Film critic Roger Ebert was criticized as being insensitive for a tweet sent after news broke of "Jackass" performer Ryan Dunn’s fatal car crash, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ebert implied that Dunn’s car crash was the result of drunken driving when he wrote, "Friends don’t let Jackasses drink and drive," prompting a barrage of Twitter responses from fans of the late reality star, some of whom asked him to apologize.
While there has been speculation that drinking may have played a role in Dunn’s crash, since he tweeted photos of himself drinking shortly before the accident, the preliminary police report didn’t mention that as a possible cause. The report instead noted speed as a possible contributing factor.
As previously reported, Dunn, 34, was driving a customized Porsche 911 GT3 capable of speeds up to 190 mph when he crashed.
