A&E reality show star and professional bounty hunter Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman has had his show’s production suspended due to a private phone conversation that went public that contained multiple instances of the “N-word”. He also apologized for the racist rant, saying that regretted using it and, as is common in these situations, insisted that the statement was taken out of context.
Real World To Celebrities, Come In
Some celebs haven’t figured this out yet, anything you say, public or private, will end up on the Internet at some point if it is in the least bit racist. If one harbors such negative emotions toward a group of people or if they just have bad, low class, habits of speech they should work hard to get over them if they value their career. It’s common sense but they ignore it often.
I know some people will say that this is just “political correctness” run amok and so forth. It’s not in my book. In this case, using that word is just a plain old ill-mannered, uncouth, behavior that requires an apology from ’Dog’ and that he needs to work to correct. Political correctness would be insisting that the word not be used in an appropriate historical or character context in a movie.
What do you think about this situation? How does it compare to that of Dr. James Watson’s recent comments? Leave me a comment and let me hear from you.
