Brandon Cole “Bam” Margera was discharged from hospital on Sunday (December 11) after being in intensive care with pneumonia. Last week it was announced that his condition was getting worse, but now he seems to be doing better.
The television star, best known for the “Jackass” films and the series “Viva La Bam,” which documented him and his family, has been admitted to a San Diego hospital after contracting Covid. Now he’s back out there, sharing the good news on his Instagram account. “I’m out! Thank you to my friends, family and you for the love, support and prayers,” he wrote there, sharing a picture of himself and Johnny Schillereff, founder of skateboard apparel company Element.
Recently, Bam Margera’s family has faced a wave of hatred over misunderstandings surrounding his court-ordered rehab treatment. Margera had been hospitalized there since September 2021, until a lawyer told him he could appeal the verdict and didn’t have to live in the clinic. So the family started the Free Bam movement, but to many it made it seem like Margera was in a similar position to Britney Spears. Under the hashtag #FreeBritney, many fans demanded the termination of their guardianship, which led to the singer in “many of their everyday decisions are determined by others” became. Bam Margera’s family split up Instagram that this is not the case and that they have learned that some aspects of private life do not belong in the public domain.
