Westboro Baptist Church fails to show up at Ryan Dunn's funeral

  • The WBC didn't bother protesting Ryan Dunn's funeral.

As Jackass fans mourned the drunk-driving death of show star Ryan Dunn this week, the Phelps family did what it does best: Issued an ugly press release filled with threats and hateful words that have been used so many times by now, they're meaningless.

The Westboro Baptist Church's release says, "Ryan Dunn is in hell! Drab pervert hawked porn-level filth (e.g. toy car up his rectum) to get rich off a perverse generation." The church said it would picket Dunn's funeral in Pennsylvania, but, Deadspin reports, the haters were a no-show.


Deadspin says some weird guy tried to get into the funeral and was

eventually taken away in a cop car, but he never claimed an affiliation

with the WBC. It's hard to blame them. Philadelphia is a long way to

drive to protest a guy who made his living harming himself for

others' amusement. Although, the site does make a good point -- Dunn

will be buried in Ohio, so the WBC still has a chance to make good on

their picket threat.

And in case you want to see the stunt that the WBC found so offensive, here's the video of him putting a toy car in rear.
