After hearing about his little racist rant, A&E, the network that airs his TV show, released the following statement:
“We take this matter very seriously. Pending an investigation, we have suspended production on the series. When the inquiry is concluded we will take appropriate action.”
They probably don’t want to take the same heat NBC took after those Don Imus comments.
Way to go, A&E!

It was about time we got another celeb racist rant on tape!!! Nice to know this sort of behavior is still alive and kicking. And here I was worried we were making progress in this world.
Listen to a portion of a phone conversation between Dog and his son, Tucker. Dog doesn’t want Tucker’s girlfriend, Monique, who is black, to be around because they say “nigger” in the house, and he doesn’t want that getting into the tabs and ruining his career. He claims they don’t mean it in a derogatory way, it’s just what they call black people.
I like calling my little sister “Cacaface.” It’s just what I like to call her. I mean it as a term of endearment, not in a derogatory way. I do not actually believe her head is made of caca. She’s a very bright, girl, it turns out. But she doesn’t like it. It hurts her feelings. She expressed that fact, and, as a result, I stopped calling her “Cacaface.” When I see her, I still think: “Cacaface.” But what I actually say is “Allie.”
Rather than tell your son to get a new girlfriend, maybe just stop saying “nigger.” Is it some sort of verbal tic? No, not for you. So just stop saying it. Jackass.
Here’s the real question: who leaked the tape? Did his son sell him out?
Listen to it here.
Update: There’s a much longer version of the audio here.
