Roger Ebert says he was “probably too quick to tweet” when he posted on Twitter about “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn, who died in a fiery car crash.

Ebert tweeted that “friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.” The message prompted a landslide of posts on Ebert’s Facebook page. The Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago movie critic posted a message from Facebook early Tuesday saying his page was removed for violating Terms of Use.

Ebert responded, asking Facebook on Twitter why his page was removed. He wrote that it “makes you look bad.”

A few hours later, Ebert tweeted that his Facebook page was “back online.” Facebook apologized and says Ebert’s page was “removed in error.”

Dunn was killed Monday. Police say speed may have been a factor in the crash.
