Morrissey cancels Jimmy Kimmel appearance, calls 'Duck Dynasty' cast 'animal serial killers'
Fox News ^ | February 27, 2013 | Fox News

Posted on 02/27/2013 8:26:28 AM PST by beaversmom

Jimmy Kimmel always has the last laugh.

Morrissey learned that lesson on Tuesday night, after the former front man for The Smiths canceled his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” at the last minute because he learned the cast of “Duck Dynasty” would be guest on the same night.

Never one to back away from controversy, Kimmel addressed the cancellation on his show, thanking the band Churchill filling in for Morrissey on such short notice.

Kimmel read the statement Morrissey issued to explain his refusal to appear on the show.

“[Morrissey] is a vegan and a staunch animal rights activist,” Kimmel explained.

Morrissey stated he could not “morally be on a television program where the cast members of ‘Duck Dynasty’ will also be guests.” He added “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.”

Kimmel said Morrissey gave him an ultimatum, saying the comedian had to choose between him and the cast of the A&E show.

“While I respect his stance on this-- I really do— there’s a very good reason why I didn’t dump the “Duck Dynasty” guys for Morrissey,” Kimmel said on the air. “It’s because they have guns, and Morrissey doesn’t.

And the late-night host didn’t stop there.

“He keeps finding new ways to depress us,” he quipped of the musician.

Anyone who knows anything about Morrissey wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest by this. The Smith’s had a record in the mid 80’s called Meat is Murder (one the of top 5 80’s songs How Soon Is Now? is on it BTW). He’s a known vegan and psychopath and the most depressing songwriter in history... ;-)

I can see how you would consider him psycho,

not only do I have no idea who he is,and that he is a vegan, I don’t care.

No one cares.
lol

He must have a huge sense of self-importance.

When hunting just play a few Smiths songs and the deer will kill themselves. Meat is suicide!

“former front man for The Smiths”

I felt like I grew up in a closet.

Now I am glad I did.

Just WTF were the “Smiths?’

I am guessing used car dealership.

The Robertson guys should take him out and have a snake drop into the boat. Then we’ll see how fast Morrissey (whoever the heck he is) changes his mind.

Still a rockin' song.

But one silver lining to his snub, Denver's Churchill got to play in his place:

“[Morrissey] is a vegan and a staunch animal rights activist,” Kimmel explained."

He's also a staunch fag:

"If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men.”

Morrissey loves animals so much that he has decided to become one. He has morphed himself into a complete Jackass.

When I go down to the grocery store and walk past the produce section, I see people putting those bags of carrots into their buggies. I can hear the carrots screaming in terror, and I don’t want to even think about what those vicious people do to them when they get home. It makes me sad. SAVE THE CARROTS...SAVE THE LETTUCE...BOYCOTT MORRISSEY!!

(Morrissey who?)

http://www.lyricsfreak.com/s/smiths/is+it+really+so+strange+_10217959.html

I left the North
I travelled South
I found a tiny house
And I can’t help the way I feel
Oh yes, you can kick me
And you can punch me
And you can break my face
But you won’t change the way I feel
‘Cause I love you
Oh ...

And is it really so strange ?
Oh, is it really so strange ?
Oh, is it really so, really so strange ?
I say NO, you say YES
(and you will change your mind)

I left the South
I travelled North
I got confused - I killed a horse
I can’t help the way I feel
Oh yes, you can punch me
And you can butt me
And you can break my spine
But you won’t change the way I feel
‘Cause I love you
Oh ...

And is it really so strange ?
Oh, is it really so strange ?
Oh, is it really so, really so strange ?
I say NO, you say YES
(But you will change your mind)

I left the North again
I travelled South again
And I got confused - I killed a nun
I CAN’T HELP THE WAY I FEEL
I CAN’T HELP THE WAY I FEEL
I CAN’T HELP THE WAY I FEEL
(I lost my bag in Newport Pagnell)

Why is the last mile the hardest mile ?
My throat was dry, with the sun in my eyes
And I realised, I realised
I could never
I could never, never, never, go back home again

As a Gen Xer, I grew up with The Smiths and Morrissey’s solo work.

He’s never made a secret of his politics (c.f. his song “Margaret on the Guillotine” for a particularly florid example). Nevertheless, sometimes his music was suitable for listening to when I was in one of those hormone-fuelled teen angst moods, and I’d sit in the basement, brooding and writing dark poetry.

Nevertheless, even then, most of us wave and punk fans used to joke amongst ourselves that every Morrissey album was sold with a razor blade, and the admonition that it’s: “down the block, not across the street”!

I’m so tired of today’s femmy sissy bands with no talent. Where are the Led Zeppelin’s, AC/DC’s, RUSH’s, Ozzie’s, etc??? Frail, soulless female lead singers with metrosexual femmy boy ‘musicians’ playing acoustic guitars, ARGH!!! Where’s the soul? Where’s the passion? Where’s the hard-hitting electric guitarists, bass players and drummers? A few generations of emasculated boys raised by single moms has destroyed music. Oh wait, there’s rap! Still waiting for rap to disappear after what, 30 years? ARGH!!!!

I can agree with you on cRAP (oh my goodness!), but there is SO much new music that I like on the alternative station. Music that has interesting, no rude lyrics. People playing guitars. Melodies. I’ve been reborn.
