This made me cry. All you heartless, ignorant, pathetic, s***-bucket losers can go jump. I bet none of you even knew who the hell he was except that he was from Jackass.

Yo Sparky...Try using punctuation marks. As it stands, your pathetic message serves only to highlight the fact that you, like most of Brandon Margera's supporters, are a drooling idiot.

7-1-11 I'm in the Music industry & Hard 4 me 2 write 'Sorry it happened dude'..I'm spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THIS ANYWAY! Have U all seen the Memorial VID 4 RYAN DUNN? In a word...
'SPECTACULAR!' I laughed & I cried..then a sigh of calm, being at Peace, to know that Ryan(& Zach)R in 'HEAVEN' w/'GOD'
(George Burns)..away from this Questionable world..Gangs,Wars, Tragedy's,Ozone Layer,too Hot too cold,2 much SNOW..Tsunami's,
Hurraicaine's, Tornado's,Earthquakes,FIRES,Floods, Mudslides, Drug Dealers,Drug Users,Alcoholics..BARS OVER SERVING PATRONS & NOT CALLING THEM A TAXI!=(Should Go 2 Jail if it took their Lives!& Shut the Place down & HEAVY FINES). JOHNNY KNOXVILLE &JACKASS CREW(Steve O./p.i. book On NY X's Best seller List.
[I should check. Maybe he's trying 2 pull an Ashton Kutcher's
'PUNK'd'on me.] Go figure! Who knew? Who knew he could write? AhHa:D Hey look..'The KING..DON RICKLES would tell Him the same!Steve-O. would be'Roasted by DON!' I mean C'mon.. HE Has a HUGE Tattooed Pix of His HEAD on his BACK! Was he w/ Charlie Sheen.. when that went Down? Mike,a fan(?)has 1 bigger of'MIKE'!
Stevo O.'s H.S.YEAR Bk.PIX & What he wrote back then...was
visionary! He ends it w/'The Stones'..'Goodbye Ruby Tueday'
lyrics! Fun Stuff 2 read.)***JACKASS Johnny &(SteveO.??) They GAVE ME A FN 'STAR'(like 'Hollywood Blvd.)&'TOP COMMENTOR'at Facebook! Haha:D(maybe'Markie MARK['NOT'WHALBERG']'The Social Network Dude'at FB did!)I inquired 2 Johnny as to"How long can I hold my title & star At Facebook?"(I also Get them at Yahoo& YouTube) JOKINGLY, I wrote "with all the Ryan Dunn comments,I'm going to be behind'STEVE O.-P.I'on the NY X's Best seller List..& STEVE O. Can go on & compete with JAMES GRISHAM Novels!" Fully NOT knowing He did make the Best seller list on the NY X's!(going 2 check)
** Well, I write alot of Legal briefs(particularily about the NET STALKERS that want & R stealing vids & Identity Theft! NOT ON MY WATCH! I've been a 'victim of that' well as a victim of being hit by a 'Drunk Driver',as a pedestrian,& the Driver left the scene to his DR.DAD's home in Great Neck,NY for 3 Days. Because I had a 'Guardian Angel' from the oncoming lane who saw what happened,(as did many who did Nothing..Nor the Drunk Drivers on Early New Yrs a.m. who were"DRIVING AROUND ME ON THE DOUBLE LINES!" That's Unconcionable! I was thrown 30 feet to the double yellow lines Unconcious..woke 2 what I thought was HEAVEN..people standing over me who were neighbors I never met or SAW before. A DR. was the 'Guardian Angel' He went 2 the corner Payphone(Remember those days?)& called '911'& called in the TAG#. The guy was caught 3 days AFTER New Yrs. so by then any alcohol is GONE any other Drugs..I don't know. He was arrested, booked, had violations with DMV up the A#%! Rich kid bought himself a Madison Ave. Atty..went2 a JURY Trial& in what seemed like Min's the JURY found Him GUILTY on several Counts. BUT BACK IN THE DAY..they didn't have the DWI & Leaving the scene as Strong as it is today. You Get shipped via the Judge 2 PRISON! So he basically got a 'slap on the Wrist' & paid HEFTY FINES..which go2 theCourt(Income).I can walk But have damage to my Spinal disks, & creeps up on U over time!

:O" DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE! IF U PARTY, GIVE THE KEYS TO THE OWNER/BARTENDER & INSTRUCT THEM TO CALL YOU A TAXI! OR HAVE A 'STRAIGHT' DESIGNATED DRIVER GET YOU HOME! IT'S NOT WORTH IT TO TRY & BE 'COOL' WITH YOUR FRIENDS..OR TO BE 'CHALLENGED!' IT'S 'BOGUS!' I'M HERE TO LIVE & WRITE ABOUT IT! I'M JUST LOOKING OUT! I HAVE A FRIEND..THAT IS A CARBON COPY OF RYAN..& DID 3 YRS. FOR HIS 2nd DWI & MAXED OUT SO HE CAN 'DRINK AGAIN' WITH OR WITHOUT A CAR! YOU SAW & HEARD THE DEVASTATING NEWS OF RYAN & ZACHARY HARTWELL (who also was Drunk)& UNFORTUNATE HE GOT INTO THE PORSCHE THAT BECAME A 'WEAPON' THE MINUTE RYAN LEFT THE LOT! I Still say the BAR is held to a higher standard & held Liable for 'Over Serving Alcoholics' & For NOT Calling a TAXI to get them both home in 1 piece! (Someone posted on this on another TMZ Ryan Dunn site..that he had 23 Car Accidents. If HE did time then he paid his Debt to 'society.' If he was a repeat offender of DWI, he should have gone to Prison..which only dries U out until they release U & all U want is a beer or drugs. If that were the case, than the JUDGE should be in Jail! Many Judges have Favortism or payoffs 2 let the client go. Pari******on Or Lindsay did 23 days or less & cried their
'ASSES' off! I have a motto: "PUT A 'D' ON YOUR CHEST & DEAL WITH IT!" (or 'H' & 'Handle it.')

HAHAHA! Heartbreaking!? Really? Was I watching the wrong video? That was the PHONIEST emotional breakdown I've ever seen. Ryan Dunn is an idiot and only has himself to blame for being dead and lets not forget he KILLED another person.
F*CK Ryan Dunn

We've got some genuinely self-centered c*nts up in this comment thread.

He seems like he was in shock from it. I don't know if any of you have lost a loved one, but this is just about the same way I reacted when my dad died. And I loved him more than anything. So don't call him a attention whore. He's really tore up over it. Give him a ******* break. Jesus Christ.
