Roger Ebert Attacks Ryan Dunn for Drunk Driving, and Bam Margera Fires Back

Well, this feels completely unnecessary: Roger Ebert, fan of controversy, responded to Jackass star Ryan Dunn's death in a car accident yesterday by tweeting, "Friends don't let Jackasses drink and drive." Before the crash, Dunn had tweeted a photo of what looked like him and some friends drinking, although the police have not said that anyone was driving drunk and have preliminarily attributed the crash to the speed with which the car was traveling. After Ebert's tweet was picked up and criticized on Perez Hilton, Roger backed it up once more, writing, "Perez Hilton's readers agree with me and not with Perez about my tweet on Ryan Dunn. He drank, he drove, 2 people died." Bam Margera's pained response might sum it up for a lot of Dunn fans: "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 ... About a jackass drunk driving and his is one, fuck you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat fucking mouth!" [Live Feed/HR, BamMargera/Twitter]
