We’ve all had a night out so massive, that even retelling it to your mates down the pub brings back a little hangover burp.
It sounds like, unsurprisingly, ex-Jackass star Steve-O has had his fair share off hangovers, and it appears that one of them was from a pretty wild night out with ex-boxer Mike Tyson.
Speaking to GQ Magazine, Steve – who is now a tee total vegan – told the tale of when he locked himself in the bathroom with the boxer and spent a solid three hours snorting lines of coke, whilst having “deep conversations about race in America.” It sounds… intense.
He said that, “at that time in my life, I would develop Tourette’s syndrome if I was f*cked up enough, just blurting out inappropriate sh*t.” That’s not tourette’s Steve-O, that’s just the effects of consuming Class A drugs.
Anyway, apparently, he started the conversation with:
“You know, Mike, I don’t have a racist bone in my body, but I like to consider myself a n****r. I’ll never forget, he said, ‘You ask me, the definition of that word is anybody who uses it.’ And I was like, ‘Damn! Iron Mike, deep as f*ck.”
The pair met again shortly after when they were both being treated in the same psychiatric ward, but I wouldn’t have been surprised, by the quality of the above conversation, if they’d have ended up in A & E together – Mike with a sore hand, Steve – O – with a sore face.
Steve-O also opened up about the darker side of his drug habit:
“I was scraping up blood and cocaine and I f*cking snorted it. I was snorting up dried blood. That’s probably the lowest point I can recall. And I can’t imagine trying much harder to contract AIDS. And thankfully, I didn’t.”
Snorting up dried blood sounds about as much fun as trying your hardest to contract AIDS.
Stay safe, kids.
