It is no surprise that Duane Chapman, the infamous 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' is not well liked. However, one fan has taken it to the extreme. The family has received their fair share of hate mail in the past, but nothing comes close to what they received recently. One internet user sent the family an email that described how they were going to kill him and his entire family. The first email came on the 30th of April 2012 and it seemed like a normal threatening email stating that he would fly to Hawaii and kill him and his family. However, when another email from the same user came days later describing how he would kill them all, that is when the FBI stepped in to investigate.
Celebrities seem to receive a lot of disturbing letters from fans and enemies. However, when it becomes serious, it is good that the law step in and aide in the investigation and catch these sick individuals. The family released a statement earlier this week saying, "The Chapmans are taking these threats seriously and are very concerned about the safety of their family. Duane Chapman said that when the person responsible is found, he will prosecute to the full extent of the law for the threats made against his family. A referral of the case has been made to the FBI in Honolulu." Needless to say, the family is dealing with this threat in strides.
This is one of the many disturbing accounts that celebrities face on a constant basis. Is it fair that celebrities have so much press on them all the time or should they be able to live normal lives? 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' is a reality show that airs on A&E.
