Bam Margera - Bam Margera Upsets Animal Rights Group With Sick Puppy Joke

Animal rights activists have taken aim at JACKASS star Bam Margera for posting a picture online showing his pitbull puppy with a toy gun held to its head.

The actor took a shot of himself holding his pet terrier at gunpoint and uploaded the photo on Twitter.com last week (begs01Oct12) alongside a caption which read, "Penny pooped in my bed. Not too fond of that. If it happens again, Penny goes Bye Byes!"

The snap has since been censored by bosses at the social networking site due to its "sensitive content", and now the 33 year old has spoken out to clarify his comment, insisting he would never harm his pet.

He tells Philly.com, "Just hurting another animal is rude, crude, and more."

And the daredevil hopes his fans understood he wasn't being serious about the threat: "I feel like every follower I have on Twitter knows my Jacka** joking kind of humour."

But a spokesperson for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals isn't laughing - he states, "He (Margera) missed the mark on this one."
