‘Got Ryan and Bam mixed up sorry Bam!!! HH,’ he later shared before deleting both messages on his account.

It’s unclear what sparked Hulk – real name Terry Gene Bollea – to send the messages over Memorial Day weekend. 

Margera’s co-star and longtime friend Ryan Dunn was killed in a traffic collision on June 20, 2011 in Pennsylvania after the Porsche he was driving ‘jumped a guardrail’ and flew into trees before bursting into flames and instantly killing both Dunn and his passenger Zach Hartwell,’ according to ABC.

Police reported that Dunn was ‘traveling at a speed between 132 and 140 at the time of his crash,’ and later revealed to have a blood alcohol level of .196 – more than twice the legal limit allowed in the state. 

The outlet reported that ‘Dunn had received at least 23 driving citations, including 10 for speeding and careless driving, in the 13 years before his fatal car accident.’

Hours before the fatal collision, Ryan had shared photos online drinking with friends at a local bar, with friends later confirming he had six drinks before getting behind the wheel of the vehicle. 

Bam was recently charged with two counts of driving under the influence in January, but avoided jail time by opting for probation, Alcoholic Anonymous meetings, and some fines and fees, according to TMZ.
