Ryan Dunn, one of the stars of MTV’s “Jackass,” died Monday in a car crash at the age of 34. Although his friends and co-stars, including Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O, made statements shortly after the news broke, Dunn’s longtime friend Bam Margera was noticeably silent.

Late Monday night, the “Viva La Bam” star broke his silence to address his friend’s death on Twitter. But the tweet wasn’t a straightforward tribute like some may have expected. Instead, Margera was defending his late friend against film critic Roger Ebert, who tweeted, “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”

While the cause of accident is still being determined, many were quick to come to the conclusion that Dunn was under the influence of alcohol at the time of his death. Shortly before the crash, which also killed a passenger who is being identified by NBC Philadelphia, Dunn posted a picture of himself drinking at a bar. However, an autopsy has not been completed and DUI was not checked as a cause of the crash on the initial accident report.

Margera responded to Ebert’s comment in an irate, if not completely coherent tweet: “I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of [expletive] roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents. … About a jackass drunk driving and his is one, [expletive] you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat [expletive] mouth!”

Ebert received immediate criticism about the tweet, with gossip blogger Perez Hilton declaring it “insensitive.” Ebert defended himself, later tweeting, “Perez Hilton’s readers agree with me and not with Perez about my tweet on Ryan Dunn. He drank, he drove, 2 people died.”

UPDATE: It appears that Ebert’s Facebook page is back up and running. Even though the page was only down for about an hour, it looks like the story here remains the relative ease at which upset parties can take down someone’s page.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: It looks like a couple of people upset about Roger Ebert’s comments yesterday have taken the only action they can – tattling to Facebook. It appears that the individuals have used Facebook’s page complaint mechanism and reported Ebert’s page as malicious or obscene.

Yesterday, following the death of Jackass star Ryan Dunn in a car wreck, Chicago Sun-Times critic Roger Ebert took to Twitter to express his feelings. After first saying “Ryan Dunn, RIP” Ebert attacked Dunn’s poor decision making. He tweeted that “friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.” There are multiple reports that Dunn was drinking prior to the crash. His passenger was also killed in the incident.

The comment sparked a debate across the interwebs – was it too soon? First off, was Ebert correct? Even in the wake of a tragic death, should we not forget that Dunn (allegedly) chose to drink and drive, endangering the lives of others? Many believed the comments were callous no matter what you feel about drunk driving, as Dunn has friends and family who cared about him. Others say Ebert simply spoke the truth.

Comments on an article about the incident yesterday on WebProNews suggested that most felt that Ebert’s remarks were insensitive. In defending himself, however, Ebert linked to Perez Hilton’s article on his tweet. As Ebert suggests, the majority of those commenters feel that his remark was justified and true –

Fast forward to the last hour, and Ebert tweets about his Facebook account –

He posted this picture of Facebook’s notice of his account removal –

This isn’t the first time Roger Ebert has run into Facebook trouble. Pranksters have had his Facebook page taken down before with complaints, based on opinions of Ebert’s that the didn’t like. Also, Facebook once removed his blog post detailing his jaw surgery, calling it “abusive content.” Ebert said that his blog entry had been “idiotically blocked” by Facebook.

Brandon Cole “Bam” Margera was born on September 28th, 1979 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bam_Margera

September 28th, 1979

September 28th

9 + 28 +2+0+1+0 = 40 = his personal year (from September 28th, 2010 to September 27th, 2011) = Roger Ebert.

[Numerologically, a person’s life lesson number stands for themself.  Roger Ebert was born on June 18th, 1942.  6 + 18 +1+9+4+2 = 40 = Roger Ebert’s life lesson number.

Bam’s 40 year indicates that he will be interacting with Roger Ebert (whose life lesson number is 40).]

40 year + 5 (May) = 45 = his personal month (from May 28th, 2011 to June 27th, 2011) = Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.  The f*** word.

[So the combination of Bam’s 40 year and 45 month indicates his actual experience.  He experienced the deep pain (45) of Ryan Dunn’s death, and he told Roger Ebert (40 (his life lesson number)) “F*** you!” (45).]

45 month + 20 (20th of the month on Monday June 20th, 2011) = 65 = his personal day = Swearing.  Cussing.

his undoing number = CM = 34 = Car crash.

[So one can see how devasting Ryan Dunn’s death is to Bam.]

June 18th, 1942

June 18th

6 + 18 +2+0+1+1 = 28 = his personal year (from June 18th, 2011 to June 17th, 2012) = Daredevils.  Recklessness.

28 year + 6 (June) = 34 = his personal month (from June 18th, 2011 to July 17th, 2011) = Car crash.  Lashing out.  Generating a buzz.

34 month + 20 (20th of the month on Monday June 20th, 2011) = 54 = his personal day = Facebook.

34 month + 21 (21st of the month on Tuesday June 21st, 2011) = 55 = his personal day = Bad idea.
