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."

You should check out his fb fan page. He blocks everyone who wants to have a debate with him about his comments. He said to a friend of mine who's child has type1 diabetes that eating meat is only making it worse. Apparently he got a medical license online or something, he seems to have forgotten what the pancreas is & how it works. The idiot really should do his research before flapping away about something he's got no clue about. All the idiots who support this should go do some research as well.

To Constantine and others, I don't know how much clearer it can be that type I and type II Diabetes are 2 completely different things. Yes, a sensible diet can actually cure type II but *It will not cure type I Diabetes * wow, you keep saying to educate yourselves yet you're talking about something you have absolutely no clue about. Ironic isn't it ?

Apparently people here think that eating only rabbit food somehow makes you grow new healthy organs. DO YOUR RESEARCH, stop telling everyone else to do theirs. Go research which organs do what.. go research TYPE 1 diabetes or the PANCREAS educate yourselves about your bodies you ignorant uneducated fools!

"Diabetes is a lifestyle drivin dis-ease, which is worsened by dead animal flesh"

Are you kidding?! Do you even know what a pancreas is or how it works? Did you know it produces insulin? Probably not seeing as how you actually think eating plants will cure diabetes. This crack pot actually things eating plants will cure TYPE ONE diabetes, this was a benefit for TYPE ONE diabetes, not type 2. You're born with Type 1 and no matter what nonsense you post, there is NO CURE. Definitely not plants, which can actually make it worse.

I was pretty sure this guy was declared legally retarded, now I'm positive. Now don't get all huffy there's a difference between handicapped and retarded any handicapped person would tell you that this dude isn't handicapped he's just retarded.

All you people who agree are just as ignorant as he is. Do you even know what organs are in your bodies? Do you even know how they work? Why in the world would you take advice from a well known alcoholic and druggie who does outrageous things to his body on a daily basis? He tortures animals (he's got it on videos) and mutilates his own body for ****s and giggles. Wonder how many packs of smokes he inhales in one day...

Plain and simple he went to a TYPE ONE diabetes charity without 1. doing his research 2. READING what he was attending and then he has the nerve to spout off some medical crap like he has a license! I don't think so. For those telling us who are going though or know someone going through type 1 diabetes to do our "research" or to watch your youtube videos or read you links.. how about you do your research about TYPE ONE diabetes and your PANCREAS

Who ever thinks a plant based diet can prevent or cure diabetes in children is a complete Jack ASS! Diabetes in Children isn't even caused by any sort of lack of diet/exercise. It can't be fixed that way either. There is NO CURE! Anyone who say's any different needs to ask themselves seriously how much they actually know about the disease besides the misinformation past on from idiot to idiot on the general media. It is hurtful to people and their loved ones who are living and have died from diabetes when you do this. JACK ASSES!

There are lots of vegetarian diabetics. It's the carbs that cause the problem, not the protein.

Mieke, sit yo azz down and shut the hell up! Vegan apparently is synonymous with ill-informed, sanctimonious people who are fast to condemn the eating habits of others to make themselves feel superior.

Stop the madness and stop trying to sell BS to a bunch of people who aren't buying. By the way, what a sad, pathetic poster boy you have in Steve-O.

A plant based diet does not mean ALL PLANTS. It means your diet is centered around plants. Fruits & veges making up MOST of your dinner plate, surrounded by whole grains and a protein. Vegetarians are PROVEN to have lower risk of diabetes, cancer, stroke, heart attack, etc. Just look at the USDA and FDA guidelines. It is right there. It also says that people should enjoy a diet LOW in saturated fats. Saturated fats are found mainly in animal products, with the exception of some oils. It is pretty straight forward.
Another thing, people automatically assume that vegetarians do not get protein because they do not consume meat. Beans, tofu, nuts, seeds, and yes, vegetables have high amounts of protein. Minus the cholesterol and saturated fats.

Steve-o has a good point, although I am not sure walking out of a charity event was the best idea.

Regardless of his feelings about serving meat he should have stayed to support the kids and the foundation. A real man keeps his word and commitments not leaving because the menu offended him, thats really stupid excuse.

Man, majority of TMZ readers are stupid... he never said anything about diabetes being caused by meat; he left because he was offended nobody took the time to find out he was a vegan.

Funny thing: I bet the kids understood his problem knowing his alcohol recovery. He doesn't want to be around "enablers" at this point in his life. He can't deal with that right now. Knowing that there's nothing there for you to eat is like being enabled to eat meat.
