Steve-O says he cannot save 'dying' Bam Margera in emotional online post
Steve-O posted the message after Margera criticised Johnny Knoxville on Instagram.
In an emotional online post, Steve-O has said he cannot save his former Jackass co-star Bam Margera, who he describes as "dying".
Steve-O made the comments in response to a post on Instagram by Margera in which he slammed Jackass co-creators Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville.
Alongside a photo showing Knoxville, Margera and Steve-O together, Margera wrote: "One arm is a best friend who had my f*****g back all along, another arm is a poser. A pro creation thief.
"If Jeff Tremaine was in this photo, he would be to greedy to fit. F**k jeff. Remember I tattooed that on me long ago, Jeff? It’s because I knew who you were all along."
He then added: "Steve-O much love and respect."

Margera has been opening for Steve-O during his recent tour but had a falling out with Knoxville in recent years.
This was when Margera sued Knoxville and Paramount Pictures over wrongful termination from Jackass Forever, the fourth film in the stunt comedy series.
In a since-deleted comment, Steve-O responded to Margera's Instagram post, writing:
"Bam, last night you had your five-year-old son with you on stage at my show, and you were blessed with the chance to spend another day or two with him - then as soon as you left my show, you stayed up all night getting loaded enough to think it was a good idea to post more vile nonsense like this.
"I hope you understand how awful that is. You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen.
"I brought you on tour with me in hopes that I could get you to see what's possible for you if you choose recovery.
"I've tried everything I can, but I can't force you to get honest and do the work of recovery. I wish you could know how much I've hated feeling braced for news of your death, but you're making it clear that I have no other choice.
"You're dying, brother, and it sucks that I can't do anything to save you."
