Margera also called Dunn "the happiest person ever, the smartest guy. He had so much talent, and had so many things going for him. This is not right, not right."

Police believe Dunn was driving his Porsche at 130 miles an hour when he crashed into guardrail and ran off into the woods, where his car was engulfed in flames.

Ebert sparked outrage online after calling out Dunn for drinking. Blogger Perez Hilton called him insensitive, to which Ebert replied, "Perez Hilton's readers agree with me and not with Perez about my tweet on Ryan Dunn. He drank, he drove, 2 people died."

Margera's mom, April, was the first one to confirm the news of Ryan's death to a local radio station in Pennsylvania.
