Catching Steve-O with his pants down probably wouldn't come as a shock to most of his fans, but it's what he's dropping them for this time that might pleasantly surprise some of them! The **** star shed not only his pants but every stitch of clothing he was wearing to star in not one but two naked anti-fur PSAs for PETA.
With the taglines "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" and "Ink, Not Mink," Steve-O shows off his tattoos and takes a stand against animal abuse. He encourages fans to "[b]e comfortable in your own skin and let animals keep theirs."
Steve-O is famous for all the dangerous and painful stunts he puts himself through, but he knows that animals killed for their fur don't have a choice. Foxes, raccoons, and even dogs and cats are strangled, beaten, and electrocutedâ€”and many of them are skinned aliveâ€”for the fur industry.
Steve-O put it perfectly in his interview with PETA: "Abuse yourself all you want," he says, "just leave animals out of it. Don't wear fur."
