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 cant 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 theres a very good reason why I didnt dump the Duck Dynasty guys for Morrissey, Kimmel said on the air. Its because they have guns, and Morrissey doesnt.
And the late-night host didnt stop there.
He keeps finding new ways to depress us, he quipped of the musician.

An animal serial killer (or is it cereal).
What a dufus
Ozzy Fudd is a wabbit swayer.
Uncle Si fired back “I thought Morrisey was the lead singer for the Doors?”
Carrot calls and broccoli traps......LOL!
Not The Who. Morrissey. ;)
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... ;-)
Ha ha just watched that, I love these guys.
LOL! I've got "How Soon is Now" on my FR page. :) You know, sometimes you just wanna slit your wrists, but you listen to Morrissey and you get over it.
Heh! My son is home sick and we just watched the parody. Our sides are hurting from laughing.
” I cant take the risk of being on a show alongside people who, in effect, amount to animal serial killers.
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.
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!
Morrisey - voice like Bryan Ferry with 1/2 the IQ.........
Get over yourself and get back with the Smiths.
See, depressing nut Morrissey brought happiness to a sick boy and his mom. There’s always sunshine behind the clouds. :)
“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.
“When hunting just play a few Smiths songs and the deer will kill themselves.”
HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! That made my morning. Thank you.
