As previously reported by Radar, Dog and Beth's two daughters — Cecily and Bonnie Chapman — were not invited to his nuptials due to a conflict where they accused the reality star of being a racist.

When asked about why his daughters were not invited to the wedding, his then-fiancée said, "As hard as it is and as heartbreaking as it is, we had to make a decision that was very difficult to us," adding, "We've been through hell, him and I, in the past three years...And i am not going to allow our day to be ruined by nonsense."

Shortly after the interview, Bonnie took her frustration with her dad to Instagram by posting the clip with the caption, "I'm deeply embarrassed and disappointed in the man Duane Chapman is today."

This also comes just weeks after Bonnie confessed to a media outlet that she wasn't invited to her dad's wedding due to her involvement with the Black Lives Matter movement.

"Francie's text confirmed the reason I wasn't invited to the wedding is my choice to participate in social justice and BLM protests with the system," the 22-year-old shared in an extended statement on her Facebook page.

During his sit-down interview earlier this week, Dog claimed he had a "pass" for saying the "N" word from the black community, or at least he believed that he did.

"I thought I had a pass in the Black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem, " he shared with the interviewer before adding that it happened while he was serving his time in prison many moons ago. "I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after spending time, 18 months in Texas and it was probably three-fourths from the Balck tribe. So that was a word that we used back and forth, as maybe a compliment. "

The 68-year-old TV personality first went public with Frane in March 2020 before getting engaged two months later.
