Steve-O is usually in the press for his crazy stunts but this time around it’s for a good deed. PETA is honouring the prankster for his efforts in promoting animal rights.

In case you didn’t know, Steve-O has been a vegan since 2009 and has also appeared in several campaigns for the organization.

So to congratulate him, Steve-O will be receiving the Peta Activism Award during a special reception in Fort Lauderdale, Florida today.

Ingrid E. Newkirk, Peta’s President, reveals:

"Steve-O may be a comedian, but to animals in trouble, he's a real champ. There's lots to laugh about in life, but animal abuse isn't funny, as Steve-O is quick to point out."

As for the comedian, he adds:

"Being a vegan, caring about animals… all of this compassion in my lifestyle is the reward in and of itself."

Congrats!
