He is later updated followers after Hulk removed his comment, writing: “Hulk deleted the tweet, apologize now.”
Followers online was left behind in the war, with a tweet: “… has Bam margera’s dying?”

Others were quick to get the right Cam, with a tweet: “Bam margera’s is not dead, Hulkster,” while another laughed: “Hulk Hogan think Bam margera’s is death peak in 2018.”
Bam and Ryan Dunn were the stars of the MTV long-running joke TV show Jackass, which ran from 2000 to 2002 and brought three big screen adventures.
