Dog the Bounty Hunter, also known as Duane Chapman, has claimed he has a ‘free pass’ to use the N-word, according to reports.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 68-year-old said he’s ‘kind of like Eminem’ and is allowed to say the term.

He explained: “I have never been a racist. I’m 33.5% Apache. But because of over 15 years ago, I have an Achilles’ heel because I used the wrong word.”

When asked why he feels he is an exception, he replied: “I thought I had a pass in the black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem.”

When questioned further about who exactly gave him the ‘pass,’ he replied: “The brothers… I had just gotten out of in 1979 after spending time, 18 months in Texas and it was probably three-fourth from the black tribe.

“So that was a word we used back and forth, as maybe a compliment. My pass expired for using but no one told me that.

“To say a racist name doesn’t qualify to make you a racist.”

However, interviewer Kevin Frazier did not agree with his comments.

He said: “If you use that word, if you use it in your regular everyday life, it makes you a racist.”

The interrogation didn’t end there, as Dog was also asked whether his daughter was telling the truth when she claimed he had used homophobic language.

Outraged, he stated: “Would I die for a gay or black man? I would lay down my life.

“She’s been fed what to say. I have three men on my staff that are gay. My daughter is gay, Baby Lyssa. I don’t understand why anybody would ever say that.”
