Dog the Bounty Hunter has been called a racist by his own daughter, but Dog says he was given a pass to use the n-word by his Black homies.
"I have never been a racist—I'm 33.5 percent Apache—but because of over 15 years ago, I have an Achilles' heel because I used the wrong word," he told Entertainment Tonight. "I thought I had a pass in the Black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem."
He was asked who gave him the pass.
"I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after spending time, 18 months in Texas, and it was probably three-fourths from the Black tribe," Dog says. "So that was a word that we used back and forth, as maybe a compliment. My pass expired for using it, but no one told me that."
His daughter Bonnie claims her dad is a racist and has not changed.
"I have expressed time and time again my ever-growing disappointment in my father's progression into his old racist ways," she wrote on Facebook.
