When Jackass celebrity Ryan Dunn drove his Porsche at speeds above 132 mph, as a public figure he left himself and his actions open to the interpretations of others – millions of others: famous others, fringe others, and others in the news. Everybody. So while few are surprised that Dunn’s toxicology report confirms he was driving while
shit-faced, we should also take it as a given that celebrity man-children will throw their tantrums over comments made about Dunn’s accountability (or lack thereof).
Of course, it will still be little more than another boring tantrum thrown by a pampered crybaby, which happens every 14 seconds. Nothing said will change the single unfortunate and highly idiotic thing that will forever mar Ryan Dunn’s memory. Considering how young he was, the financial security he enjoyed, the number of people he influenced, and all of Dunn’s potential for future good works or giving back to the
community or just lending his celebrity status to the good works of others…all of it is wasted. Wasted on a drunken joyride that no famous friend’s support or derision for commentators can reverse. Ryan Dunn will now be known for waste. That’s it. And nothing anyone says or screams or writes will ever change that.
