Vegan 'Jackass' Steve-O Storms Out of Charity Event

Don’t piss off a vegan! Or, at least that’s what the American Diabetes Association figured out when they served a meat-based menu and Jackass star Steve-O stormed out of their charity event.

Apparently the stuntman, and hardcore vegan, thought the event was to help promote the idea that a plant-based diet can lower your risk of diabetes, so you can imagine his bewilderment when he arrived at the celebrity go kart tournament and found meat heavy catering.

He stormed out before the race could even begin, and he later told a rep for the Children’s Hospital organization, “I came here because I thought this was about promoting a plant-based diet as diabetes prevention and they’re serving meat there… so I’m outta here.” He then added, “It’s kind of an outrage to me… it’s stupid.”

This isn’t the first time Steve-O has taken a stand for what he believes in, as he starred in an anti-fur PETA campaign, protested a zoo and its treatment of “Lucy” the elephant, and has been an active advocate for breast cancer awareness.

Alec Baldwin wants turkey-less Thanksgiving, ignores other animals

No less turkeys would be saved if Baldwin and Farm Sanctuary asked people to go vegan.


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
