"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was drunk, with a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit, when his car sped through a guardrail in June, crashed into a tree and went up in flames, killing him and his passenger, Zachary Hartwell, in Pennsylvania. News of his death sparked a war between "Jackass" costar Bam Margera, who downplayed his friend's blood alcohol level as a cause of the crash, and noted film critic Roger Ebert. Ebert enraged many in the blogosphere with a tweet implying that Dunn was drinking and driving before official reports were released, and the backlash resulted in him issuing an apology for his words.
