The daughter of Beth Chapman has been forced to speak out to defend her late mum from cruel trolls on social media just hours after she passed away.
20-year-old Bonnie had been mourning the loss of Beth when she spotted the nasty messages.
“For those talking s*** about my mother after her death, shame on you,” Bonnie tweted.
“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.”
51-year-old mother and grandmother Beth, the wife of Dog The Bounty Hunter, passed away yesterday after spending her last days in a medically induced coma.
Beth had battled cancer for the last two years and was rushed to hospital on Saturday suffering from breathing problems.
On Wednesday husband of 13 years Dog – announced on Twitter that Beth had died and later revealed her poignant final words.
Dog – real name Duane Chapman – told reporters on Thursday: “One of the last things she said [was] ‘It’s a test of my faith’. She had faith and that was it.
“There’s steps you go through when you’re dying. Well, the last step when you’re dying is to accept it, and she said to me the other day, ‘Honey, that last step, I ain’t taking it.’ So go Bethy.”
Duane, who came to fame in 2004 with his and Beth’s reality series Dog The Bounty Hunter, said her very last words were to him and her two daugthers.
She came out of it a few times – ‘I love you,’ and ‘Are you guys all OK? Don’t worry’,” he told the media before breaking down in tears.
“She never accepted it. This is totally unbelievable.”
Beth – real name Alice Elizabeth – even left some things in place to reassure her family she’s still with them in spirit.
“She was a control person – and so not from the grave but from heaven I’m sure, she’s still controlling me,” Duane continued. “I got notes in my pillowcase, on my sink, in my shaving things, you know – she’s still telling me what to wear! I love her so much.”
Beth had been battling cancer for years, having first been diagnosed in 2017
n December that year she was declared free of the disease, but it returned the following year, and Beth had to undergo aggressive chemotherapy to treat it.
In January 2019, Dog revealed the devastating news that Beth’s cancer was ‘incurable’.
This month Beth was placed in a medical-induced coma in Hawaii with sources claiming she was having trouble breathing.
Her family rushed to be by her side and on Monday, Dog tweeted a snap of Beth’s manicured hand from her hospital bed.
On Wednesday he told his Twitter followers that Beth had ‘hiked the stairway to heaven’ and he’d see her on the other side.
