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.

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."

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."

What do you expect from a "jacka$$"? Maybe he should check out the events he signs up for a little better! He didn't have to eat the meat and could've supported the event and talked about the plant based diet! What a loser!

This is such a self serving, attention grabbing ploy. Rather than doing the right thing and raising money for a good cause, he made it about his own agenda. This is immature and disrespectful to those suffering from diabetes.

wELL,he's a jackass, what do you expect. If he's so conscientious about what goes into his body, then WTF is the deal with him and drugs and how he abuses his body.

FURTHERMORE, if he REALLY wanted to demonstrate his higher of level and moral conscientiousness and the plight of diabetics everywhere then he should have donated a SIGNIFICANT sum of money [I don't mean $1,000 I could do that] for the event to augment his stupidity.

That may be to some extent, but living a vegan life doesn't mean crap. Had a relative that ate healthy all the time, didn't stop them from getting cancer.

Perhaps SteveO needs to get a serious GRIPO! What a total vapid idiot he proves to be again and again. Disgusting behavior. He needs to read up on his diabetes diatribes. Diabetes does not equal NO MEAT. He is a JACKASS... and acted like worse at a charity event.. SICKENING

being a diabetic the proper diet is not plant based u need to sufficient amount of protein in your diet to balance your blood sugar to keep better control and prevent lows and highs......proper diet is 20% grain 30-40% fibrous carbohydrates and the rest in meat and dairy. He is just another celebrity who thinks they actually know something when they really do not. He made his money off of being a jackass and he continues to keep his legacy.

The event was for Type 1 diabetes (that is where u have no beta-islet cells in your pancreas and do not produce insulin) u idiot if u eat nothing but plant based items with little or no effect on your blood sugar or you eat fruits to make up for carbohydrates and protein and take insulin your going to the hospital in 1 day maybe 2. You people should actually know wtf your talking about before you post about sh*t.

If only Diabetes was cured so easily.. Go get properly informed:

Type 2 Diabetes MAY be controlled by diet, usually by loosing the weight which may have triggered it. It is not Protein rich foods (incl Meat here) but rather Carb/sugars which are problematic with any Diabetes. but may require additional insulin administered.

Type 1 Diabetes has NO cure it means the pancreas (oops where is spell check when you needs it) stops producing insulin, There is NO diet which will change this and the only cure that exists is maintenance through administering Insulin By injection, Pill or pump and a controlled diet (to avoid dangerous blood sugar levels either too high or too low).
