Bam Margera Opens Up About Ryan Dunn's Death.

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadReality TV

This is just so awful. He looks completely inconsolable.

Bam Margera recently sat down to discuss the tragic loss of his dear friend and Jackass co-star, Ryan Dunn - who lost his life in a car accident last week - and we think it's pretty safe to say that this is not an easy interview to watch.

Check out the segment, in which he goes over his last words to his friends, how he discovered the news, and a chilling story in which he nearly suffered the same fate at the exact same spot years earlier (above).

Such a poor thing. It's so difficult to watch someone go through something like this.

Just so broken.

We can't even begin to imagine how he's feeling right now, but we sincerely hope that he can find it in himself to stay strong and get himself the help he needs to move past this devastating loss. We know that's what Ryan would want.

You're in our thoughts, Bam. Hang in there.

Watch the video…. after the jump.

  1. 1

    why is he even doing interviews. Take it easy and grieve! The media bullshit can wait!



  2. 2

    Wow!! he is so loaded… Which is totally understandable, but that is not just alcohol.



  3. 3

    He seems spiritually vacant and sounds wasted so he will have a very tough time getting through the stages of grief which are necessary for closure and acceptance.



  4. 4

    I don't understand why he's giving interviews anyway. Why would someone so 'crushed' go on some kind of media tour like this. It makes me uncomfortable.



  5. 5

    OMG How long is this D-Bag going to drone on about some stupid drunk who killed himself and someone else??? You just love all the attention, hey Bam? Been a while since anyone gave a shit about what you said and it makes you feel important?



  6. 6

    sad but whats sadder is how high he looks and sounds.



  7. 7

    WHAT IS WITH THE AUTO-PLAY…ESPECIALLY THE COMMERCIAL ADS?

    Every square millimeter of this site is now an ad.

    Audio ads, photos ads, video ads. Ads when you click, ads when you don't, background ads, ads to the left, ads the the right, and on and on and on and on…

    The only reason to come to this site anymore is to get a HIGH PRESSURE ADVERTISEMENT FORCE FEED / ENEMA.



  8. 8

    He was drunk and liked to drive like a douche. I'm glad he's off the road.



  9. 9

    I feel bad for him. It isnt his fault his friend got drunk and drove or as he said was just speeding… he prob was going soooo fast and if he did miss the exit and tried to make it .. wow.. he misjudged. Even if Ryan did kill that poor guy, Bam still has a right to mourn his friend however he wants. and maybe talking it out will help him and shed light on what type of person ryan was. A reckless driver. Its a goodlesson to all the kids out there. to see the aftermath, of the pain it causes your friends when your dead.



  10. 10

    Bam is clearly extremely medicated. He needs to be careful, his friends & family need to watch him closely. Grief can be so deep. Stop doing interviews Bam, take care of yourself.



  11. 11

    He's such a fucking idiot. It's sad he doesn't realize the lifestyle he glamorizes is what got his friend killed. Go the fuck away.



  12. 12

    I'm sick of people downgrading this and calling it a tragedy the guy was drunk and Bam excusing that is clear he hasn't learned a god dam thing



  13. 13

    Another thing why did he say he was sleeping??? In the other interview he said he was partying with friends and he started ripping the car he was in apart…whats with the story change?



  14. 14

    Ryan Dunn still killed somebody.



  15. 15

    Re: okayokayokay – My sentiments exactly.



  16. 16

    Re: Freedomisntfree – He's not changing the story. In the previous interview at the site he said it was around 12:30 am when he started tearing up the car & he said he didn't know why he was doing it, turned out that was around the time Dunn crashed & died. He woke up the next day to the phone call that Dunn was dead.



  17. 17

    KNOCK OFF the f*cking auto play. I could understand it if was breaking news like the US been invaded. This is not a huge breaking story and is annoying as h&ll!!!!



  18. 18

    Bam seems so delirious and not himself. He seriously needs some time away from the spotlight.



  19. 19

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – I'm so in agreement with you. You can't move the cursor without "get the look". I don't bother watching most clips because of the ads. Even main media outlets limit their advertising on clips. Perez has sold his soul.



