WATCH: ‘Jackass’ Star Steve-O Climbs Crane to Protest SeaWorld

Jackass star Steve-O climbed a crane in Hollywood to protest SeaWorld with an inflatable killer whale balloon that read “SeaWorld Sucks.” Once at the top, he also set off firecrackers. He broadcast the stunt live on his Facebook page after teasing it on his Facebook and Instagram pages.

Fox News reports:

Los Angeles police said 41-year-old Stephen Glover drew dozens of emergency responders to a construction site where he climbed a crane towering at least 100 feet.

Ling said because the first responders were unsure whether Glover needed to be rescued, several ambulances and fire trucks were sent to the scene. Firefighters prepared a cushion in case of a fall.

Once he came down, Steve-O was arrested. SeaWorld has not responded.

SeaWorld has had financial difficulty ever since the movie Blackfish was released, exposing the company’s use of trained killer whales, or orcas, for profit.

The Mirror reports:

The company saw its net income drop 84 percent in the second-quarter, ending June, because of problems with attendance and what it’s CEO is referring to as ‘brand challenges’.
