Beth Chapman's Daughter Bonnie Slams Social Media Critics Degrading Her Late Mother: 'Shame On You'

Bonnie Chapman is mourning the death of her late mother Beth Chapman.
As we reported, the 51-year-old Dog The Bounty Hunter star sadly lost her battle to throat cancer on Wednesday in a Honolulu hospital.
Chapman was diagnosed with the disease back in 2017, and was able to beat the illness for a while after an aggressive series of chemotherapy, and having the cancer removed. Unfortunately, the fatal disease returned in 2018, with her condition worsening over time. The star was kept in a medically-induced coma for her final moments with family.

Shortly after Duane “Dog” Chapman shared the news of Beth’s passing with the world on Twitter, the couple’s 20-year-old daughter used the same platform to share a final, emotional message of love to her late mother.
Bonnie wrote:

“Love you forever mom. You’ve got a halo now.”

The late reality TV star’s daughter continued, sharing more sweet words of admiration for her super “strong” mother:

“I’ll never forget you, mama. You were such a strong woman, and you taught me to always be strong. You were strong for everyone, and you taught me it’s okay to let go.”

As we told you, the announcement of Beth’s untimely death sparked a flood of support from fans on social media, with many paying tribute to the fierce woman and her spirited career.
While a majority of the comments were positive, there were a few critics on social media who were less than kind in their condolences — some even going as far as to degrade the late star.
Those negative comments didn’t get past Bonnie, who clapped back at the Twitter users, saying:

“For those talking s**t about my mother after her death, shame on you. 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.”

Ugh. Regardless of what you thought of the woman while she was alive, it should go without saying that maybe now isn’t the best time to spew hate and negativity while a family is in mourning.
Echoing our sentiments, the youngest Chapman also tweeted:

“I’d never thought I’d lose my mom at 20. I told her I thought she had a couple years left, but in her eyes she disagreed.”

So, so sad.

Bonnie didn’t let the hateful words get her down, though.
She continued to pay tribute to her mom, sharing sweet photos like this one (below):

Our thoughts and prayers are with friends, family, and loved ones of the Chapmans as they navigate this difficult time.
