Read and Watch: Black Woman Dogged by Bounty Hunter Rejects Apology

Published February 11, 2008

Posted Nov. 6, 2007 – The woman at the center of Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman’s racial tirade, which was broadcast throughout the Web and broadcast outlets all over the country, says she rejects his apology.

Chapman’s A&E cable show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” was suspended from production last week after a telephone call Chapman made to his son was made public.

In the conversation, he demands that his son, pictured above, break up with his Black girlfriend, also pictured above. He uses the word n**ger numerous times and suggests that the girlfriend might reveal that Chapman uses racist language. He later apologized publicly and has sought counsel from civil rights activist Al Sharpton.

The girlfriend, Monique Shinnery, says the matter’s not resolved.

“I think Duane’s apology was pathetic because it was not directed toward us,” she says. “He didn’t personally call (Chapman’s son) Tucker or me to apologize. His attorney, Brook Hart, did. So I, personally, don’t accept it.”

It was later revealed that Tucker sold the recording of his father’s tirade to the media.
