The reason has something to do with drug use, voices in his head and karmic justice!
What can we say, he's a complicated person.
But all it took was one video about karma and spirituality to turn him all around.
"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."
So after watching the vid, he began to reevaluate his life and tried to find ways to live better.
"I began to look for new ways to cut cruelty out of my lifestyle. I stopped wearing leather, eating fish and eggs, and once I bought my first carton of almond milk, I had become a vegan. 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."
We're so glad that he decided to become a better person for himself, to learn to love himself and all those around him.
Humans and animals alike!
Way to go, Steve-O!!
