<div class="quote-block">"<b>Jackass</b>" star <a href="http://www.tmz.com/person/steve-o/" target="_blank"><b>Steve-O</b></a> WALKED OUT of a charity event benefiting the <b>American Diabetes Association</b> this weekend because they served meat for lunch ... claiming, "It's like serving alcohol at an AA meeting."<br><br>
Steve-O was set to compete in the Celebrity Go Kart Tournament in Gardena, California this weekend -- but once he caught wind of the menu, he BOLTED.<br><br>
On his way out, Steve O expressed his outrage with a woman named Helen from Children's Hospital -- saying, "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."<br><br>
After asking a few kids if they wanted to take his place driving his go-kart in the event ... Steve-O added, "It's kind of an outrage to me ... it's stupid."</div>

He's crazy some times but when it comes to things like these, I really like him. Good on him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

Nice.<br>
Not sure when he became vegan but I think he was already veggie for a couple of years.</div>

I think it was after Johnny Knoxville made him go to rehab <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I have to confess I've only ever seen two minutes or so of Jackass, but he was on "Germany's Next Topmodel" and even though he was crazy, he seemed kind of cool. This sounds awesome too! Good on him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

He shouldn't expect the ADA to be promoting vegan diets. Those ultra-mainstream health charities are really little more than corporations that constantly partner with, and promote, the food industry.

I've never heard of this guy or whatever he's associated with, but good for him anyway. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

I wondered how someone who cares about animals can be on Jackass. I was glad to read from Wikipedia that apparently this guy at least has some reservations about the animal stunts on the show.

It's nice to see that even some jackasses have morals <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Never heard of him or the show or movie or whatever that is, but that's good for him that he's so strongly supporting veg*nism!</div>

You've never heard of Jackass!? Where have you been? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I've never been his biggest fan, but he's totally earned a few respect points from me.

There's been only short periods when I had access to seeing that show, and unless my brain is fried, I seem to remember Animals being extremely disrespected on that show. I mean those ****ing clowns provoking and riding on the backs of Pigs, etc, etc, etc.<br><br>
(I mean "clown" in a different way there, don't take it personal)<br><br>
I mean "great" anytime someone speaks out/stands up against meat, but it just drives me nuts how 99% of Humans are so freakin Jekyll and Hyde.

Was that before or after he went vegan? Because I do remember some pretty crappy shows prior to him going vegan. But I haven't seen any jackass episodes since he went vegan.

I haven't seen it for a few years.<br><br>
I had no idea he was vegan. Hits home a little, cause I've been less than kind to Animals at some points of my stupid life, long ago.

From what I've seen lately the show has a lot less animals in it, thankfully. It seems to be in the process of getting more humane..<br><br>
Steve-o is getting mad respect from me for his veg-friendly choices though! Seems like it'd be hard to pitch kindness to animals to his group of friends.

I remember him snorting a worm up his nose but I think that was around the time he was also regularly snorting ..well other "things" up his nose.<br><br>
Are there new episodes of the show? I didn't even know it was still going.
