Hulk Hogan meant to write a touching tribute to late Jackass star Ryan Dunn on Twitter this week, but instead, he accidentally mourned the "loss" of Dunn's Jackass costar and longtime friend Bam Margera, who is actually still alive.
"Damn Bam I wish you were still with us, I sure would love to hang out again my brother," Hogan, 64, wrote in a since-deleted tweet on Monday that included a photo of himself and Margera. "Love u miss u HH."
Fans corrected the Hulkster's error online within minutes, and the longtime wrestler posted a followup indicating that he got Margera and Dunn, who died in 2011, "mixed up."
"Sorry Bam," Hogan added. That tweet has also been deleted.
What prompted Hogan's remembrance of Dunn is unclear. The late stuntman died in a drunk driving crash on June 20, 2011 in West Goshen Township. Jackass production assistant Zachary Hartwell was also killed in the crash.
Margera is currently on probation for a drunk driving incident in California earlier this year. California Highway Patrol officers arrested Margera on two counts of DUI in January after a traffic stop. Last year, he told the Inquirer's Jason Nark that Dunn's death put him on a destructive path with alcohol.
"It took me four beers to even feel normal," Margera said. "Drinking helped me get paid."
The pro skateboarder is also preparing to list his West Chester home, Castle Bam, on Airbnb for fans to rent this summer. April Margera, his mother, is currently renovating the property. He and wife Nicol Boyd welcomed their first child, Phoenix Wolf, in December.
Hogan, meanwhile, has had Philly-area stars on the brain lately. Earlier this month, he told TMZ that he would beat Sylvester Stallone, Rocky himself, in an actual fight. Hogan played wrestler Thunderlips, the Ultimate Male, in 1982's Rocky III. That match ended in a draw.
