I was actually a bit shocked to discover that former Jackass and Wild Boys star Steve-O has over 9 million fans on Facebook. When I first caught wind last night that Steve-O was live streaming himself climb a crane in downtown L.A. with a large inflatable orca whale replica I assumed it was just a publicity stunt. I assumed this because Steve-O’s a bit of a relic from the MTV of yesteryear. Well, as it turns out I’m just an asshole, and everyone knows that to ‘assume just makes an ass out of u and me‘. Steve-O was actually up that crane last night for a pretty damn good reason, and when he was consequently arrested by a whole gaggle of LAPD’s finest it definitely became a story worth sharing, because any awareness that can be raised about SeaWorld’s crookedness is a story worth sharing.
As Steve-O climbed up the crane in the City of Angels he had the camera on to record everything for everyone.
It started with an announcement of the stunt:
It progressed to police everywhere:
I guess it was around this time that he accepted he was going to jail?
So, who’s bailing him out of jail?
