Dog Barks Back -- I'd Kill Myself for Forgiveness!

11/7/2007 10:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Dog has only one excuse for dropping the N-word in a leaked phone message -- "I thought I was cool enough to be able to use" it.


Duane "Dog" Chapman was on "Hannity & Colmes" last night for his first interview since his son sold tapes of an N-word littered rant to the National Enquirer, and tried his best to defend himself against and apologize for the hate-filled tirade.

Chapman will continue his tour of contrition tonight, in an interview with Larry King.

>Racism works both ways, people. I don't think anyone is qualified to comment on it until they've been locked up in a penal institution. And I also think your "holier than thou" attitudes would change if you ever were. If you ever want a real good dose of what blacks think of whites, go commit a crime & get your sorry butt sent to jail. You'll find out.

I for one am tired of being held accountable for the sins of people I never knew who lived over a century & a half ago. But I'm also realistic enough to know that this hatred will never end for many on both sides.

You politically correct morons need to wake up & understand that you cannot change the way other people feel inside by using peer pressure. This was a private conversation between 2 family members. If not for Chapman's son being a class A jerk, you wouldn't even be writing on this. I hope he disowns the son completely & pursues charges of illegal wiretapping. How many of you could withstand the scrutiny of having your conversations taped & then broadcast to the world???

Let me just say that two wrongs do not make a right!! Some of you people in your comments are calling Dog white trash, redneck, trailor trash...etc. Aren't those racial slurs?? What gives you the right to be a racist and then crucify someone else for doing the same thing? Do you people even think before you comment? Has there ever been a day in YOUR life that you haven't been angry and said something YOU regret? If you say no then your a liar, and YOU need Jesus!! And when you realize that you have hurt someone in anger, do you not ask for forgivness? Should you be denied forgiveness? Everyone is entitled to make mistakes, we are all human. The important thing is he has realized his mistake and is man enough to ask for forgiveness. Instead of name calling, critizing, and judging Dog, you should pray for him!!

Good riddance. Not so much for the "N" word comments, that was supposed to be private, but for the most unprofessional group of misfits in the bounty hunting industry. I saw an episode where they put their daughter up to setting up a guy, then, getting bent out of shape when she got hurt by him. They all had to be systematically restrained because the guy hit her, when they put her in harms way to start with. They should have looked in the mirror on that one. This show is a big steaming load of crap and gives me goosebumps of embarrassment for them. What a train wreck. They don't even know how bad they look.

Much ado about nothing. He made those comments in what he thought was a private conversation. It is not like he was on his show making those comments or out in public shouting them. If he had known it was being recorded he would not have made those comments. His son is wrong, bringing his own father down for a few bucks.

He really only owes the girlfriend an apology, those comments were directed towards her. I'm pretty sure he isn't the only person in America using the N word at home.

In the middle    

It is a fact people whom use drugs lie and will do anything to get attention and to make themselves look important and do not think twice about ruining someones life, they are unhappy low lifes whose every word should be discarded with the trash they are. The enquirer is all make believe and a joke as everyone with half a brain knows. His son and his girl friend whom did this to him are also low lifes and anyone whom would do that to their father is not worthy of having a father, if his father did not care about him he would not have been looking out for his best interest and what he said to his son would happen in fact did. Maybe Dog was drinking at the time, everyone says stupid things they regret, everyone has the right to privacy and I think he should sue is son and that family wrecker so called girl friend for violating the 4th amendment to say the least, who cares if he said this stuff, it is so gross the way these snakes from his past pop up to stick knifes in his back when they have a chance to do it Most of tv today is fiction anyway and dog and his family { real family} make a nice show that is interesting.
I suppose all these low life's are getting paid for making these statements.
I for one do not believe any of them.
Take a poll and I bet itleast 99 percent will say that they have said something they regret when drinking.
You are all attacking the wrong Chapman family member here.
It is a good thing Beth is a strong smart woman and can see through all of the B>S>
It is s a shame that people can do this to each other and get away with it, Dog needs to turn the table ASAP against his son and girlfriend and sue them and put them on the defense!

#28 Every dog has its day

For a world traveler, you sure have missed the low spots. Try American prisons for your next vacation. There, you will hear blacks use the N-word on an HOURLY basis - if not more frequently.

And while you're at it, try listening to a little rap music. You'll find MANY instances of blacks using the word also. Are you white? Might I also suggest that you take a stroll in Any of the low-income housing projects in any major U.S. city? Again, you'll find many instances of blacks calling each other the N-word. They'll also have a few "color-less" names for your pale arse too.

I find it amusing that blacks can call each other this name on a regular basis, but when a white person utters it - they all band together & make lots of noise & try their best to look appalled. And then the Sheltered, middle-class whites & wanna be's jump on the bandwagon, because they have no clue how it really works in the Real World of the average black man.

Is the N-word politically correct? Hell no. Has it become an ingrained part of black & white American vocabulary? Hell yes. Stop sitting there looking stupid & get back to what you were doing Before you turned your computer on for the day.

I stand behind him and his family 1,000%, If we worried more about the homeless, insurance for kids, getting our troops home safely, or finding a cure for cancer, aids, etc and a little less about what comes out of the mouths of others we would all be a little better off. http://www.petitiononline.com/dogontv/petition.html

I am not a fan of his but I will defend his right to say whatever he wants in a private conversation. If A & E or whatever channel cancel him for a private conversation, shame on you. Oh, and let me at that son of his for turning on your parent. Give me a few minutes alone with him - he wouldn't do that again you can be sure.

WHAT?    

GET OVER THE PAST IN THE WAY THAT WE, IN 2007 ONLY HEARD IT WAS!

WRONGS CAN BE MADE INTO RIGHTS, LESSONS. CHANGING IT INTO AN ADVANTAGE FOR ALL TO MARVEL WITHIN AND BECOME GLORIFIED UNDER UNITY AND WITH MUCH GREATER STRENGTH FOR THE REAL ENEMY; BECAUSE IT'S NOT ME.
TOO MANY ARE BEING FOOLED INTO BELIEVING THAT I AM.
THE TERRISTS THAT SEEK TO DESTROY ALL AMERICANS,
ARE THE REAL ENEMY.

YOU ARE NOW IN 2007, FIGHTING IN THE WRONG WAR.

He thought he was cool enough to say it??? Huh?

He said, "If Lyssa came home with a Black man we would all say....F-you!" Unless he was trying to fit in with the KKK, that was NOT COOL.

It's time for Dog to man-up and accept the consequences of his actions.
