DOG the Bounty Hunter says he "loves" his daughter Bonnie’s clapback at trolls who slammed his relationship with his new girlfriend.
Widower Duane Chapman lost his wife Beth to cancer in June 2019 and is now dating Francie Frane.
He's been criticised by haters over the love affair after breaking up with his ex Moon Angell.
But Dog's daughter Bonnie has hit back as she defends her dad's choices. She said: "Everyone who's judging my father should sure pray that they never have to lose their loved one and get judged for trying to fill the void.
"Your opinion is invalid. My mother would've wanted him to be happy.
"Now please shut up and let my dad live in peace."
Sharing the post, Duane wrote on social media: "Love this."
The Sun exclusively revealed Duane's new romance with 51-year-old rancher from Colorado.
At the time Dog's daughter Lyssa and close family friend Rainy Robinson told The Sun the reality star is head over heels for Francie – and say they couldn't be happier for the new couple.
The couple have been dating for a few months and met after Dog called Francie's husband Bob to do some yard work at his house in Colorado.
Sadly Francie had to break the news to Dog, 67, that Bob had died several months before Beth – Dog's wife who passed away from cancer last June.
The pair began talking on the phone and became close – and are helping each other deal with the grief of losing their spouses, Lyssa said.
She added: "They are both so happy together and they are good for each other.
"Francie has been very respectful to all the kids – and to Beth's memory – and my dad is the same way with Bob and their children.
"They go to church three times a week and dad is trying to give up smoking – she is a good woman for my dad.
"He's the happiest I've seen him in a long time – he's so in love and wants to spend the rest of his life with Francie.
"They are both lost their spouses to cancer so they know what i's like to go through that and they are helping each other through it," she added.
"But at the same time they are being very respectful of each other's grieving process and they're not trying to replace each other's partner.
"Beth would approve – I honestly believe that Beth sent Francie for my dad – I feel like Beth and Bob are up there watching down over them."
