'Dog' Chapman Makes Amends At Black Toy Giveaway

American TV star DUANE 'DOG' CHAPMAN joined a black advocacy group on Saturday (15Dec07) to spread the Christmas cheer at a toy giveaway in an attempt to dispel accusations of racism. The Dog The Bounty Hunter star was caught up in controversy last month (Nov07) when he was heard referring to his son Tucker's Latino girlfriend as a "whore" and a "n**ger" on an audio tape, which landed in the hands of editors at U.S. tabloid, the National Enquirer. Chapman has since apologised for the racial slur and insists he is not a racist. He appeared with the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND) on Saturday to help hand out presents to disadvantaged children and gave away signed copies of his book, You Can Run But You Can't Hide. Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, the founder of BOND, says, "We don't condone racial slurs, but upon hearing Dog's apology and after meeting with him and his family, we don't believe he's a racist. We also believe that Duane 'Dog' Chapman sincerely wants to make amends to the black community, and deserves a second chance."
