Westboro v. Jackasses

Whatever you think of the Jackass crew (I find them amusing) or the circumstances of Ryan Dunn’s death, this is a no-brainer. I hope the Jackass people do everything possible (within the boundaries of enforceable law) to make the Westboro slugs regret their next protest.


The radical Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to protest the funeral of “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn.

The Kansas-based organization, known for its stance against homosexuality and its protests at military funerals, sent out a press release touting that Dunn “is in hell.”

According to the group, Dunn’s fatal car accident in West Goshen, Pa., on Monday was the result of his behavior on the MTV reality series and corresponding films, in which he was often seen engaging in crazy – and sometimes sexual – stunts.

Westboro deemed Dunn a “drab pervert” and accused him of promoting “porn-level filth… to get rich off a perverse generation.”

“In His wrath, God cut off this young man in the prime of his life, because he made a mock of sin, and taught his fellow man to grievously sin against God!” the release said.
