Roger Ebert: My “Too Quick” Ryan Dunn Tweet “Not Intended As Cruel”
1:12 pm, June 21st, 2011
“I also regret that my tweet about the event was considered cruel. It was not intended as cruel. It was intended as true.”
While Ebert acknowledges that we don’t yet know whether alcohol contributed to the accident, he does say, “Nobody has any business driving on a public highway at 110 mph, as some estimated – or fast enough, anyway, to leave a highway and fly through 40 yards of trees before crashing.”
“That is especially true if the driver has had three shots and three beers,” writes Ebert, referring to Dunn’s reported consumption on the night of his death. “Two people were killed. What if the car had crashed into another car?”
Although Ebert defends his criticism of drunk driving and the message underlying his Twitter post, he does admit, “I was probably too quick to tweet. That was unseemly.”
