Bam Margera's Parents: Bam Is 'Devastated'

6/20/2011 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bam Margera is "devastated" after hearing news of his friend Ryan Dunn's death today -- and according to Bam's parents, they're worried about their son.

Bam Margera
April and Phil Margera sat for an emotional interview with MyFoxPhilly earlier today -- claiming, "We're just worried about Bam. He's out of town and was just told. He's devastated."

Bam's mom was especially choked up during the interview -- telling Fox, "I can't believe it ... [Ryan] was part of our family ... He always used to call me on Mother's Day."

I don't think anyone can say this enough...it was the passenger's choice to get in the car with Dunn. The guy was identified, and it was one of the guys in the viral picture taken at a bar before the accident.

I mourn for Ryan Dunn, like many others out there are doing right now. It hasn't been confirmed what exactly happened that night, but we do know that this world has lost someone that made a lot of people happy, and made them laugh.

If only the world were rid of the people that go around purposely making other people angry or sad. If only...

You insensitive, holier than thou jerk offs should find a better way to spend your time. Ever hear the saying, "If you don't have something nice to say..." yadda, yadda, yadda?

People are people, and they'll make mistakes. You idiots babbling about drinking and driving don't have all the facts, and none of you are perfect. We all know smoking is bad for you by now, but people are still doing it. I think the whole "drinking and driving" talk is really getting old. I'm pretty sure everyone knows that, and it doesn't need to be stated.

Furthermore, you can at least hold back on your rude comments until after the autopsy reports come back, and ya know, the family and friends of Ryan Dunn and his passenger have time to take a breath and try to put the pieces of their lives back together after they just lost someone they love. Why don't all you negativity spreaders tweet when a family member of yours passes away, and see how many people sit there and say "Yep they deserved to die, to hell with them." That'll make you feel better, right?

I'll never be able to make sense of why people like you live, and people like Ryan Dunn aren't as lucky. Why someone like Ryan has to be taken away from us, and you people continue to live. At least he brought happiness and laughter to the people that were blessed enough to be part of his life.

And what is it you do? Oh yeah, leave smart ass ignorant comments.

He obviously is very moved and shaken over this. He probably has never had to deal with something quite heavy and significant as this and its gonna take him a large portion of his remaining adult life to come to grips with it. They always did extreme things, but even this is far too extreme even for them. I wonder what Knoxville's reaction was.

i 2nd amy no one forced the other guy to get in the car with dunn. he did that all on his on i feel horrible for both of there friends and familys they are both with out a loved one for the rest of there lives. it dosent get any easier espeically for a parent to loose a child even thought dunn and the passanger where both adults they where still someones child friend brother boyfriend. i always loved both april and phill u can see the look on both of there faces there devistated cause they know they are parents bams parent if they lost bam it would be alot worse for them imagine how ryan & the passengers mom and dad feel about loosing there sons and reading all the basing going on online bout there sons. crulty isnt the best comfort to 2 sets of greiving loved ones

What if he was not drunk? more than likely seems he could have been.. but What if they left the bar just cruizing home and Ryan Had "Nox" in his ride then accidentally activating the button, car suddenly speeds up going out of control the maybe the nox system ignites into flames and causes him to lose further control having the accident?

maybe something just suddenly over heated or shorted out catching on fire in the car or under the hood driver panicked lost control and had accident.
so many other things it could have been
toxicoligy report is not out so why assume he was drunk till they prove it .

until proven otherwise this could some how just have been an unfortunate horrible accident that just happened.

Maybe some other random Mechanichal problem caused the loss of control.


What if Ryan let the other fellow drive the car and not being familiar with it loses control?

who knows... Certainaly not me any way.. But I'm not judging
prayers for Ryan and Zac's famliy...As Well as the Margera's who all were so close

Why do ppl talk so bad about these guys on Jackass...I mean they are still just like you and me...and you shouldn't be talking about Dunn like you all are doing...I mean he was a good guy and he did the shows to make money..I mean he had to pay his bills just like you and me do..I mean you all are talking about these guys and they just lost a really good friend..Dunn was Bam's brother & Ape & Phil was like his Mom & Dad...just bc they did things that you wouldn't do don't make them bad guys..bc just like I said they have to make there money to pay there bills too...RIP Dunn...he will be missed so much..and I will keep your Friends & Family in my Prayers...
