Morrissey Cancels Jimmy Kimmel Live TV Appearance In Protest

Morrissey has been forced to pull out of yet another scheduled appearance, with his jaunt to the US increasingly looking to be in tatters. However, it’s not illness that’s forced him to drop out of the Jimmy Kimmel Live! Show, but his principals – something we’ve seen time and time again from Mozza.

The former Smiths front man has released a statement on the site True To You, which points out that he would have been on the same show as the cast of Duck Dynasty – something that he cannot abide by. “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” the statement reads. “Morrissey would be honored to play the show, if Duck Dynasty were removed.” Continuing, the statement quotes Morrissey as saying “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.”

Duck Dynasty, if you weren’t sure, is a reality television show on A&E based around the Robertson family, who’ve managed to make their fortune by making products for duck hunters. As a strict vegetarian and animal rights protestor, you can certainly see why Morrissey wouldn’t be up for sharing a couch with them.
