"I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of shit Roger Ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents.

“Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan , I love you buddy,” wrote Johnny Knoxville.
“I don't know what to say, except I love Ryan Dunn and I'm really going to miss him,” tweeted Steve-O.
