Advice tip #1: Don’t make racist rants.
Advice tip #2: If you’re a semi-celebrity, advice tip #1 goes double.
Advice tip #3: If you really feel the need to get all Archie Bunker, for the love of God, don’t get caught on tape.
Too bad Dog Chapman, star of Dog The Bounty Hunter, turned out to be into racial slurs. The National Enquirer obtained tapes of Chapman calling his son’s girlfriend a “n*****” and asking him to keep her away from his film crew:
“I don’t care if she’s a Mexican, a whore, whatever. It’s not because she’s black, it’s because we use the word n- – – – – sometimes here […] “I’m not going to take a chance ever in life of losing everything I’ve worked for, for 30 years, because some f- – -ing n- – – – – heard us saying n- – – – -. […] It’s that we use the word n- – – -. We don’t mean, ‘You f- – -ing scum n- – – – – without a soul… We don’t mean that s- – -, but America would think we mean that.”
As you might expect, A&E has taken Dog off the air and is now in damage control mode.
