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.’
“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:
For those talking shit 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.”
