Morrissey cancels on Kimmel – Lengendary rocker Morrissey has always stuck to his morals so it’s no surprise he has pulled out of his Jimmy Kimmel Live gig because of someone else appearing on the show.
Morrissey cancels on Kimmel
The outspoken ‘Meat is Murder’ poet and voice of a generation takes a strong stance on his beliefs and is a strict vegan. He was slated to appear on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live until he heard the other guests would be Duck Dynasty, they make equipment for hunting ducks and he has described them as ‘animal mass murderers’ in a statement.
Below you can find a copy of the press statement as published on True-to-you.net.
25 February 2013
Morrissey is thankful for being invited to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow, February 26. However, he cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of Duck Dynasty will also be guests. Morrissey would be honored to play the show, if Duck Dynasty were removed.
Morrissey stated, “As far as my reputation is concerned, I can’t take the risk of being on a show alongside people who, in effect, amount to animal serial killers. If Jimmy cannot dump Duck Dynasty then we must step away.”
Jimmel Kimmel Live have said they are trying to rearrange the appearance so fans may still get to see a performance by the legend.
What do you think. Is he overreacting? Should he stick hard to his morals like this?
