Bam Margera, star of MTV’s “Jackass,” is calling for a boycott of the fourth installation of the stunt movie.

Magera, 41, has raised concerns about his mental health after posting a since-deleted series of disturbing videos detailing his grievances with the film, slated to come out in September.

Although he’s still listed on the , he claims he was shut out of the production.

“I’m not in ‘Jackass 4,’ and if anybody cares about me don’t go see their movie because I will make mine way f – – king radder if you just Venmo me a dollar,” he says in the first of two videos preserved by .

He alleges in the video that some of his concepts were used for the film. Reps for the show’s director and writer Jeff Tremaine, as well as writer and star Johnny Knoxville, did not respond to The Post’s requests for comment.

“I wrote them so many ideas, and if I’m not in the movie, and they use my ideas, how do you think that that’ll make me feel?” he said about his claim. 

He also says that authorities from Paramount Pictures allegedly forced him to take antidepressants. A rep for Paramount didn’t respond to The Post’s requests for comment.

“‘Jackass’ was everything to me,” he says at the end of the video before beginning to cry, dry heave and then vomit. He later admitted that he drank beer and wine before sharing the claims.

In the second video, he goes into more detail about his emotional pain.  

“If you’re a fan of mine, you would understand the f – – king pain that I’m going through,” he says, panning to his wife, Nikki, who is standing in the doorway, looking upset, then back to himself in rapid succession. “If anybody cares about me at all, then throw me a f – – king bone and send a dollar to this Venmo.”

He goes on to admit that, after becoming extremely bored at home and feeling like he was “living in Groundhog Day,” Nikki found him “on the interweb typing in how to tie a noose,” and the couple subsequently moved. Now, they live in Oceanside, California. “I met new friends that I love,” Margera goes on, but he is still disturbed by his non-inclusion in the upcoming “Jackass” sequel.

At the end of the video, he pleads with fans to “Boycott ‘Jackass.’ ”

Nikki remains quiet throughout, periodically throwing Bam concerned looking faces.

“‘Jackass’ does not care about me, understand that ladies and gentlemen. It’s like, it was like my family, that won’t let me in because they say I’m out there being a jackass on TMZ.

“Dr. Phil, I need your help in a big, big way,” a distressed Margera said in his video post, rocking dark shades and a gold chain. “My family is in shambles. It’s worse than it’s ever been, ever.”
