Ryan Sheckler -- On Warpath Over Vaporizer Picture

1/15/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Sheckler just declared war on a website -- over a picture in which the pro skater unintentionally shows off a giant device used to inhale marijuana -- and he won't stop until it's taken down for good.

Sheckler -- who originally posted the pic to his Twitter account -- was modeling a new hat from his big sponsor Red Bull ... but unfortunately, he didn't seem to notice the ridiculous space-age vaporizer sitting behind him on a coffee table.

The pic -- which has since been deleted from his Twitter -- was reposted on TheDirty.com under the headline "Lay Off the Ganja Sheckler" ... and now the Sheckmeister is royally pissed, claiming the site is ruining his good name.

Sheck's lawyer fired off a cease and desist letter to the gossip site on Thursday -- demanding they remove the incriminating pic stat ... or face the wrath of the law. As of now, the pic is still up.

There is no copyright attached to pictures posted on Twitter as far as I know and since he posted it, there's no way he didn't know the thing was there lol!! He can ask, but he made the pic available to the public domain and anyone visiting his site would already have seen the thing, so I doubt the other site has done any more damage to his reputation than his own Twitter page did lol!!
BTW Just as a pointer, this is the very reason people are advised not to put up pics of their kids dressed up etc, anybody can access the site and print off the pictures, it's a favorite of paedophiles!! You can't stop them and some paedo is enjoying himself with a picture of your kids until the ink runs out, even from Facebook!!

thedirrty.com is so lame!!! I clicked on the link and now I feel I should clean my history, like i have been watching porn or something. Its not nsfw but it's pretty trashy.

On another note everyone in this industry smokes weed so there is really no need for him to get his panties in a bunch. He is trying no to pollute the air so he should be giving himself a pat on the back.

Stupidity at it's finest    

Ryan thinks THAT is ruining his reputation??? Wow, I personally know this kid and he has SERIOUS drug problems way worse than marijuana. Anyone who knows this kid, knows the truth. Someone needs to put his a$$ in a rehab.
