Ryann died in a drunk driving accident, now they have fans drink a toast at a concert before leaving to drive home? I don't get it. Hopefully the toast was of gatorade or something.

I'm so sick of these aholes glorifying this white trash that had more than TWICE the legal limit of alcohol in his system who then thought could drive 140 MPH!!! There are no ifs about it. HE KILLED SOMEONE. But it was someone who was also drunk who was dumb enough to get into his car. War hero or not. The lucky thing is that he didn't plow into someone innocently driving their car coming the other way. That's the only good thing about this whole thing. We're not trolls. We actually have the ability to see the truth. Something you morons can't. And no, we won't get over it. YOu drink, you drive, YOU DIE!!!

Now you white trash pieces of s*&t, celebrate that.

I don't memba him, but, now I guess we'll never see him all growed up.

Drinking and speeding is a guaranteed way to death. He got what he deserved.

Later, b*tch!

haha "have a toast", yeah then take a drink, then drive home.

They should speak out against drunk driving rather than further encourage it.

Drunk or not Ryan Dunn wanted to see if he could survive a car crash. Well he didn't, if someone is that stupid to try to survive a carsh then he deserves to die. I don't feel sorry for that "Clown".
"Stupid is what Stupid Does", and he was STUPID.

This is who these idiots diefy - not the real heroes in this world, oh no! They idolize some guy who got drunk and made the choice to get behind the wheel of a car and go in excess of 100 MPH until his car left the road like a speeding rocket and embedded itself in a tree where it exploded into flames and both persons, including the dolt who was driving, were incinerated. Great ... let's all raise our glasses to him. This is just sickening.

I am sorry for the deaths, but drinking and driving at 140 miles/hour is not an accident. He should be remembered as what not to do behind a wheel. In addition to his innocent passenger, he could have killed many others. This is no hero.

Its about as safe as being a Syrian street protester.
