“Jackass” star Bam Margera has apologised over the photo he posted on Twitter showing him holding his puppy with a toy gun pointed to its head.
Margera, 33, said he did not mean any harm by the photo and condemned animal abuse. He says it was only a joke and wished he had made it clearer the gun was not original.
I feel like every follower I have on Twitter knows my Jackass joking kind of humour,” he said.
He tweeted the photo saying that if the dog made a mess in his bed again “Penny goes Bye Byes.”
According to AP, Chester County SPCA officials, however, say it wasn’t funny, even for a shock comedian like Margera.
SPCA spokesman Rich Britton says Margera “missed the mark on this one.”
