Roger Ebert blames Ryan Dunn on Twitter

Roger Ebert blames Ryan Dunn Twitter

The secondary story to Ryan Dunn’s death yesterday was film critic Roger Ebert’s “insensitive” tweet that has enraged Ryan’s fans.

From Roger Ebert:

Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.

After the fans raged, Ebert did not back down:

Perez Hilton’s readers agree with me and not with Perez about my tweet on Ryan Dunn. He drank, he drove, 2 people died.

Obviously, we get the point of Ebert. It’s been a slogan in the media for years. Don’t drink and drive — we get it: you die, other people die and/or you get a ticket.

However, a dead man cannot defend himself. And Ryan has already paid the ultimate price for his alleged mistake. Obviously to Ebert, Ryan Dunn is just another statistic, not a man who will be missed by a lot of his fans.

Twitter is the devil I tell you.
