BAM Margera, a stunt performer and reality star, has allegedly been axed from the upcoming Jackass 4 film.
Margera is calling for fans to boycott the movie, according to Movieweb.
What did Margera say about Jackass?
Bam Margera said he was not involved in Jackass 4 in a video posted on social media that would later be taken down, according to Movieweb.
"If anybody cares about me don't go see their movie," Margera said, according to the outlet.
He also asks fans to send him money using Venmo so he can "blow them out of the water."
Margera said he was fired from the movie for being a "jackass" and implied he was mulling suicide, according to the outlet.
When will Jackass 4 hit theaters?
Jackass 4 is slated to premiere in September despite delays due to the coronavirus outbreak and assorted injuries.
Margera reported that stars Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O were hospitalized on the second day of filming.
The pair were jumping on a full-speed treadmill while wearing “band equipment" when the accident took place.
Jackass was initially a television series that aired for three seasons on MTV.
Feature films followed, including Jackass: The Movie (2002), Jackass Number Two (2006), Jackass 3D (2010), and the upcoming Jackass 4.
"Johnny Knoxville and his band of maniacs perform a variety of stunts and gross-out gags on the big screen for the first time," reads the IMDb description for the first movie.
The first film featured Knoxville, Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, and many others.
The tv series premiered in 2000 and original episodes aired until 2002.
"Although the show was preceded by a stark warning against attempting to recreate any of the stunts performed in the show at home, some viewers decided to not heed the warning, and within six months of the show first airing on MTV, various accounts had emerged of teenagers injuring themselves trying to either recreate or emulate the show," Hannah Woodhead wrote in The Guardian in 2020.
"A group of Kentucky teenagers filmed their friend being hit by a car, while two others in Connecticut received severe burns attempting to recreate the Human Barbecue stunt which saw Knoxville attach steaks to a fireproof suit then hop on a grill.
"MTV refused to take any responsibility for the injuries, but Human Barbecue was not included with the Jackass DVD release."
The New York Times wrote that Jackass: The Movie is "like a documentary version of ''Fight Club,' shorn of social insight, intellectual pretension and cinematic interest."
