Bam Margera is devastated over the loss of his best friend/Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn, and as he tries to manage his grief, he is also very angry at movie critic Roger Ebert for his comments about the 34-year-old’s death.
Ryan died in a fatal car crash in West Chester, Pa. early Monday morning, leaving his Jackass family destroyed. Hours before his death, Ryan reportedly posted pictures of himself on Twitter, drinking with pals before the wreck.
One of Ryan’s friends reportedly told TMZ that he allegedly had “three beers and three shots” before getting behind the wheel.
Roger took to his Twitter page after learning of the tragedy, writing, “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”
And late last night, Bam turned to his Twitter and slammed the film critic for his response in a series of two Tweets.
“I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of shit roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents” he Tweeted, followed by, “About a jackass drunk driving and his is one, f**k you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat f**king mouth!
Yesterday, Bam’s parents April and Phil Margera opened up about their son’s grief as well as their own in an on-air interview.
“I think we are still processing the whole thing, really,” April told MyFoxPhilly.com earlier today in a video interview. “I know you are, I am, and we’re just worried, you know, about our Bam. He’s out of town and was just told, so, he’s devastated, needless to say. We all are, West Chester [Pa.] is, you know. Our whole entire Jackass family is like beside themselves. I can’t believe it.”
