Twitter Reacts To Beth Chapman’s Death SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/WfsAkSb923k : Beth Chapman, the former star of Dog the Bounty Hunter and wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman, sadly passed away in the early morning hours of Wednesday, June 26th, 2019, after her long battle with throat cancer. She was 51.
Her husband confirmed the tragic news on Twitter, writing:
“It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
Initially diagnosed in September 2017, Beth Chapman had vowed to fight the horrible disease. According to Radar Online, she wrote her friends a letter that read in part:
“I’ve stared down the devil more than once in my life but I’ve never faced a real life or death decision. My life has never been easy, and I surely don’t expect it to start now. Still, I’ve never been a victim and I won’t let cancer beat me.”
Two months later, during a two-hour A&E special called Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives, the couple received a phone call from a pathologist… who claimed that Beth was cancer-free. But after she underwent emergency surgery to remove a blockage in her throat in November 2018, doctors discovered the cancer had returned.
The next month, Duane told Us Weekly:
“Beth will not take anything the doctors want to give her. Even the doctor told me he doesn’t want her to have seizures if the pain is that bad, but she won’t do it. […] She takes over-the-counter pain meds. She will not take anything prescription.”
Around that time, the Chapman family’s attorney confirmed to Us Weekly that Beth had begun chemotherapy. However, she later hinted that she was exploring alternative cancer treatments, including cannabis-based CBD and THC.
In January 2019, she told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser:
“Even though the outlook is grim, it’s… I just… don’t want to live it like that.”
In May 2019, while addressing the congregation of Source Church in Bradenton, Florida, Beth implied she’d stopped chemo treatments altogether. According to People, she said:
“Sorry, [chemotherapy is] not for me. So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing.”
The following month, Beth Chapman was placed in a medically-induced coma at Hawaii’s Queen’s Medical Center. Sadly, she never recovered.
Upon hearing the sad news, Twitter users quickly took to the platform to show their love and support for the Chapman family. One fan wrote:
“Beth was a tough lady with a huge loving heart. I pray [that] God comforts Dog and his family at this sad time.”
Alongside a fan art image of Beth, another person wrote:
“I just wanted to share this with everyone. RIP to the best girl bounty hunter, Beth Chapman. I am so sorry to Dog and the rest of the family. I made this for them and I hope they like it. My condolences to the Chapman family. She will be dearly missed. Love ya Beth. Miss you.”
Yet another fan wrote:
“Dude y’all dunno how awesome it was to see a no nonsense woman, with [a] dash of badass as a kid. She was fabulous and would throw down. It makes me sad to see her go, but she sure was a blessing to young me. Rest well ma’am, you deserve it.”
Wayne Dupree of The Wayne Dupree Show wrote:
“God please take care of the family during this time.”
Another fan tweeted:
