Bam Margera Brought a News Team to Ryan Dunn’s Crash Site

June 22nd, 2011 // 201 Comments

Here’s what we know today about Ryan Dunn‘s death:

1. Police have now determined his Porsche was traveling approximately 130 mph after an accident reconstruction team examined the crash site.
2. The “three beers and three shots” story along with Ryan looking “fine” before he left is the bar’s official talking point because Pennsylvania has a dram shop law making them liable if they continued to serve Ryan while he was visibly intoxicated.
3. Guests at the bar said he was wasted. Sort of like in this photo. At the bar.

Yesterday, Bam Margera visited the crash site and brought a news team with him for an exclusive interview because he doesn’t dress like a hobo version of the lead singer of HIM for his own benefit. From there he proceeded to let the cameras film him crying before claiming to have been psychically moved by Ryan’s death to rip apart a van before he even knew about it. You can’t make this shit up. Via Fox 29:

“I was in Arizona with best friends having the best time with friends,” Margera said.
“He was the happiest person, the smartest guy with so much talent.”
Margera said on Sunday night he started to rip out parts of a van for no apparent reason. It turned out that incident happened at the same time Dunn died in a crash.
“It is not right,” Margera told us as he was in tears.
“It was the worst phone call I got in my life,” Margera said.

Look, I’m not expecting Bam Margera to make some statement about Ryan Dunn’s behavior because, yes, he grew up with the guy and is probably still processing all this. But to bring a goddamn news team to make a spectacle of your loss is pretty fucking macabre, and yet anyone who mentions Ryan Dunn could’ve killed innocent people is being tasteless. To put things in perspective, if Kim Kardashian saw this, she’d start taking notes. Or tell Kris Humphries to fire up the floor waxer because her ass is looking dull. I’m not a psychic van mechanic.

    Best post I’ve seen so far:

    ” I wish Bam was in the back seat.”

    Let it go, everyone.

    I’m no Bam Mergera fan, in fact I fucking hate the guy, but Fox Philly was trolling that crash site the entire day. They just got a boner when they saw Bam show up and jumped him with an interview. I’m surprised he did it, but you can tell he’s still not in his right mind. I woudn’t play the “attention whore” card on him right now. I’ve agreed with your assesment of these events pretty much up to this point, but this is one I have to disagree with. “Brought his own film crew”, really?

    I’ve watched this video at least ten times and I laugh harder and harder each time. “Do you know how awful it is to be on a plane for 6 hours when everyone’s here?” Selfish little prick.

    I’m pretty much on board with everyone who wishes this douchenozzle had been in the car when it did the big flaming catapult gag. But it’s not too late. The dickhead could go ahead and stick a pistol in his mouth while he’s yammering on here pretending to be a human and all that noise. Knoxville could call it “The Grief Counselor Stunt,” and would make a buttload more money off of the film of that than he did filming Saint Ryan The Dunn swim in shit (the undoubted high-point of his value to humanity before topping it by crispy-frying himself.) Hell, I’d buy a ticket – I’m willing to pay for funny at THAT level.

    With Bam’s wealth I’m really suprised he took a plane that would take six hours to get from anywhere in AZ back to Philly. A chartered jet would get him there in less than three easily. That said, I’m sure he’s not so shallow as to have actually informed a TV crew that he would be there (much less set it up). It’s a sad loss when anyone does stupid shit like this, celebrity or not. Its too bad Bam couldn’t have at least made some weak attempt to say on camera “to not drive drunk, much less drive at light speed (Ok “wicked fast”) when you are loaded. Obviously their whole crew is known for stupid antics like this. I actually think some are hysterical and I don’t fault them for getting rich off it. It’s just too bad some of it finally caught up with them. Hopefully it will be a lesson for all..including the sane. As the saying goes..”live fast …die young”.

    Wonder where the cameras and “tears” were for the family of the guy that this drunken asshole killed? Of COURSE Bam called the media. He’s a fucking douchebag who makes money by acting like a 12 yr-old boy w/ADD. Fucking assholes, all of ‘em. BTW

    (cut myself off) BTW: Ebert was right on the money – this asshat starts a “war” w/Ebert over very sane comments and then he pulls this shit. I don’t buy the film crew was “trolling the trash site” – more like they’d troll Bam’s HOUSE. Do you think the film crew would just sit around for hours everyday on the HOPE that Bam would show up? Bitch please!

    I love how when the crash happened, everyone was like, “You don’t know he drank anything”. Then when they find out he was drinking a lot for someone who intended to drive, they’re now claiming “You don’t know he was drunk!”.

    Me? I don’t care if he was technically over the limit or not. If you’re going to drive, you shouldn’t be drinking more than one drink, if that. You certainly shouldn’t be drinking three beers and three shots. Even for someone who drinks a lot on a regular basis and ‘knows their limits’, there’s still the chance you might have a one-off strange reaction. I don’t give a shit if he wants to drink drive and risk his own life, or even the life of someone dumb enough to get in his passenger seat, but getting in a car drunk risks the lives of everyone else around you too. And that is fucked up.

  10. What a joke. if you know anything about Porsche, I dont need to tell you whats wrong with the skid mark pictures. hahahaha they fail.

    not to mention the role cage. hahaha
