thats o.k. ? get real this was
between father and son not the world . how many of us would look just as bad
in the heat of the moment with a family member. or a heated phone call A&E
needs to have a reality check. we love you Dog & we want you back

Networks over reacting again. When will people stop letting letters offend them. So what if he says N***a? So what if anyone says Ch**k or G**k or B****r?? What's the big friggin deal? He apologized and now lets move on. Love or hate his show, he doesn't deserve to be canceled. And Imus didn't deserve to be kicked off radio. Just a bunch of overly sensitive people, overreacting to nothing-again. And they will do it again and again if the networks fold to their demands. By the way Networks-those people who get their panties in a bunch over nothing do not speak for everyone.
