Johnny Knoxville:

'I Lost My Brother Ryan Dunn'

6/20/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Knoxville just took to Twitter -- expressing his sadness over the death of his friend, Ryan Dunn -- saying "Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie."


Johnny continued the post saying, "RIP Ryan , I love you buddy."

Knoxville and Dunn famously goofed off in the "Jackass" films together -- and from the sound of the tweet -- it appears they were pretty close.

TMZ also spoke with Jeff Tremaine -- who starred and directed the "Jackass" movies -- who told us, "I feel like I lost a brother. Ryan Dunn was family and we are all deeply devastated."

Wee Man has also tweeted -- "RYAN DUNN-- a super awesome memory was at the J RODY walston & the business show!!! I MISS YOU BUD!! You were always a happy kick-ass dude!!"

Dunn died in a car accident this morning in Pennsylvania -- when his car sped off the road and crashed into the woods. It was "fully engulfed in flames" when police arrived on the scene.

He just appeared on Minute to Win it with his friend Jhonny last Wedsnday. I don't know how this could happen. I know it probably taped a while back but still.

Yes this is tragic and he should not have been drinking but I get so sick of these MADD paid hacks not only undemocratically pressuring lawmakers and judges but crassly telling people to burn in hell, etc. all over the internet. Is this an indication of extreme hate or you people just desperate to get paid to post this flammable rhetoric? I hope it is the latter.

WOW! I can't believe how hateful people are. Two people are dead and that is always sad!!

Even a man of his size cannot drink 4 shots and 4 beers (if they are the usual volume of alcohol) in 4 hours and not have an unsafe blood alcohol level for driving. As tragic as this is, I'm still glad he did not kill anyone in another car. His passenger obviously got into the car knowing he should not have done so, unless he was also too impaired to make a better decision.
