Steve-O: The Situation Dissed Me on the Red Carpet
Jackass' Steve-O says he recently had an unpleasant red carpet situation with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.
At the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in September, he said he approached the Jersey Shore star, 28, to say he's a huge fan. "I go up to him, and I'm like, ‘Yeah dude, I’m so psyched to meet you man ... you are who I came here to see,'" he recently said during a radio interview. "He's like, yeah, whatever ... He totally 'cool-guyed' me. I got big-timed by 'The Situation.'"
But while chatting Monday on SIRIUS XM's The Morning Mash Up, The Situation said he didn't mean to be a diva.
"You know, I did meet Steve-O and I did hear he wanted to meet me," he explained. "And I also was excited, but he met me on the red carpet when there's interviews going on; there are hundreds of people screaming. I mean, I didn't 'cool guy' him, so to speak, but I politely said hello. Pretty much what happened was, I was in the middle of doing an Extra interview, or whatever, and Steve-O comes right into the interview and was like 'Yo, what up, Situation?'"
"I'm a fan of his too, but I was in the middle of an interview," he went on. "But, at the same time, I politely said to him: 'What up, Steve-O? What up, dog? I’m a big fan of yours too.' Simple, plain and that was it. I moved on, on the red carpet. I wasn't trying to disrespect anybody."