  20. 20

    Whatever. He knew his friend was a maniac driver. He even said that the drinking was no big deal ("three girly shots"?) The way these guys egg each other on with their stupid stunts I doubt he ever seriously expressed concern to Dunn about his driving. Probably more along the lines of, "you dumbass! *Hyuk, hyuk*!" I've had friends whose friends/family died because they were driving drunk. They talked about their grief when they spoke about it, but they also went on to use the accident as a teachable lesson and it really opened their eyes about the dangerous consequences of reckless driving. It doesn't seem like Bam has gotten that realization and is just giving a lot of pointless "pity me" interviews.



  21. 21

    Bottom line is this. 1. He was drunk and driving a car that he couldn't control. 2. He killed someone and thank God it was only one other person. 3. Bam is trying to justify something that cannot be justified. Any other drunken fool that kills someone in a car wreck is labeled a murderer. I'm sorry.. Friend or not, that's the truth. Bad judgement, bad ending.. let it rest.. there is no way to make this pretty..



  22. 22

    I've heard the fiber ad for the third time now. STOP IT! My bowels are fine, thank you. And Bamm whining and drunk for the fourth time. I'm off this site. BYE.



  23. 23

    I could only get through half of this because this little POS pisses me off so much. Sorry, but I couldn't care less that your "maniac" driver friend is dead. Drinking and driving "don't matter"? Please. It matters to me a helluva f—ing lot because I was rammed into 6 years ago by a drunk driver while I was crossing a street. FUCK RYAN DUNN AND FUCK BAM MARGERA! I have to live here in Philly with the worst drivers on the earth and I think I'm going to die every single time I cross a street here. I should care about his drunk friend? Get the hell out of my city, Margera!



  24. 24

    Re: Freedomisntfree – he said that during the time of the car crash he was partying and the started smashing things up for no reason



  25. 25

    Re: PrincessSilverThong – that is pretty harsh. u need to chill. people just lost a friend and family memeber. would u be being such a jerkface if it was one of ur friends or family that made that choice that dynn had?? no i don't think so but whatever



  26. 26

    What's sad about this interview is people like Perez Hilton take these people serious. Bam Margera sounds high or drunk



  27. 27

    What the fuck is wrong with you people commenting. I'm sure the media is up his ass about information on Dunn. There is absolutely nothing wrong with letting his fans know how he feels and for people to say how high he looks and sounds, F U C K Y O U ! HE LOST HIS BEST FRIEND, THE ONLY PERSON HE HAS LOST IN HIS LIFE AND IT WAS HIS BEST FRIEND, HIS DEATH WAS BRUTAL AND TRAGIC! HE HAS BEEN CRYING SINCE RYAN DUNN DIED. You are all idiots, inconsiderate idiots. It's people like you that make good people look bad. You guys don't know shit.



  28. 28

    He's high on heroin or something. His eyes and the way he's talking.



  29. 29

    I'm watching more. this guy is a loser. I can't believe this moron is being interviewed



  30. 30

    Re: RED–SONJA – Get real, he lost his best fucking friend, he has been crying his ass off. You're an incosiderate idiot. Go off yourself you dick



  31. 31

    Re: Freedomisntfree – He started ripping the car apart around the same time Ryan was killed. It's not like he heard about it at the exact time it happened. He heard about it hours later when he was asleep, dumbass!



  32. 32

    the drinking doesn't matter but you would asked for his keys??



  33. 33

    I



  34. 34

    Bam's life has been a complete shitshow for awhile. And now this?! He's never gonna properly grieve. He's just gonna keep boozing, screwing hos & pretending that he & his wife Missy are the best of friends.



  35. 35

    Bam is soooo milking this. Wasn't he pretty much washed up? Great career comeback, milking your friends death. Ryan Dunn's death is not sad. Bitch played and he paid. What is sad, all the innocent victims that are killed yearly by assholes like Ryan Dunn.



  36. 36

    Hey dumbasses it clearly says it in the post wtf it is about ..so if you are so pissed and don't care that a guy is crushed about his friend death then don't click and watch the fucker.. fucking idiots amaze me.. anyways.. just because someone gives a interview doesn't mean they are feeding for sympathy (he's going to get it regardless from his fans) or is a fame-whore (he hasn't been in the spotlight for a while, he could have easily gotten a show about married life or some shit..don't be so judgmental) maybe this is his way of letting people know how he feels.. many people have been asking him how he's taking it and how he feels..he's just answering.. and just look at the guy.. he looks drowned out and miserable.. you can clearly tell he loves and misses his friend.. his friend made a poor choice, so what, that means he can't cry for him? He can't feel bad or talk about it? So if it was your close friend or family member that did this you people would be heartless and say such nasty things about them and condemn them? Wow.. that is disgusting.. leave him alone..let him deal with it how he wants to.. and both ryan and the other man made a mistake,, ryan is not a murderer.. the guy got into the car willingly with a drunken driver that he knows speeds.they both made terrible mistakes and paid the ultimate price.. don't spread such hate and let them rest.. don't like Bam crying for his friend? well um don't watch it?



