Steve-O Ditches Meat

Vegan star and stuntman leaves diabetes charity fundraiser over meat.

Stuntman Steve-O, best known for his grimace-inducing antics in the Jackass TV show and movies, supports using a plant-based diet to prevent diabetes. At a recent fundraiser for diabetes prevention, Steve-O was slated to race go-karts, but discovered that the menu included meat. He told TMZ that feeding meat to diabetics was like bringing alcohol to a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous, and expressed outrage at the hypocrisy of serving meat at an event to promote diabetes prevention. Steve-O went vegan after battling addiction issues, and credits the diet with turning his health around and making him a more compassionate person.
