Just two days after Beth Chapman’s passing, her daughter is left fighting off negative comments about her parents.

As Dearly previously reported, Beth passed away after a two year battle with throat and lung cancer. She was just 51 years old.

Beth and her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, rose to fame thanks to their many reality shows, including WGN’s “Dog’s Most Wanted,” which followed their lives as bounty hunters.

Chapman said of his wife of 13 years after her passing:

“When she had an attack, I didn’t know anything to do but say, ‘In Jesus’ name,’ and hold her. And when I said, ‘In Jesus’ name,’ she said, ‘Say it again. Say it more.’ And then she told the girls and everyone with her mouth and stuff she came out of it a couple of times, ‘I love you’ and ‘Are you guys all okay? Don’t worry.’

He added:

“I loved her so much. As Lazarus lay, Jesus said, ‘He’s not dead, he’s sleeping.’ My final words are Beth isn’t dead, she’s sleeping. I hope I’m not just talking to myself. I hope there is a God and if there is I’m gonna see my honey again.”

Now, her daughter Bonnie is slamming those who are leaving negative comments about her mom on Instagram.

Shortly after Bonnie shared a photo of her holding Beth’s hand while she lay in her hospital, she shared this statement on Twitter:

She wrote:

For those talking sh*t about my mother after her death, shame on you. My mother was a person and doesn’t deserve to be degraded because of ANY of her or my father’s past. My mother fought for women’s rights and was the kindest woman.

Bonnie later added that she “never thought I’d lose my mom at 20. I told her I thought she had a couple years left, but in her eyes she disagreed.”

    I love watching dog the bounty hunter. I wish I would of got to meet Beth, she was so funny, loving and caring. I’ve been watching the show on Pluto tv before I even knew anything about her in the hospital. I started to cry on one show where they celebrated their anniversary on horseback. I would love to meet the rest of the family someday and pay my respects to Beth. May she RIP and fly high with the Lord and watch over her family.

    Don’t let the hate and negativity of others get to you. Your family was your mothers world. She wouldn’t want you bothering with negativity from anyone. Your mother was very passionate about women and their rights. I admired her for that. I have enjoyed many yrs of watching your family on tv. It saddens me deeply to hear of your mothers passing. My condolences to you and your family during this difficult time.

    I admired Beth Chapman for what she accomplished in her short life. She was a beautiful woman both inside & out. She was strong, courageous, God fearing, loyal, loving & compassionate. She was taken much too soon & now her family is left to mourn. I pray that God gives comfort to Duane & the children. Beth is now free from pain & can soar with the eagles. To the people with their negative comments, may you rot in hell.

    How dare you people. This makes me so disappointed in the world today. A wonderful woman who had fought for us in ways of the law to keep people safe . Thus is how you treat her. What the FK? This world needs more women like Beth Chapman she was wonderful her family is amazing. She will be missed dearly. The love that her daughter and grandchildren had for her. She was unbelievable. Great heart wonderful spirit. May God shame those who bad mouth good people. Even though I never met the Chapman family I watched them on TV. My god watch over the Chapman family always. R. I. P Beth wr love you.

    First of all let me say I am sorry for your families loss. To the negative remarks; if your one of those people didn’t your mother teach you if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything? Let these people grieve in peace!
