Bam Margera, one of the original members of the Jackass franchise, shared his feelings about not being a part of the 2022 film Jackass Forever.
The stunt performer was allegedly booted from the sequel because of his drinking and substance use issues. Margera ended up suing for wrongful termination in August 2021, but he dropped the suit a few months later. In an appearance on the podcast Wild Ride With Steve-O, Margera indicated he has since celebrated a year of sobriety and made peace with everything that went down. "Everything [was] meant for a reason, and I'm much better off not being in [the film]," he explained. I'm happy to not be in it. I don't want to do that anymore. I don't want to be a part of it. I'm much happier without it."