  37. 37

    Why do they even show this stoned guy who has no idea what hes saying? He shows no respect!



  38. 38

    I really like Bam and can feel his pain but why is trying to bring Missy to all the interview thingys? They haven't divorced but there not even together anymore. He has west coast and east coast gfs along with random hoes.. I just really hope he can be able to deal with Ryan's death because otherwise he might do something he probably would regret like..accidental overdose.



  39. 39

    Re: SanFranCatGirl – i don't know if u ever lost anybody but dynn was his childhood friend and now his gone and bam is in pain. so i am sure he would admit to being on something for the grief. i don't see a problem with that….



  40. 40

    Re: J-Doll – thnak you, u really said exactly what i was going to write.



  41. 41

    Re: mydirrtysecret – well missy is still his wife regardless of their problems and ryan was also her friend too. but she is just standing by her man in his time of need.



  42. 42

    Re: Christik – Whatever doesn't change the fact his friend was a fucking idiot and he is just excusing his retarded behaviors fuck bam and fuck Ryan Dunn



  43. 43

    He seems like he will be the next time to go..its sad he can't actually do something productive with his life in honor of his "friend". He looks trashed on tv and is milking all of the interviews. If my close friend died, I sure as hell would not be doing interviews. The sad thing is he once said "it shouldn't have been him"..well I'd rather it be him then some innocent family.



  44. 44

    Re: Freedomisntfree – at the time Ryan was in the accident, that is when Bam was ripping out the car. He didn't receive the offical call until later that evening when he was asleep. He thought it was just weird that Ryans time of death was the same time he was ripping shit apart.



  45. 45

    Re: J-Doll – Nicely said!

  46. 3l$@ says – reply to this


    46

    why is his nose so wide is he half black or something?



  47. 47

    Re: sincere – I forgive you :)



  48. 48

    Re: PrincessSilverThong – Fuck off u stupid bitch. Have some respect-u sound like a piece of shit. I hope someone in ur family dies in a car crash so u can go through the same thing. Choke on a dick dumb slut



  49. 49

    Not a great message to put out there…that "alcohol had nothing to do with it"…
    Hey it doesn't matter if you're drunk, you'll crash anyway…Right?…Wrong!



  50. 50

    He's making it more about himself. Like some self pity party. Wow. He mentioned Ryan but a couple of times during that entire intoxicated mess of an interview.

    His friends need to pay close attention to him, because he's one beer shy of driving himself off the highway. Seriously. That and AA for 6 months.



  51. 51


  52. 52

    Who are these losers? You know what makes me sad? The friend that died in this car crash. And what about the people who were killed that day by drunk drivers? I'd rather hear from their loved ones than this waste of space.



  53. 53

    Re: ButtonsBitches – you are welcome some of these people are just heartless assholes..;)



  54. 54

    Re: martianchick76 – thanks ;)



  55. 55

    Bam is so far gone in this video it's insane. And for the people saying he is saying "drinking and driving don't matter" I don't think that's what he meant exactly. I think what he was trying to get across is that even if he hadn't been drinking this could/would have eventually happened because Ryan was a reckless driver. Sometimes I wonder if people on this site don't know how to interpret what people are saying and only take things how they want to hear them.



  56. 56

    Re: jtssrx – he means that he had a high tolerance level for alcohol so he's saying it was probably just how fast and stupid he drove.



  57. 57

    Re: PrincessSilverThong
    wow your the devil.
    that stupid drunk was his best friend you whore.



  58. 58

    so this guy nearly killed Bam 6ish years ago doing the exact same fucking thing? Explain to me why ANYONE would feel bad for this douchebag?



  59. 59

    Re: PrincessSilverThong – You are one unfeeling POS bitch.



  60. 60

    Re: scoochamenz – Unfeeling ass you are.



