Steve-O Seriously Injures Ear in Stunt Gone Wrong
As one of the most well-known members of infamous MTV programme Jackass, Steve-O has made a name for himself performing shocking stunts.
However, the star’s latest stunt left him with a gruesome injury to his ear.
Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Glover, is currently travelling around the United States on his Steve-O’s Bucket List Tour. After posting a graphic photo of his injured ear to his Instagram, Steve-O commented, “Last night in my quest to get #CauliflowerEar, something weird happened and I ended up needing stitches.”
A “cauliflower ear” is a condition, usually caused by blunt trauma to the ear, which causes a bumpy appearance to the external portion of the ear.
Steve-O revealed that after sustaining the injury, he decided to use glue on it, with his Instagram post stating, “I put a bunch of glue on it… so we could keep filming, then we had another total freak accident and I had to keep piling on more glue to clean it again.”
The star’s Instagram update made no mention of seeking medical help for his injury, concluding, “At this point it’s hard to tell what’s going on with it under all that glue.”
