Roger Ebert’s Not So Nice Tweet Regarding Ryan Dunn – Bam Margera Responds
Sometimes, people like to be comedians. The problem is, some people aren’t. Roger Ebert, noted film critic and co-host of ‘At The Movies’ with Gene Siskel, managed to tweet a few <140 character notes regarding the recent death of ‘Jackass’ star Ryan Dunn. According to MTV, Gene tweeted “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.” Prior to that, Ebert sent out a link to a report and said “‘Jackass’ star Ryan Dunn, RIP. Porsche flew through 40 yards of trees.”
These tweets obviously didn’t sit well with Ryan’s co-star and friend Bam Margera, who had a few choice words to say to Mr. Ebert. Following the initial tweets, Bam responded with the following: “I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of s*** roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents.” Bam then added, “About a jackass drunk driving and his is one, f*** you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat f***ing mouth!”
Time for my two cents, and they most certainly lean to the side of Bam Margera, as well as the rest of the civilized community (with the exception of the Westborough Baptist Church, who don’t fall within the parameters of the word ‘civilized’) when I say that if you don’t have anything nice to say, then please shut up! Not because it’s against the law to poke fun at the dead, it’s just in really bad taste. After being so close to death yourself battling through thyroid cancer and the multitude of surgeries that nearly took your life, they may have accidentally taken out your sense of humor or sense of decency in the process. This is someone’s friend, son and co-worker. Please stop trying to do stand-up comedy on Twitter and get back to reviewing movies that no one else cares to see. For your irresponsible use of technology to voice your twisted humor, I’m giving you a big thumbs down.
