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."

I'm calling bull**** on this! I've been diabetic for 12 years. In NO diabetic diet does it say that you shouldn't or can't eat meat. He wasn't having a good time so he made up a wild excuse. What a fool!

Epic. Fail.

So sick of these NAZI VEGAN'S/VEGETARIANS!

No, it's NOT like serving alcohol at AA!

This is coming from a guy who made his career abusing animals!
Have people forgotten Jackass, they used animals as comedic props or as Pink would say abused them!

She's baaaack    

On the other hand, what Einstein decided that Jackass Steve-O could add anything of educational interest to a organization about childhood diabetes? He dropped out of college after one year. Even the really stupid ones go for two. He'a a stunt performer, and not a good one. It seems that our guy Steve couldn't care less about children suffering from a truly ugly disease, because after all it's all about him. Right Steve?

@ Joe,
Eating veggies for 30 days does not cure diabetes. Stop spreading your stupidity around.

If people aren't supposed to eat animals, then why are they made out of meat?

Heh... he-he-he...

Seriously though folks. Those who aren't smart enough to include meat protein in their diet should ponder the fact that the human race wouldn't be here today without it.

Good for him!! For all you idiots who can't follow the story.. Steve-o didn't walk out because people with diabetes can't eat meat.. it's because he was led to the event under the assumption THAT THIS PARTICULAR EVENT WAS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT A PLANT BASED DIET for people with diabetes.. and THAT WAS GOING TO BE THE THEME OF THE EVENT. Nowhere does it talk about people with diabetes can't eat meat! PAY ATTENTION MORONS!!!

P.S. It's the charity's fault for even agreeing to allow such a jackass to appear in the first place. What were they thinking?

What a slimeball letting the kids down like that. You people saying vegetarianism cures Type 1 diabetes are have no idea what type 1 is. Type 1 is not caused by diet at all. There are plenty of vegetarians with type 1. Meat has NO effect on blood sugar levels whatsover. I was a vegan for 12 years and my beautiful is type 1. Type 1's will DIE without insulin in a few days. The amount of ignorance here is enough to make me want to puke my guts out. Its just so stupid I don't even know where to start. I feel really sorry for these kids that he let down, but he's obviously a piece of dirty human trash and I would not let my son near him. Good riddance.

"The kids would loved to have seen you" what a shame. YOu can't cure or prevent type 1 diabetes with a plant based diet. I really don't think the kids were missing a really great role model anyway.

type 1 diabetes which usually occurs in children is an auto immune disease. Type 1 and type 2 are very different diseases. Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured (yet) It cannot be cured with lifestyle change. Type 2 can be changed with life style change.........what a JACKASS!!

He's right.

I don't care what your thoughts about veganism and vegetarianism are - because he's right. A plant based diet will dramatically cut your chances of developing diabetes.

Don't like it? Too bad. He's right.
