What's Been Posted on Roger Ebert's Facebook Page to Show Him How Insensitive He Is

Here's what Roger Ebert tweeted about “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn, who died in a car accident Sunday night following several drinks (6? More?) at a local bar:

  • Friends don't let Jackasses drink and drive.

Here's a small portion of what those who objected to Ebert's insenstive remarks posted on his Facebook page today:

  • Freak
  • douchebag
  • Show some respect... you know he has a family... you pinochio looking jerk wad
  • Enjoy ur cancer. I hope someone makes fun of you when you die.
  • Roger I hope you read all these posts on your wall so u can realize how much o an insensitive jerk you are. U are a terrible critic and u should go to hell.
  • How can you have a soul when you side with death over somebody's life. He put joy and laughter in the hearts of millions and millions of people since Jackass began.
  • All you insensitive pricks getting off on bashing somebody that tragically died will burn in hell. There is a special place in hell for you people.
  • I figured it out, Roger Ebert has no emotions because he is a robot. Robots have no emotions. Fear the robot dickwad revolution.
  • who is this roger guy? i read bams tweet about him! if bam catches him his gonna knock him out i say. ryan dunn was epic :D toy car & a condom need i say more.
  • it took such courage to shit all over the recently deceased. anyone could have said what you did. they just chose not to. you are not insightful but ignorant you smug prick
  • Roger Ebert is a dried up old has been. Siskel is not here to pack him anymore. The most pathetic thing, is that he is using Ryan Dunn's death like a defibrillator. He is using the death of someone popular to try and jumpstart his dead career.
  • I agree with Mr.Ebert. In addition, I believe Ebert should speak at Mr.Dunn's funeral to highlight the dangers of drunk driving....oh wait EBERT CAN'T SPEAK. Have fun with that cancer, fatty.
  • Dude u need to fuckin grow up u got fuckin probs making fun a ryan dying fuck u! u need to fucking grow up and stop making fun a peoples death! your fucking sick SO GROW UP AND GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF UR FUCKING ASS! U STUPID FUCK! POINT BLANK ENUFF SAID!

A small portion, as I said. Five minutes worth.

How many of those comments are anonymous/pseudonymous? 90%? 100%? Gutsy.

None of them. It's Facebook. Picture and everything. I assumed they merely “liked” his page in order to write the above.

Wow. Five minutes worth? Thirty seconds was all I could stand, and I'm a slow reader. Sheesh ... I hate that the guy died, really, but when I heard about this, it elicited the same reaction as when Steve Irwin died — no surprise at all. Sorry it happened, not surprised. You tease nature long enough (Steve), the chances of something bad happening increases; you fuck with danger long enough (Ryan) ...

I meant five minutes in real time. So I only went back to FB postings of about “Five minutes ago.” That was enough to get all of the above. Just sad.

And what you say, Jerry, is very very true.

I understand the fact that mocking someone postmortem might have been tactless and somewhat discourteous, but what Roger tweeted holds validity in its truest form. That may be why there's something in writing somewhere forbidding those under the influence of alcohol to get behind a wheel. It's not just a good idea, IT'S THE LAW!

Well, unless the people quoted in your list are defending drinking and driving, they're not presenting a very good example of the average fan/watcher of the “Jackass” movies.
