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.

When I go home and forget to stop for milk, that is a mistake. Going to a bar, getting hammered, getting behind the wheel, and speeding down a dark curvy road is STUPID. That is beyond a mistake!! He took his own life into his hands and he paid the price. I do not feel sorry for those people who kill themselves, be it intentional or not. Ryan probably thought he was invincible and could do whatever he wanted. I have no respect or sympathy for him or others that take their own lives by driving drunk. If his family can't bare to read negative comments, I suggest they steer clear of an entertainment forum. I'm sure if this moron was responsible for killing your mother, father, sister, brother, wife, or husband, you wouldn't be so quick to sympathize with him and praise his "talent". He was a waste of life who did nothing but act like a retard for money. I won't lose a night's sleep over the loss.

Dunn lived more in his 34 years than most of us will our whole lives.

To those saying he deserved it, you really think YOU'RE somebody? Who is going to be truly saddened when you die? I know I won't be. Regardless of what you say, many people are heartbroken, those who knew him personally or on-screen. Stop handing out your life lessons on your cloud of judgement and worry about yourself.

I thought he had done everything with a car when he drove it up his butt. Guess I forgot the ole hammering a car into a ditch and dying the flaming wreckage trick. You topped yourself buddy!

Just happy that no innocents were killed when this idiot got behind the wheel drunk.......don't care what his family or friends are feeling.....wonder why they haven't made any statements about the sadness they feel for the passenger that was killed, oh well, that's the chances you take when you get in the car with a drunk driver..........do you think there's a special place in hell for drunk drivers who kill others....I certainly hope so!!

What a bunch of hateful morons. You can't wait until the autopsy results come in? And to "J" what is this Obama trash? What so you think he is? Frigin' MacGuyver? We'll be mopping up Bush's mess forever. Hell, we're still mopping up Reagan's mess, Nixon's too if you think about it. You people suck.
