On Wednesday morning, it was revealed that reality television star Beth Chapman had passed away. A number of celebrities have since taken to social media to pay tribute to her.


On the same day that Beth Chapman, 51, passed away, her husband Duane “Dog” Chapman, 66, took to Twitter to officially announce the news. He later held a television interview to speak about losing her.

Since the news broke many fans and celebrities have honored her with posts on social media. One such person was for Grey's Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington.


Washington took to Twitter and shared a photo of Beth with the caption: “#MySleeptweet RIP Beth Chapman.” Kim Zolciak-Biermann from Real Housewives of Atlanta also mourned the Dog the Bounty Hunter star by tweeting: "There will never be another @MrsdogC I know you are now pain free [sic]."

Judge Jeanine Pirro wrote that Beth was “a good lady and a great American.” Actor Scott Baio sent his “deepest sympathy and prayers” to the Chapman family.


Rita Cosby retweeted Duane’s announcement and shared

“No words to describe this huge loss of my heroic and dear friend #BethChapman. Prayers needed for @DogBountyHunter and all of us who loved Beth so very much and her indomitable spirit. #RIpBelovedBeth #DogTheBountyHunter #DogAndBeth.”

John Luke offered his condolences with the Chapmans and also described Beth as “A Great Lady.” Brielle Biermann felt the whole thing was “So horrible … praying for her family ... she was always so kind to us.”


Duane revealed that he’d lost his wife by 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.”

He also gave an interview where he spoke about her last words and how the family was coping with the loss. A couple of times during the interview he came close to breaking into tears.


Beth was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September 2017. After a mass was removed from her throat she was declared cancer-free.

However, late last year she was rushed to a hospital with breathing problems and it was determined the disease had returned and spread to her lungs. In April, this year she was rushed to the hospital again before the same thing happened on Saturday.

She was put in a medically induced coma before she died.


Before passing on, Beth and Duane had started working on a new bounty hunting show called Dog's Most Wanted. It was meant to air this fall but reports have since stated that it was pushed for early next year.

Some people have wondered if Beth’s passing meant the show would be canceled but so far the network responsible for it, WGN, hasn’t said anything. Instead, they were among the many that sent a memorial message over Beth’s death.
