"Jackass" fans attack Ebert for Dunn Slam

Ebert Outrages "Jackass" fans with Dunn Slam


THR reports that "Jackass" fans took to Twitter to slam movie Critic Roger Ebert for his online remarks regarding Ryan Dunn.

Ebert posted a Twitter comment a few hours after Dunn's fatal auto accident, saying that "friends don't let jackasses drink and drive" -- obviously before an investigation had been conducted. Ebert did not apologize, and doubled down on his remarks after being attacked by fans.