  61. 61

    Re: sincere – Right on! Thank you for your perfect words. I am so tired of reading the unfeeling comments made some of the other commentators!



  62. 62

    My first comment may be insensitive but it's true. Ryan Dunn killed his passenger in the process of killing himself because he was arrogant enough to get behind the wheel of his car, and his 'friends' didn't stop him. Of course what happened is a tragedy but why is nobody speaking up about how easily these deaths could have been prevented?

    If you drink, DON'T DRIVE. If your friend insists they can get behind the wheel of a vehicle, steal their keys.



  63. 63

    Let me get this straight.

    Bam the Incredible "Grieving" Famewhore is using his extra 15 minutes of fame to basically promote himself and all his "grief" instead of taking the opportunity to warn other people against DRUNK DRIVING. In fact, he still won't admit Ryan was DRUNK DRIVING because even in death he's continuing his role as an ENABLER.

    Ryan Dunn was an ALCOHOLIC (YEAH I SAID IT ) and Bam, his best friend, who loved him sooooo much, didn't do a thing to help him. He can take all his supposed grief and cram it up his own substance-abusing ass.

    And YOU, Perez, won't call him on it! Where is all your sanctimonious ranting about not drinking and driving now, Perez?? NOW IS WHEN YOU NEED TO BUST THAT SHIT OUT.



  64. 64

    Re: J-Doll

    Actually, according to the law, Ryan Dunn is a murderer. It's called "vehicular manslaughter". And if you're all fucked up when you do it, they can bump it up to actual second-degree murder because of "gross negligence" or a "disregard for human life".

    For anybody else out there who thinks you're somehow abrogated of your responsibilities because YOU made the decision to get blind drunk before YOU got behind wheel of a car, let me disabuse of you that notion. It's not just an" accident" — you're criminally liable.

    I can't wait to see the family of the Ryan's dead passenger sue Ryan's estate for wrongful death. Whatever money he hadn't gotten around to snorting up his nose will go to them.



  65. 65

    Re: okayokayokay
    Exactly.



  66. 66

    That poor bastard! He's completely off his face and he can hardly string words together. No matter what he's been drinking or taking, that's grief too. It's completely debilitating and he's quite obviously dying. I really hope he can pull himself together though. I loved Ryan and I adore Bam. I do not want to see Perez post that Bam's dead from an OD in a couple weeks. He needs to get help sooner rather than later, and he cant find that help from the bottom of a bottle.
    It's just so terrible. I hope he can grieve and move on. You can never really get over something so painful. You just have to learn to live with it.



  67. 67

    Re: mydirrtysecret – He's obviously bringing Missy for support. They may not be together but they've known eachother since they were kids. She's holding him up right now when all he wants is to collapse. If I were in his position I'd take any person I feel could support me properly.

  68. lolli says – reply to this


    68

    jesus is this really bam> wow he looks like hell, i feel bad for their loss, but at the same time, why is everyone only talking about the drunk driver and not the passenger? fucking irresponsible.



  69. 69

    Why does everyone feel sorry for him. How about feel sorry for the other person he killed. Going that fast and drunk what the hell do they think was gonna happen. Glad he died one less ass on the road



  70. 70

    Re: JustHadToComment – you are a heartless dick.. you really think this man can go out and start a rally against drunk driving with the state he's in? It's also not his job and this happened like what 2 fucking weeks ago?? yeah maybe you can get over a loved ones death so fast because you obviously have no soul with the way you talk about another life but most people have a long harder time till they can collect themselves and deal with the grief.. he doesn't need to "fame-whore" fyi..i already explained that.. and you can take your definition and shove it clear up your ass.. they can't sue idiot.. the man got into ryans car willingly! they were photographed drinking together.. he knew what he was doing.. he knew ryan drank and he got into the car and let him drive anyways.. they will lose if they do because of that..unless the one who claims the state feels obligated and gives.. so idk why you feel high and mighty.. i guess you don't give a shit about all that? so hows it feel talking shit about someone clearly in pain? hows it feel talking about a guys corpse rotting 6 feet under as we speak? the man is dead..nothing you say is going to change anything..you are vile.. and i wonder if you would say all this shit if it was your family who fucked up? Wow..



