Duane Chapman (aka Dog the bounty hunter) is in trouble for using the N-word and telling his son that he had to break up with his (black) girlfriend if he wanted to work for Dog or be welcome at home.
From portions of a phone call being played on the news (which apparently his son recorded and sold to the National Enquirer), Dog appears to want his son to break up with his girlfriend because she’s black. But if you listen to the whole thing, he’s actually just says “We sometimes use the N-word around here. I don’t want some F-ing N-word to wreck our show because she hears us say 'N-word' and sells that info to the National Enquirer.”
Aaaaahhh. So it’s not that she’s black at all. It’s just that she’s black and she may hear Dog’s family using the N-word. So that’s okay then.
Dog further explains his use of the N-word by saying that he *doesn’t* mean “you soul-less N-word”, he just means… something else, I’m not sure what.
In a bit of cognitive dissonance, Dog’s lawyer said “I’ve known Duane for 7 years; I’ve never seen anything that suggests that he judges people by the color of their skin or their racial background or anything but on their character.”
Oh, I see. Other than that phone call, you mean…
