Duane ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ Chapman was just forced to address a nasty online rumor that he was dead apparent suicide. Dog reacted to the story after a fake news report appeared to be legitimate reporting from the BBC.
The report has been making its way around social media, and it includes a message alongside a picture of Dog that reads, ‘Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman Died of SUICIDE After Depression Attack On His Sickness.”
The picture also includes the text, “R.I.P.” Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman (1953-2019)” The report appears to be from the BBC news. Of course, it is fake, and Dog wants everyone to know he is alive and well.
But, the news went viral enough that Dog felt he should address the situation himself, so he posted the fake report alongside the message, “Not so fast HATERS.”
This is not the first time Chapman has had to address rumors of this nature, he had to clarify this rumor one other time in the past few months. For some reason, people online keep spreading the false rumor he has died.
Fans of the reality star were crushed after reading the news online, only to realized it was a fake report and they’ve taken to Instagram to send the Dog messages of support.
“Dude the article scared me until I realized I just saw you a few a weeks ago in 2020…Haters going to hate,” one person said. Another added, “Why does this keep happening? Like they’ve tried to say you’re dead more than any other celebrity. So annoying.”
Many are getting very frustrated with the rumors of the ‘Dogs Most Wanted’ star and are letting people know how they feel about it, “Man.. they are so quick to try and hack you out of life now aren’t they!!? This really needs to stop.. I mean.. nothing like waking up each morning an seeing online that you’ve passed away,” one fan wrote.
As we reported, Dog The Bounty Hunter DID admit he considered suicide after his wife Beth’s death from throat cancer. “I just hope that I don’t live very much longer without her, because now she made the first step, she’s through the gate,” he said on the show.
He continued, “She paved a way for me. I want to take a g d pain pill so bad. I feel like if I did something to myself right now and passed away suicidal and I got to heaven and was like, ‘Hi honey,’ and would she go, ‘You d a why would you do that?’”
As you know, Dog has also had his fair share of medical issues in the past few months after suffering a pulmonary embolism. But, he wants the world and his fans to know he is ALIVE and WELL!
“I still can’t believe someone made this up this makes me so mad!!!” a person commented on Instagram.
“Who says these nasty things when someone is alive? OMG. This is not funny. My heart dropped! Jesus.”
Dog’s fans online put it perfectly on this one, “Wow! They have nothing better to do with their lives so they make up false stories about people for fun.”
Bottom line: Dog is alive and well, and if you are going to make up rumors online about somebody, know that if you choose the Dog he is coming for you!
