Dog the Bounty Hunter‘s vicious racial outburst shocked America, but it came as no surprise to those who have known him for years.

A former colleague, his ex wife, his step-daughter and an ex girlfriend have now come forward exclusively to The NATIONAL ENQUIRER revealing that Dog has been using racist language as long as they can remember. They have all heard it directly from him.

A&E network has pulled his show off the air but has not canceled it. Meanwhile, more shocking examples of Dog’s racism are being revealed.

“I think Dog is a racist — no question,” said Dog’s former wife Lyssa Chapman. Lyssa was married to the fallen Dog the Bounty Hunter star from 1982-1991 and is the mother of three of his children, including Tucker, whose relationship with a black woman prompted Dog’s venomous rant.

“He ran down every single minority group when I was with him, and n—er was a daily word for him,” Lyssa told The NATIONAL ENQUIRER. “He called Mexican people ‘beaners’ or ‘wetbacks’ and Asian people ‘flangeheads.’

“I would tell him not to talk that way in front of our kids, but he just ignored me.”

Lyssa recalled an incident in Denver in which she says Dog lashed out at an interracial couple in a grocery store.

“Dog said to the woman, ‘I know that’s got to be your pimp! I know you wouldn’t be f—–g him if you weren’t getting paid!’

“They were husband and wife, but when the man started to object, Dog just went crazy, screaming at him, ‘I’ll kick your ass.'”

Dog also made his views clear to colleagues.

Peggy Munoz, now a private investigator in Lakewood, Colo., was a former bail bondsman working the same turf as Dog Chapman from 1989 to 2005.

She claims Dog once sat in her office and explained his “approach” to the bail bond business.

“Dog said, ‘I don’t like to bond out n—-rs because they don’t have any money and I have trouble collecting on them.

“‘And I don’t like to bond out Mexicans because, well, they just run.'”

Dog’s step-daughter Nicole Gillespie, daughter of Dog’s ex-wife Tawnee, says she regularly heard hateful language from Dog when she was growing up.

“My mother was half-Mexican, and if they fought, Dog would call her a ‘dirty spic whore’ and a ‘dirty Mexican slut,'” said Nicole.

“I remember playing rap music at the house and he would shout, ‘Turn that n….r s..t off my radio!’

“I don’t think he likes gay people either, and he’s always using the words ‘queer’ or ‘faggot.’

“That’s what he taught his kids was the right way to talk. When they got older, they had to un-learn the racism that Dog taught them. It’s sick. It’s like a disease, and it spreads.”

Gina Mederios was Chapman’s live-in girlfriend for two and a half years, starting in 1995. She told The NATIONAL ENQUIRER: “I think Dog’s a racist, no question. He used the word n….r all the time around the house. I wouldn’t allow him to say it around me, because I wasn’t raised that way.”
