Steve-O shared why he chose veganism in an essay for The Huffington Post. He revealed he made the decision after watching a video on YouTube.
"That video made me consider that I am responsible for the choices I make, that by choosing to eat meat, I had been participating in terrible cruelty, and that I was collecting negative karma, which I would have to answer for," Steve-O writes.
He began by forgoing foods like eggs and fish, and stopped wearing leather. He then went out and bought a carton of almond milk. "I never really thought of it as a sacrifice I was making, rather, it was more like a game I was playing to see how good I could feel about myself."
