‘Jackass’ Figure Sentenced to Jail for SeaWorld Protest — and He Lets Everyone Know How He Feels About It

Oct 7, 2015  •  Post A Comment

“Jackass” star Steve-O received a jail sentence for a stunt he pulled in August as a protest against SeaWorld, and he responded publicly to let people know he’s OK with the sentence.

E! Online reports that the reality star, whose real name is Stephen Glover, was sentenced to 30 days in L.A. County Jail. He then posted an Instagram message in which he said, in part: “Considering I’ve become a clean and sober, dog-rescuing vegan, I must say I’m ready to go to jail — not just because it will bring so much attention to the plight of orcas in captivity, but because it’s nice to let people know I haven’t lost my edge. What can I say, I’m a jackass.”

Steve-O’s post also revealed that he has launched a campaign to raise money for at-risk inner-city youth in Los Angeles, with a promotion linked to his upcoming Showtime comedy special, “Steve-O: Guilty as Charged.”

In his post, he added: “My whole crane-climbing, fireworks debacle really turned out to be pretty meaningful in the end, too. I mean, if your goal is to make a statement about captivity, you may as well get yourself locked up!”

  1. Steve-O is a great guy–out on the edge taking chances and doing something to expose the plight of Orcas in that sleazy so-called “entertainment” center called Sleazeworld. Free the Orcas! Now…and let them be in their own habitat rather than the prison called Seaworld.

  2. Inform yourself – whales in no way mistreated at the extremely valuable SeaWorld, regardless of the lies spewed by activists and a certain “documentary” which is as real as “This is Spinal Tap.”

    Don’t take my word OR their word for it; do the research and come to your own conclusions.
