Bam Margera, Hollywood 'Jackass,' Knocked Out by Girl at SXSW Music Conference
Wham, Bam, no thank you m'am.
Bam Margera has performed a lot of death-defying stunts. He's even been shot by a ball bearing in an incident so painful it left him crying. Such is the life of a skateboarder-turned-star of the Hollywood Jackass film franchise.
But getting his ass kicked on camera apparently didn't prepare Margera for the fist of fury of a ... girl.
That's right, Margera was knocked out by a girl during last week's SXSW festivities in Austin. But the coolest thing about the episode was ...
... Margera's attitude.
He admitted it all to TMZ.
He said he was walking through a hotel party Thursday night when someone called him out in a not-so-friendly way. In response, he made fun of a big girl in the group, calling her a "beached whale."
Then came the punches. From a guy. Margera engaged, and the two ended up on the ground, where the woman in question delivered a blow that put him out cold for 7 minutes.
Margera was left with a bloody face, a black eye and a missing $500 bracelet. But living to tell this tale?
