He was in the cartoon.

Has it actually ever been addressed in the comics?

I know that Animal Man became a vegetarian.

Well when you can talk to animals it kind of becomes murder if you do eat meat you know. I feel like if you can have a conversation with the animal you're going to eat it may put you off your diet. Thats why I'd like for there to be those creatures that were in the hitchhikers book, they were not only willing to be eaten but they told you which part of them would be tastiest.

You know, in everything I've read of him, I haven't seen it addressed one way or the other.  Anytime I've seen him eating food it's either something that doesn't have meat or is something that could have meat but isn't required (like pizza or burritos)

So in the comics it's never been addressed but I think it's a good choice for him.  I mean, when you turn into a bull everyother day to take down some thug, hamburgers do boarderline on cannibalism.  I remember reading that the Martian Manhunter was a vegetarin for similar reasons.

Then again, I sould be biased as I am a vegetarian.  However, the whole ethics of eating animals in the comic book world seems abit in question.  I mean, the Aqua family talk to sea life, so there is some form of sentients there.  Bwana Beast talks to all animals.  Then we have sentient animals on their own like all the super pets.  And lets not forget Gorilla City.  Just seems a little weird that all these animals at some point have been represented as having a mind set close enough to humans yet no one seems to mind them getting eaten lol.

i like the whole idea of him eating meat, look at it like this animals can communicate in some form or another yet they still eat each other, why is it so looked down upon if beast boy does?

Depends on which aanimal he is transformed into at the time! ....

If he turns into a wolf, don't wolves eat meat? Many of Beast Boy's various forms are in fact, carnivorous. As for the "Teen Titans" show, let's just avoid that.

i think he should. 
 
Now do you think he will even be around after September?

Absolutely he should be.   Rather, BB should be vegan.
 
It gives Beast Boy another level of his personality and, in my opinion, makes him 100 times more likeable.
