Little Jackass

Wallison Costa, 11 year old boy genius, decided to ignore the warnings in Jackass Number Two and threw himself out of a bedroom window in his northeast rowhome. Neighbors claim he and his friends are “crazy kids” who play on the roof, cut school, and walk around the neighborhood in the middle of the night shooting a bb gun. Unsurprisingly, Wallison’s mother could not be reached for comment, and DHS is now involved. The beloved Bam Margera’s publicist has been mute thus far as well.

I’ve never been a fan of the Jackass series, movies or any of Bam’s work. It’s not so much the physical stunts I didn’t care for, but his complete disrespect and disregard towards his parents. Sure, kids will sometimes imitate stunts they see on TV. Remember Beavis and Butthead? They or one of their friends ends up hurt – lesson learned. However, encouraging kids to ignore their parents can have deeper and more far-reaching consequences. Perhaps Wallison’s mother did her best to control his behavior, and did warn him not to try to imitate the jackasses. But why listen to her? He wanted to be cool like Bam.