  71. 71

    Re: JustHadToComment – i shouldn't even bother with you look how nasty you are.. just remember when karma does something horrible to you for how you talk about someone elses life think back to this.. all the shit you said.. just don't be surprised



  72. 72

    Re: Pedplar – wow glad someone died? i hope someone says that about one of your family members bitch



  73. 73

    Re: JustHadToComment – well wtf ever.. if you don't understand pain..think what you want.. by putting that nasty shit you said you are already getting yourself into trouble.. it always comes back harder remember that.. now i am fucking done talking to you.. done with this post.. moving on..you know something you and others should have done from this post since you hate them.. stay vile..that is all you will amount to.. now fuck you, fuck the rest of you saying heartless shit.. i will not come back to read your stupid ass posts or any others so if you want to waste your time go the fuck ahead..whatever makes you feel better about your self esteem.. moving on to the next post "jackasses" xD



  74. 74

    Re: J-Doll – Stop getting so angry about people making comments you don't wanna hear and hoping others that their family member dies. You don't wanna put that out into the universe. Karma doll. Karma.



  75. 75

    Re: J-Doll – Um, the "accident" could have been prevented you piece of shit. So how about you stop acting so high and mighty and put the blame where it is needed. His friend was intoxicated and his judgement was probably skewed the same way Ryan Dunn's was. Bam doesn't need to sit here and enable his friend's actions even now that he is dead. Bam needs help and if you do not believe it than you are just down right stupid. Sitting here drunk or high and doing countless interviews is not going to get him better and he will end up where his two friends are. If Ryan Dunn lived but killed his friend or another person in a different car, that would be considered murder. Just because he died doesn't mean it changes.



  76. 76

    LMFAO!! Dunn is DONE!! HA!!



  77. 77

    While I don't feel sorry for Ryan dying, I do feel sorry for the friends and family he left behind



  78. 78

    Re: jjames33 – some people r into speed and racecar driving doesn't make them a douchbag, it makes hima fucking daredevil



  79. 79

    Re: JustHadToComment – hey fuckface just go somewhere else and try to sound all knowing and smart when ur just a arrogent ass fuck and nobody gives a flying fuck what u have to say dooouchbag…



  80. 80

    Re: Pedplar – zack was a friend of theirs and he knew how ryan drived and he knew it was dangerous so it is just as much his fault died as it is ryans fault for driving all crazy



  81. 81

    Re: ButtonsBitches – "some people r into speed and racecar driving doesn't make them a douchbag" A. he was doing 130mph on a 60mph road. B. Dunn did this while drunk. C. he is NOT a speedracer and D. like someone else said on this board, according to law, Dunn did indeed 'murder' his friend, it's called vehicular manslaughter. He was an irresponsible dick for drinking and driving (several times) and could've caused much more grief if he had crashed into another car. In this case, only the perpetrators died and seeing this could've been prevented, that's their own fault.
    All this 'you're heartless, you must've never lost a friend!' blabla is bullcrap. Go talk to people who lost a family member or friend because of someone like Dunn. That's the people I feel sorry for, people who died at the hands of another. Of course I feel bad for Bam losing a friend, but that friend was still a dumb twat for doing what he did.



  82. 82

    Re: Rocketboy – I noticed that too…like you say, understandable…he clearly isn't able to cope with the reality of losing his best friend.



  83. 83

    Yeah he made a bad choice drinking and driving…but beyond that he was a nice guy and has friends and family whom are grieving anyway they feel they need to. Like some people said..Zach chose to get in the car with someone who was clearly intoxicated and no-one seems to be saying "Hey why didn't you stop him, take the keys off him" etc etc they just want to put all the responsibility and blame on Dunn. Yeah he was stupid and I'm sure Bam would be the first to agree, but give the guy a break…



  84. 84

    What a bunch of dumb asses. 1) the passenger chose to get in the car 2) for a MAN who had high tolerance to alcohol, that may not have even been a factor. sadly he kept being stupid and drove too fast all the time 3) are you people not aware that fatal car accidents can happen, alcohol and speeding aside. This is really just sad with all the hateful comments. I doubt any of you are perfect.
    I love you Ryan, you bearded funny fuck.



  85. 85

    Re: okayokayokay – if you are gonna look at it that way you can also say that his friend killed himself (suicide) because he CHOOSE to get in the car, shut up and stop being so judgementel ALL OF YOU, like the people on here are perfect
