LATEST: TV star DUANE 'DOG' CHAPMAN was exposed as a racist by his own son, after he sold a tape of the controversial conversation to a U.S. tabloid for cash.
The star of reality TV show Dog, The Bounty Hunter was heard referring to his son Tucker's Latino girlfriend as a "whore" and a "n**ger" on the tape, which landed in the hands of editors at the National Enquirer.
Chapman Snr. issued an apology for the racial slur on Thursday (01Nov07) after bosses at A+E television suspended production on his reality series.
But shortly after making his apology, it was revealed that Tucker was the person who made the tape public, pocketing himself "a lot of money", according to Chapman's lawyer.
Attorney Brook Hart, adds, "I guess because of whatever level of anger he had of his father, he felt the need to express it in that manner.
"I have never seen anything that suggests (Duane) judges people by the colour of their skin or racial background or anything but on their character.
"Duane lost his composure and made very, very inappropriate remarks, for which he truly regrets."
