‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ put to sleep (I totally went there.)

Dog the Bounty Hunter has been pulled off the air indefinitely by A&E. Advertisers began boycotting the show after Duane “Dog” Chapman was caught on tape making racially charged threats to his son over the phone. The National Enquirer has the details:

But the makers of Sinus Buster capsaicin pepper nasal sprays have pulled their ads and say they won’t advertise on A&E until the network cancels Dog’s show permanently. In addition, Yum! Brands, Inc. has said it will no longer advertise on the Bounty Hunter. Yum!’s brands include Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC. Another of the show’s advertisers, Dr. Frank’s pain relief, has joined the growing boycott, pulling ads for several of its products.

One of the advertisers even issued a statement that voiced his frustration with Dog:

“They should pull the show completely and never air reruns or anything with Chapman ever again,” Wayne Perry, president of SiCap Industries, LLC, makers of Sinus Buster capsaicin nasal sprays says in a press release.

Okay, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, whatever that’s nothing. Minor leagues. But Sinus Buster? Damn. Dog is screwed. I mean Sinus Buster is the capsaicin pepper nasal spray. When you lose that kind of advertising dough your career is over. Talk about the kiss of death.

Note: This post is sponsored by Sinus Buster. The capsaicin pepper nasal spray. If your nasal spray isn’t practically mace, you’re a giant pussy.

Note: Your dad just wrote me a letter. He says he never loved you. Reason? You didn’t use Sinus Buster. The capsaicin pepper nasal spray. Also, you throw like a girl.

Note: Got a phone call from your ex-girlfriend. Says things didn’t work because you were too much of a wuss to use Sinus Buster. The capsaicin pepper nasal spray. Also, you have a vagina and she’s not a lesbian. It was never meant to be.

    Hasslehoff’s daughter and Dog’s son will breed to produce the reincarnation of Judas Iscariot.

    You totally stole that” Dog put to sleep” line from me… from that post I made on another website… that they never actually published… presumably because the site’s moderators are all a bunch of wusses who found it too “offensive.”

    Kudos for stealing my bad pun and having the courage/bad sense to admit to it.

    Looks like a golden retriever.

    This is THE funniest blog of the day.

    After that I’m totally bummed that I won’t get to see the White Trash crazies picking up methheads and the like. I like my entertainment trashy. See, I’m on this site.

    Damn dumb bastard. Had to take it to the next level and call his son’s girlfriend nasty names. Being mean always bites you in the ass. I don’t care how many times you go to church.

    This is soooo not a big deal and everyone is acting a tad bit F*CK*N STUPID! Someone called me cracker today. No big deal! I am a little flaky and taste of buttery goodness…

  8. Ithe first step is admitting it

    I am Racist,
    the package says my mascara color is negro
    when it goes on clumpy and I rant & rave about.

  9. whitegirl

    damn DOG!
    My AfricanAmericanBoyfriend thinks I’m racist.

    I’m suing DOG The Bounty Hunter for “Racism by Proxy”
    A month ago,
    I told my lover how I admire Dog & Beth they’re a nice couple…I.E..they look like they really love each other , their kids etc…

  10. Joe

    I’m sure FOX will pick up his show. They’ll air it right after COPS.

  11. TV Guide

    Wait…niggas watch A&E???

  12. Shannon

    Why is everyone criticizing Dog? I don’t get why black people can call each other the “N” word and its ok but when someone else does it they are racist? I don’t think that anyone has the right to criticize Dog for using that word when he takes criminals off of the streets every day! Everyone loved his show before this and they will continue to watch it after this is over because i don’t think he did anything wrong and you should all be ashamed of yourself for passing judgment on a guy we all like!! If you want to be ashamed of anyone be ashamed of the person who would do such a sneaky under handed deceitful thing like this to Dog for money!!!! Everyone needs to grow up and get over it he’s not the only one to use the “N” word but they only reason you care is because you see him on TV!!! I’m ashamed of all of you!

  13. J-Sin

    Uh Shannon? They ain’t bringing this fuckers show back just letting you know.

  14. NewOrleansNegroSwimleague

    I think dog should go to rehab, then, while there say he has “Found God”. All Better!

  15. TANISHA

    does this mean all the porn sites my boo watches

    are going to be shutdown?????

    them whitegirls always scream the ‘n’word to the brothras with the big black dicks

  16. Oh no he didn't

    Are you not getting it done in bed Tanisha? Boo thinks about somebody else because you don’t give him much to think about. Oh snap

  17. TANISHA

    #66..well its just I can’t stand bleaching my skin no more 4 him and the wig it keeps falling off when he grabs my hair real hard

  18. Ript1&0

    You ever notice how some of these people only post whenever they can make racist jokes?

    I imagine them scouring all the celeb sites in their underwear just waiting for the chance…..

    Ooooo… somebody said Jews!! Hurry up!!! It’s time now!!!!

  19. jacknasty

    yet if Mel Gibson said it people like Jodi Foster would be publicly defending him.

    anybody really care that a professional bounty hunter has backwards views?

  20. #68'sMOMMA

    so proud of you posting such intelligent words on a ‘S U P E R FI C I A L’
    web site.

  21. Riotboy

    That’s ruff.

    /got nothing

  22. Angie

    I think all of this Dog the Bounty Hunter crap is crazy. It was very stupid of him to do that thought but also stupid of his son as well. Im white…I dont act Black..but I have a lot of balck friends and get called ghetto and I say “nigga” just about every day..why is it black people can call each other “nigga” or “ni–er” but if a white person says it..even to another white person..threats by black people are thrown out. Racism is completely getting out of control in this country now a days..I am 23 years old and I think I have heard more Racism bull crap in this year alone than I have in my whole life!!

