In unsettling videos, Bam Margera expresses his feelings about the upcoming Jackass 4 movie and his stuntman co-stars. Margera claims that he has been fired or shut out of Jackass 4, and he urged fans to boycott the movie.
In the since-deleted videos posted to social media and first reported by TMZ, Margera claims that he concocted ideas for the prank film, but he has since been exiled from the movie. Margera alleges, “I wrote them so many ideas, and if I’m not in the movie, and they use my ideas, how do you think that that’ll make me feel?”
The beleaguered Margera urged his fans to boycott Jackass 4. “If anybody cares about me don’t go see their movie,” he said. Instead, he begged his fans to send him money. “I will make mine way f*cking radder if you just Venmo me a dollar,” Magera stated.
The 41-year-old reality TV star said filming the movie put him through hell for a year and a half, claiming that he was forced to take anti-depressant pills and record video of him taking the pills as proof.
“Jackass does not care about me, understand that ladies and gentlemen,” Margera mutters. “It’s like, it was like my family, that won’t let me in because they say I’m out there being a jackass on TMZ. So I can’t be in Jackass because I’m out there being a jackass?”
In the bleak and troubling video, Margera talked about having suicidal thoughts. He claims that his wife, Nikki Boyd, caught him searching “how to tie a noose” on the internet. She doesn’t say anything during the worrying footage.
“If you’re a fan of mine, you would understand the f*cking pain that I’m going through,” a disheveled Margera said.
At one point in the heartbreaking video, Margera gets overwhelmed with emotion and appears to vomit. “Jackass was everything to me,” Margera says before puking.
Margera, who has struggled with substance abuse problems for years, admitted that he chugged a glass of wine and seven beers before posting the since-deleted videos.
Bam said he now lives in Oceanside, California, where, “I met new friends that I love.”
Margera said he spent 90 days in rehab, which cost him $90,000. Margera went to rehab in September of 2019.
Jackass 4 is said to star Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Preston Lacy, Chris Pontius, Ehren McGhehey, and Dave England.
Last year, Margera posted a video that he was involved with Jackass 4, and Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O got her while performing stunts on the second day of filming. Margera said the pranksters injured themselves while attempting to jump onto a moving treadmill while carrying musical instruments. Margera also claimed that he got hurt and showed off some scars.
The movie, which is being produced by MTV Films and Gorilla Flicks, is slated to be released on September 3, 2021.
