Noted weird stuff eater Steve-O is screaming from the hilltops (Huffington Post) that he’s vegan and proud. He first stopped eating meat as a way to “cut cruelty out of [his] life,” which made him feel so awesome about himself, that he went on to stop wearing leather, eating fish, and even eggs. When he bought his first carton of almond milk, it was all over.
Almost as soon as I went vegan, people started telling me that my skin looked great, and that I appeared younger, slimmer, and healthier. I’m convinced that of all the changes I’ve made to my lifestyle, it’s the adoption of a vegan diet that has been best for me — physically, mentally, and certainly spiritually. It’s benefited every area of my life.
We can’t help but wonder if, perhaps, cessation of shit cocktails (really, he ingests poo), cutting back on goldfish, and and going on a no-rat diet could’ve helped him feel all brand new instead. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t have to eliminate every animal product in order to feel on top of the world, just the ones that you’re really not supposed to eat. Also, not having rusty staples applied to the scrotum probably does wonders for ones health. Everything in moderation, ya know?
The saddest part of all of this is that he’s screaming from said hilltops in support of “What Came Before,” a film he narrated about animal cruelty. That’s not sad per se, but the fact that we are totally incapable of taking him seriously right from the get-go (See: “Hi, I’m Steve-O. Pigs like Nikki are some of the smartest animals on earth.”) really can’t help the cause. Sorry, Farm Sanctuary, a lovely organization promoting compassion for farm animals. You shouldn’t have chosen a farm animal as your celebrity spokesperson.
