Morrissey - Morrissey Brands Prince William 'Thick' In Furious Hunting Rant

Singer Morrissey has angrily branded British royal Prince William a "thickwit" after it emerged the heir to the throne went on a deer and boar hunting trip hours before launching a wildlife protection campaign.

The Duke of Cambridge reportedly joined his brother Prince Harry in a hunting trip in Spain on Saturday (08Feb14) and the following day (09Feb14) he was seen in a broadcast with his father Charles, Prince of Wales.

The pair called for an end to the illegal hunting of endangered species, but former The Smiths frontman Morrissey has hit out at the announcement, blaming legal hunts for decimating wildlife and branding the royal family an "embarrassment" to the U.K.

Morrissey, who has been a vocal advocate of animal rights during his career, writes in a statement, "One day prior to giving a public plea on behalf of animal welfare (!), Prince William is to be found in Spain (with Prince Harry) shooting and killing as many deer and boar as they possibly can! Although William's speech... will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize that animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map - all in the name of sport and slaughter...

"Just why William kills innocent and defenseless deer does not matter - the fact is, he does it, and we must go on and on asking why any form of violence is acceptable to the British establishment... the British (Royal) Family never fails to be a colossal embarrassment to the United Kingdom...

"The rationalists amongst us - who are never allowed to speak, are intelligent enough to realize that endangered species are dying out only because of people like William and Harry, and, for this we can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces."
