Roger Ebert’s Facebook Page Taken Down Amid Ryan Dunn Controversy
10:23 am, June 21st, 2011
Yesterday, after news spread that Dunn and his passenger, friend Zachary Hartwell, were killed when their Porsche 911 hurtled off the road in West Goshen Township, PA and burst into flames, Ebert tweeted, “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”
He added, “He drank, he drove, 2 people died.”
After social media attacks against Ebert picked up steam, Facebook decided to take down his page.
Ebert expressed his anger over its the decision.
“Facebook has removed my page in response, apparently, to malicious complaints from one or two jerks,” he tweeted this morning.
He slammed the site’s actions, writing, “Facebook! My page is harmless and an asset to you. Why did you remove it in response to anonymous jerks?”
“Makes you look bad.”
Facebook later restored Ebert’s page
