Margera revealed that he "was basically pronounced dead on December 8th." Stating that he wasn't aware that he was battling COVID and that his body was shutting down. He claimed that he suffered five seizures, one of which caused him to bite his tongue so hard that it nearly fell off and that drinking the infected blood led to him having pneumonia, as well.

Margera added that he experienced the fifth seizure in the hospital and woke up five days later thinking that he'd only been there for a few hours.

Back in early 2021, Margera was fired from Jackass Forever after breaking a clause in his contract that required him to stay sober during filming. His full chat with Steve-O can be found HERE.
