Bam Margera Calls Ebert 'Piece Of Shit' For Comment On Ryan Dunn's Death

Bam Margera is furious with Roger Ebert for insulting his friend Ryan Dunn and implying that drinking and driving lead to his death.

This after Ebert remarked "friends don't let jackasses drink and drive" after the accident in which Dunn's Porsche jumped a guardrail, crashed into a tree and burst into flames.

"I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day," says Margera. "And piece of shit Roger Ebert has the gall to put in his two cents 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!"

Police have also identified Ryan Dunn's passenger as Zachary Hartwell, a production assistant on 'Jackass'. Hartwell was one of them drinking with Dunn in a photo that Dunn shared hours before the Monday morning crash. They say Dunn was doing 130 miles-per-hour at the time of the crash.

Meanwhile, Margera's strong reaction has led to an apology -- of sorts -- from Roger Ebert.

"To begin with, I offer my sympathy to Ryan Dunn's family and friends, and to those of Zachary Hartwell, who also died in the crash. I mean that sincerely. It is tragic to lose a loved one. I also regret that my tweet about the event was considered cruel. It was not intended as cruel. It was intended as true."

"I have no way of knowing if Ryan Dunn was drunk at the time of his death," admits the film critic. "I don't know what happened in this case, and I was probably too quick to Tweet. What did I mean by that? I meant exactly what I wrote. I wasn't calling Ryan Dunn a jackass. In Twitter shorthand, I was referring to his association with Jackass."
