Despite angering fans of “Jackass” performer Ryan Dunn with a tweet that many considered insensitive, and despite having his Facebook page briefly suspended, Roger Ebert has continued to to tweet about the star’s death, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"I should clarify: Anyone who drinks and drives is a jackass," he tweeted Tuesday. "That included me in my drinking days. Some are lucky enough to find sobriety."
He didn’t mention Dunn by name, although the tweet comes after he caused a backlash on Monday with a tweet that read, “Friends don’t let Jackasses drink and drive."
Dunn, a star of MTV’s "Jackass," was driving 130 mph at the time of the crash, according to police.
Ebert also on Tuesday sent a separate link to a 2009 column titled "My Name Is Roger, and I’m an Alcoholic," about his efforts to stop drinking three decades ago, the story notes.
