Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Ryan Dunn's Funeral

by at . Comments

The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again.

The notorious, radical Kansas group responsible for protests at the funerals of gay rights supporters, Iraq war veterans, Elizabeth Edwards and innocent children alike, announced plans to picket the funeral of Jackass star Ryan Dunn.

In the news release, titled "Ryan Dunn is in hell!" Westboro calls for the picket due to "vulgar stunts" and involvement in MTV's Jackass franchise.

Dunn, R.

The 34-year-old Dunn perished in a car crash early Monday morning, along with friend Zachary Hartwell. Dunn was driving drunk and very fast.

Ryan's death has generated controversy in part due to comments by Roger Ebert, who criticized his apparent drunk driving the very same day.

It's clear Dunn's bad decision making played a role in his demise, along with Hartwell's. But both men deserved to be buried in peace and remembered fondly by those close to them without Westboro Baptist Church's meddling.

We're not advocating any sort of violent confrontation by any means ... but let's just say if Bam Margera and the Jackass crew decided to f*%k with the Westboro peeps via some elaborate pranks, we wouldn't stand in their way.

The people who are going to hell are the immoral hate-mongers of the Westboro Bigot Church. They are a sick, obscene charicature of evil.

That is not a church. If they truly were then they would not be saying those things about someone who has passed . It does not matter what the cause of the persons death was , the fact is they have paid the ultimate price for there mistakes and its time for people to get a life and leave the friends and family of these 2 men alone to mourn the loss of a loved one. It's amazing how far some people will go for publicity. Karma works in mysterious ways. people should remember that. If it was a loved one who belonged to this church that died in such a tragic way they would not be so happy to protest. He has paid his dues for his mistake now shut up and leave them to rest in peace. my prayers are with Ryan's family and friends . Especially Bam i know you must feel lost the past couple of days. Best wishes to you in this time of grief. Don't pay any attention to these low life's, you know who Ryan really was and that's all that matters.

Don't really care that this idiot died. Anyone that gets wasted and then drives their Porsche 140 MPH is endangering not only themselves but everyone else on the road as well. Good riddance and please let me know when the next Jackass kicks the bucket by being a moron.
