Bam Margera Posts Pictures Of Himself Holding A Gun To A Puppy, Then Issues An Apology
Jackass star and skateboarder Bam Margera has a knack for pissing the public off. This time, he went a little too far by posting photos of him holding a gun to a puppy’s head on his Twitter account. That is just wrong, dude.
It turns out that the gun was fake. He also made a public apology. Here is the apology from philly.com:
In Chester County (Pennsylvania), which has seen a number of cases of horrific animal abuse recently, SPCA spokesman Rich Britton called the picture “not funny” and said that, even for a shock comedian, Margera “missed the mark on this one.”
In an interview Monday at his Chester County compound – home also to his six cats – Margera said that had he known about the incidents of torture, he never would have posted the photo.
“I think those people need to go down,” he said of the abusers. “Just hurting another animal is rude, crude, and more.”
Margera said that he doesn’t even own a gun, and that the only time he ever fired one was at a clay pigeon at a sporting event.
Still, he said, sometimes a joke is just a joke.
“I feel like every follower I have on Twitter” – more than 800,000 – “knows my Jackass joking kind of humor,” he said.
He was even posting pictures of him holding the fake gun at people as well.
Alrighty Bam, you usually do funny things, but this time, it’s no laughing matter mang.
