In 2007, Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman was heard using the N-word several times in a leaked phone call, and he was asked about it during an interview on Entertainment Tonight, which aired Wednesday, September 1. [Jump to the 1:45-mark]

"I thought I had a pass in the Black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem," said Chapman. "I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after spending 18 months in Texas, and it was probably three-quarters from the Black tribe ... 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. To say a racist name doesn't qualify to make you a racist ... I have more Black friends than Eminem."

Back in 2003, Eminem was heard making racist comments in an old song that was leaked by the Source, which he eventually addressed. The rapper then talked about why he refuses to use the N-word.

"(It's a) word I don't feel comfortable with - it wouldn't sound right coming out of my mouth," said Em in a 2004 interview.

What do you think about Dog the Bounty Hunter's comments?
