Steve-O says that he can’t save his ‘dying’ Jackass co-star Bam Margera.

The pair are founding members of the famous stunt crew, alongside Johnny Knoxville, Ryan Dunn and Chris Pontius.

The series, which was both a TV programme and movie franchise, is extremely popular, with the films grossing more than $570 million at the box office.

Margera’s recent comments, though, have left Steve-O fearing the worst for his old friend.

Steve-O made the comments in response to Margera’s latest Instagram post slamming Jackass co-creators Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville.

Alongside a photo showing Knoxville, Margera and Steve-O, Margera wrote: “One arm is a best friend who had my f*****g back all along, another arm is a poser. A pro-creation thief.

“If Jeff Tremaine was in this photo, he would be to greedy to fit.

“F**k jeff. Remember I tattooed that on me long ago, Jeff? It’s because I knew who you were all along.”

He then added: “Steve-O much love and respect.”

Margera had a massive falling out with the pair after he was axed from the Jackass Forever movie.

But he has been opening for Steve-O during his recent Bucket List comedy tour.

Evidently concerned for his friend, Steve-O commented on Margera’s post saying that he wants to help him, but can’t and that ‘sucks’.

In a now-deleted comment, he wrote: “Bam, last night you had your five-year-old son with you on stage at my show, and you were blessed with the chance to spend another day or two with him.”

Steve-O continued: “Then as soon as you left my show, you stayed up all night getting loaded enough to think it was a good idea to post more vile nonsense like this.

“I hope you understand how awful that is. You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen.

“I brought you on tour with me in hopes that I could get you to see what’s possible for you if you choose recovery.

“I’ve tried everything I can, but I can’t force you to get honest and do the work of recovery.

“I wish you could know how much I’ve hated feeling braced for news of your death, but you’re making it clear that I have no other choice.

“You’re dying, brother, and it sucks that I can’t do anything to save you.”

Margera previously appeared on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast and explained how he was ‘basically pronounced dead‘.

The 43-year-old recalled an incident at a party in December 2022, where he suffered a number of near-fatal seizures, which would last between 10 and 20 minutes.

He also added that his tongue got so swollen it would no longer fit in his mouth.

Margera explained: “I did not know that I had like gnarly Covid, my body was shutting down and I went into four seizures.

“I bit my tongue so hard it was like nearly falling off, it got so swollen and puffy it wouldn’t fit in my mouth and I was drinking the infected blood which gave me pneumonia as well.”
