Bam Margera calls for 'Jackass 4' boycott after alleged firing

Bam Margera, star of MTV’s “Jackass,” is calling for a boycott of the fourth installation of the stunt movie.

Magera, 41, has raised concerns about his mental health after posting a since-deleted series of disturbing videos detailing his grievances with the film, slated to come out in September.

Although he’s still listed on the cast list for the movie on IMDb, he claims he was shut out of the production.

“I’m not in ‘Jackass 4,’ and if anybody cares about me don’t go see their movie because I will make mine way f – – king radder if you just Venmo me a dollar,” he says in the first of two videos preserved by TMZ.

He alleges in the video that some of his concepts were used for the film. Reps for the show’s director and writer Jeff Tremaine, as well as writer and star Johnny Knoxville, did not respond to The Post’s requests for comment.

“I wrote them so many ideas, and if I’m not in the movie, and they use my ideas, how do you think that that’ll make me feel?” he said about his claim. 

He also says that authorities from Paramount Pictures allegedly forced him to take antidepressants. A rep for Paramount didn’t respond to The Post’s requests for comment.

“‘Jackass’ was everything to me,” he says at the end of the video before beginning to cry, dry heave and then vomit. He later admitted that he drank beer and wine before sharing the claims.

Previous reports have detailed other “Jackass” stars’ off-screen struggles with substance abuse.

In the second video, he goes into more detail about his emotional pain.  

“If you’re a fan of mine, you would understand the f – – king pain that I’m going through,” he says, panning to his wife, Nikki, who is standing in the doorway, looking upset, then back to himself in rapid succession. “If anybody cares about me at all, then throw me a f – – king bone and send a dollar to this Venmo.”

He goes on to admit that, after becoming extremely bored at home and feeling like he was “living in Groundhog Day,” Nikki found him “on the interweb typing in how to tie a noose,” and the couple subsequently moved. Now, they live in Oceanside, California. “I met new friends that I love,” Margera goes on, but he is still disturbed by his non-inclusion in the upcoming “Jackass” sequel.

At the end of the video, he pleads with fans to “Boycott ‘Jackass.’ ”

Nikki remains quiet throughout, periodically throwing Bam concerned looking faces.

“‘Jackass’ does not care about me, understand that ladies and gentlemen. It’s like, it was like my family, that won’t let me in because they say I’m out there being a jackass on TMZ. So I can’t be in ‘Jackass’ ’cause I’m out there being a jackass?” he asks, his voice cracking, before scratching his head vigorously.

Margera, who has been open about his struggles, has been in rehab several times over the years, and even once begged Dr. Phil for help in 2019. In a lengthy post, he asked the TV doctor to help him fix his life that is “in shambles.”

“Dr. Phil, I need your help in a big, big way,” a distressed Margera said in his video post, rocking dark shades and a gold chain. “My family is in shambles. It’s worse than it’s ever been, ever.”

He later appeared on the show and checked into rehab that month.

Billie Eilish reveals what makes her 'wanna jump off a cliff'

Billie Eilish’s biggest fear is being a “Bad Guy” to her fans.

“I wanted to be the artist that I would want to be a fan of,” Eilish, 19, revealed on the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Tuesday night. “The idea that somebody could meet me and have a bad experience makes me wanna jump off a cliff, like, seriously. I want everyone that I come in contact with to feel completely just the highest high that they could possibly feel.”

The alt-pop princess, whose documentary, “Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry” premieres on Apple TV+ Friday, also reflected on her year in quarantine after canceling her “Where Do We Go?” world tour after just three shows last March. 

“It felt, um, the same as it felt for everybody else. It was so weird,” said Eilish. “Like, none of the year went at all the way I thought [it would], and … I really think that’s for everyone, obviously. I think I’m just glad that I had the year before that to really have a moment.”

But the five-time Grammy winner found a silver lining on lockdown.

“The year sucked, and if I could go back and change it, I would, but at the same time, I’ve gotten more time off than I’ve ever ever ever ever had,” said Eilish. “And of course I think that goes for everyone. But that was true for me after two weeks of it. Two weeks already at the beginning of quarantine was the most time I had off in, like, four years.”

Eilish also found the creative space to make the much-anticipated follow-up to her debut album, 2019’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”

“I just don’t think I would have made the same album or even the album at all if it weren’t for COVID,” she said. “That doesn’t mean it’s, like, about COVID at all. It’s just that when things are different in your life, you’re different. It’s just how it is. I have to thank COVID for that — and that’s about it.”

Harry Shearer no longer voicing black ‘Simpsons’ character

Harry Shearer no longer voicing black 'Simpsons' character

Another white “Simpsons” voice actor has stepped down from lending his pipes to a character of color. 

According to The Wrap, Harry Shearer, who is white, will no longer voice the black character Dr. Hibbert. He’ll be replaced by Kevin Michael Richardson (“Bless the Harts”) in next Sunday’s episode, “Wad Goals.”

Shearer has voiced Springfield’s most skilled doctor — in contrast to Hank Azaria’s incompetent Dr. Nick — since 1990. He also voices Ned Flanders and Principal Skinner, among other characters, and Fox confirmed to The Post that he will continue voicing the other roles.

He joins Azaria, who last year announced that he’d no longer voice the Indian character Apu — in part after a 2017 documentary, “The Problem with Apu,” brought attention to the subject. Azaria still voices a wide range of characters on the show, such as Moe and Chief Wiggum.

“The Simpsons” is far from the only animated series to address this topic in recent months.

After the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement over the summer of 2020 following the killing of George Floyd, “Family Guy” actor Mike Henry, who is white, announced that he was stepping down from voicing the black character Cleveland. Arif Zahir has since taken over that role.

On Netflix’s “Big Mouth,” Jenny Slate stepped down from voicing Missy — Ayo Edebiri has since taken over the role — and Apple TV+ series “Central Park” re-cast bi-racial character Molly, who was originally voiced by Kristen Bell and is now done by “Umbrella Academy” star Emmy Raver-Lampman.

“The Simpsons” is currently in Season 32, airing Sundays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
