Fans Are Accusing Steve-O Of Being Rude During $65 Meet And Greets

Although Steve-O comes across as one of the nicer guys in showbiz, a fan has accused him of being rude during a $65 meet and greet. 

The Jackass star has been busy in recent weeks with his Bucket List Tour, in which he transforms stunts that were on his bucket list into a stand-up comedy show. 

On top of audience ticket prices for the various dates, fans can pay extra to enjoy a meet and greet with Steve-O

But while this might sound like a dream come true for his supporters, one has taken to Reddit to claim the star was anything but welcoming.

User JoshTee123 said he took his wife and eight-year-old son along to one of his shows, paying $130 for two of them to meet the comedian after. 

Describing the experience, the Redditor wrote: “I got meet n greet tickets, and figured it would be similar to other meet n greets I've been to in the past where you sorta bulls**t with the guy and maybe get an autograph or two.

“Instead, people were being ushered through the line pretty quickly, and it essentially amounted to 10-20 seconds of interaction.”

They said this short interaction played out as follows: “Me: ‘Hey, you wouldn't happen to have a permanent marker, would you?’ Steve: (grumpy) ‘No.’ My wife: ‘We have an 8 year-old that says he's your youngest fan.’ Steve: ‘I doubt it.’”

As for the rest of the show, the OP explained: “I love the dude and have been a huge fan since I was a kid, but after seeing him in person… I can see how he'd be a pretty big d**k when he wants to be.

“For instance, he got pretty mad when anyone in the audience even SLIGHTLY stepped out of line. One out-of-place ‘wooo!’ and he was giving that person the death stare.

“I can't say I fully blame him, and eliminating that sort of thing probably helped the quality of the show, but it made me a little paranoid about making any sort of noise or disruption whatsoever.”

Since it was uploaded yesterday (22 June), the post has received hundreds of comments, with some people sharing similar experiences. 

That includes this person who said they met Steve-O back in 2016, writing: “The feeling I left with was that he was a d**k.

“Like, I get the line of people is long and you need to get through everyone in a timely manner but damn. We spent good money to see his stand up comedy.

“When he went to get the selfie with my wife and I he was kind of rude and pushy. He was like ‘come on, hurry up and get this done’ sort of thing. When I asked if he would sign some merch I had bought he said he didn't have the time to.”

Others, however, defended the Jackass icon and suggested he might just have been having an off day.

“It hurts me reading this story because I’ve met Steve-O a few times and he’s always been dope as f**k,” said one commenter. 

“He even stopped recording, turned around and gave me a hug because I yelled out that I was his second biggest fan (inside joke) but granted this was on Melrose Ave in Hollywood so very different setting.”

UNILAD has contacted representatives for Steve-O for a comment.
