Disagree: Bonnie Chapman, daughter of Dog The Bounty Hunter, claims her support for Black Lives Matter was part of what led to her feud with her father
Bonnie still works with UTV on her own show The System, which focuses on deconstructing systemic racism.
And that connection seemed to make things tense between the family this weekend when Chapman’s fiancée, Francy Fran, sent a text message to Bonnie accusing her and her sister Cecily of betraying their father by working with the network.
“Bonnie, I would first say stupid playing doesn’t suit you at all, you are way smarter than that,” Fran wrote in a text given to TMZ.
And Cecily’s statement is absolutely not true!!!! We love how both of you are similar in different ways to your mother.
So let’s not beat around the bush, you and Cecily know you weren’t invited to the wedding because you both lived under the same roof with people who stabbed in the back, robbed, lied, manipulated, tarnished his name and tried to ruin his career.

You and Cecily have chosen to align yourselves with this, and my job is to protect Dad anyway!!! I love you Bonnie, and I really hope with all my heart that you and Cecily find what you’re looking for and find happiness, true happiness in your life.
The dog – a father of 13 – has denied his daughters’ allegations that he was kicked out for using racist/anti-gay language, calling the accusations a “false” attempt to mess around with the wedding.
He also told TMZ that his daughters are being “prepared” by his suspicious former co-workers, pleading: “Please pray for Bonnie and Cecily to be freed from whatever these people are carrying.”
“Despite the sadness we feel this rift in our family, Francie and I are looking forward to our wedding next week with the rest of our family and close friends.”

Doug and Fransi replied that they “like Cecily and Bonnie very much” but “would like to keep any family issues private.”