  23. BishOP

    Okay this is stupid shit. The man slipped up, bottom line. He said something that he shouldn’t have said. Has he exhibited other behavior that shows him to be racist?

    Do I really care what happens to this guy? Not really. There’s a bigger issue here and it’s the fucking double standards we have in this country. Here we have rappers dropping the “N” bomb in songs and it’s considered “artistic” and socially relevant, and then we have this man who out of anger lashes out. What he did was absolutly wrong, no doubt about it. However, don’t we see the

    However, don’t we see the problem here? Why are we promoting the usage of these hate words in popular media at all? Especially for a word that’s original connotation that is racially charged and crude in the first place. Here’s a new flash Al Sharpton: NO ONE SHOULD BE SAYING THAT WORD AT ALL.

    What you have here is a bunch of corporations jumping on the bandwagon to make themselves look like good corporate citizens to entice you to buy their product. They are vying for your money, essentially your attention. That’s all this shit is, it’s a marketing move.

    Here’s what should happen: This guy should apologize for his statements(whether he meant it or not) publically and make amends and then we should forget about it. By focusing too much on these issues, all it does is stir the pot and create tension between people. Let it go.

  27. jesus h christ

    I love that the sponsors didn’t care he’s a MURDERER but now they’re mad he used a naughty word.

    I guess they’ll move on to give OJ Simpson a show now. At least OJ’s not a racist. Right, Taco Bell?

  28. Igottabemeee

    And no one here is concerned that things they say in a private telephone conversation to a family member can and may be played worldwide for everyone to hear? You’ve never said anything in private that you wouldn’t want blared on television? Me? – daily.

  29. AmeriCanadian

    If you ask me, it’s the landed whale he lives with that eats the Alpo in THAT house…hahah. Anyway, I am so glad to see his nasty ass trailer trash crackhead white trash ass get canned. No more of that shit on TV. YAAAAAAAAAAAY! My crappy day just turned around! :D

    Let’s get real here. Like we all haven’t said things out of anger that we regret later. That conversation was between Dog and his son, and not meant to be heard by anyone else. Dog is a good person who made a mistake. Nobody’s perfect. The world would be a better place if we stop judging others, and concentrate on finding ways to be better people.

  34. Robert

    You people need something better to do with your time. Dog has done more good in his life then any of you have. If he was doing what he is in your town then you would be pissed just because he said something wrong and not to mention he wasn’t even talking to public it was between him and his family and should have stayed that way. You people sit and say worse things then he did and you want to screw up all the good he is doing over you feeling like you have power you people are sick. None of you have the right to pull his show or to even give him a bad name. None of you can even come close to being as good of a person. Get some lives people.

  35. Yvonne

    You folks need something to do to take your mind off throwing rocks at “Dog” He has done more to get the bad guy off the street then any modern day law enforcer. I like him and his family and I think you are a bunch of losers, along with his so-called son. Take about spoiled grapes! I hope he never speaks to that jeek again. Unlike Imus, his thoughts werw auppoaws ro vw private between he and his son. Obviously, his son was looking for a quick buck. I hope he enjoys himself with the loot. In the meantime, he no longer has a Dad or family for that matter. I thought it was illegal to tape a person unless he was informed.! I will continue my respect for Dog whether his program makes it back on TV or not!

    #77 He’s not a murderer

    Yes he is. He did 18 months of a 5 year sentence in 1977 for the murder of Jeremy Oliver. He claimed he didn’t do it, but admitted to being an accessory for not reporting it. Maybe he was innocent, but speaking strictly in legal terms, he’s a murderer as that’s what the law decided when he was convicted.

    goddamnit that’s funny

  41. Lady Sin

    I won’t miss him.

    RIP Dawg…

  42. AmeriCanadian

    Yvonne…get off your high horse, eh? Bounty hunters aint no better than the trash they “arrest.” He looks like a fucking dusthead and he’s been in prison (probably more than once.)

    Guess what? I have never been to prison and I don’t touch drugs…hell, I don’t even smoke coffin nails. Plus, I’m not a fat fuck like his wife. W00t. I can diss him cause he’s fucking white trash (literally and figuratively) and I’m not! Fuck him and his herd of inbred heathen demon spawn and that fucking narwhal he lives with.

  43. Karen Horton

    It is none of our business what The Dog says in private. When blacks stop calling one another the n word then whites should do the same. His son, Tucker, is the loser.

    Behold the demise of freedom of speech. This is a sad day for the bill of rights.

    “I work with a woman who overheard me say that I had been pulled over by a black cop. She asked why I made the distinction and what if I had been pulled over by a white cop would I have said as much? She was right. She basically said that when she hears people making the distinction (either a white stating black or a black stating a white) it’s equal to prejudice in her eyes. Good point really.”

    O thats bs. It is just a way of distinction. Just like if I say a girl with pink hair, it does not mean negativity, that is unless saying “black” is bad. I am not about to be overly cautious with every word I say because of what other people have done. Expecting me to be cautious with my words because I am white, now there is a wrong for you.

    Beth and Dog are the Best show in the “Reality t.v. crap Programming”

  47. JaCKSON WALLACE

    What I want to know is when will these same advertisers boycott shows that play shitty lameass crap rap and hobo R&B music? Noone likes it, except people with 3rd grade educations. It sucks.

  48. Jason

    I just sent a nasty email to webmaster@sinusbuster.com just for fun to tell them what stupid assholes they are.

    Agree with #96

    America needs to wake up and stop being such fucking babies, Im pretty sure when the US economy collaspses we really won give a shit what racial slurs people us.

    Over and Out.

  49. Butch

    FINALLY, Dog had the guts to say what all of us Whites think on a daily
    basis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hope you get a better gig Dog!!
