DON'T FORGET TO "LIKE" BEE-OTCH OF THE DAY ON FACEBOOK!
This world is so filled with Jackasses.
And yes, Fred Phelps is one of them.
The independent baptist church with less than 100 members, famous for their multiple "God Hates ____" websites and protests of American soldier funerals is at it again. They plan to protest the funeral of Ryan Dunn, the member of the hit MTV series Jackass who was best-known for his stunts involving jumping into sewage and shoving a toy car up his ass.
It was also noted that in Jackass: The Movie, Dunn drove a golf cart with co-star Johnny Knoxville as his passenger into a plastic pig, hoping to be crushed. However it didn't, and the cart ended up flipped over with Knoxville landing on his neck. During the film's director's notes, co-star and CKY co-partner Bam Margera stated that Dunn was a bad driver.
Dunn died Monday morning when he lost control of his 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 when it swerved off the road, flew through 40 yards of woods and crashed into a tree in rural Pennsylvania. The accident also killed his passenger, Zachary Heartwell, who was a production assistant on Jackass: Number Two. It was revealed that Dunn, Heartwell and a friend were all drinking that evening since it was posted on Dunn's Twitter account. Toxology reports have revealed that Dunn's blood alcohol content was .196, more than twice the legal limit in Pennsylvania, which is .08.
Speed was also a factor in the crash that killed Dunn; it was believed that he was driving upwards to 140 MPH; the speed limit was 55 MPH.
Needless to say, Dunn's death left Jackass fans saddened and stunned. However, his critics came out of the woodwork. Roger Ebert - who never reviewed any of theJackass films - wrote on his Twitter "Friends don't let Jackasses drive drunk". His tweet angered many, including Perez Hilton, who called his tweet "insensitive". Even Dunn's friends slammed Ebert, including Margera, who wrote (and yes, I've combined his tweets since they're over 140 characters):
