Bam Margera shocked his more-than 800,000 Twitter followers when he posted a photo of him holding a fake gun to his puppy’s head, with a message that read if the dog made a mess in his bed again, “Penny goes Bye Byes.” Margera then tweeted a series of photos in which he held the toy gun up to his friends’ faces.

Animal rights activists were not amused by the Jackass star’s puppy prank. SPCA spokesman Rich Britton released a statement, saying Margera “missed the mark on this one.”

Now, Margera has released his own apology. 

Margera, 33, told reporters at his Philadelphia home that he condemns animal abuse and didn’t mean any harm by the photographs.

“I think those people need to go down,” he said animal abusers. “Just hurting another animal is rude, crude, and more.”

However, the former MTV star, who said he doesn’t even own a gun, told the media that he was only joking. “I feel like every follower I have on Twitter knows my Jackass joking kind of humor,” he said.
