Roger Ebert addresses Ryan Dunn tweet: not meant to be cruel
HollywoodNews.com: Roger Ebert has been getting some heat for his tweet about ‘Jackass’ star Ryan Dunn’s car accident, but he wants to clear up his intention with the message.
Ebert recently commented that he wasn’t trying to be cruel when he posted the tweet about friends not letting “jackasses” drive drunk, states TMZ. While he admits he probably sent the message too soon after the accident, he was trying to be true and honest.
Ebert did offer his sympathy to Dunn’s friends and family while admitting that he based the drunk driving remark off what was being assumed about the accident.
However, Ebert also stood by his message: “I do know that nobody has any business driving on a public highway at 110 mph, as some estimated — or fast enough, anyway, to leave a highway and fly through 40 yards of trees before crashing. That is especially true if the driver has had three shots and three beers. Two people were killed. What if the car had crashed into another car?”
