Jackass star Bam Magera is telling fans to boycott the new film after claiming he’s been fired from the film.

Margera told his Instagram followers he had been dropped from the pranksters’ fourth big screen outing on Thursday (11 February).

The stunt performer, who has been a part of Jackass since it began in the early 2000s, expressed his concern that the director Jeff Tremaine will “use” his ideas without his permission.

“I wrote them so many ideas, and if I’m not in the movie and they use my ideas, how do you think that will make me feel?” he said. “The last thing I want to do is be in a courtroom with [Jackass 4 director] Jeff Tremaine, I love him.​”

He added: “But f***, man, I’m not inJackass 4? If anybody cares about me, don’t go see their movie, because I will make mine way f***ing radder if you just Venmo me a dollar.”

The videos have since been deleted.
