Morrissey: Not Keen On Meat Or Common-Sense
I quite like some of Morrissey’s music. I also quite like meat—tasty, tasty meat—but I have no real problem with the fact that Morrissey isn’t keen on meat or even that Morrissey’s not too keen on people who eat meat. Despite that I’ve heard him say a few things I found annoying and stupid in the past, his views on vegitarianism don’t make him a twat.
What about stating that the recent massacre in Norway pales before the wrongs of the fast-food industry, though? Does that make him a twat?
The internet’s full of this, so it may not be new to you but, before performing Meat Is Murder in Warsaw the other night, Morrissey told the crowd: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown with 97* dead. Though, that’s nothing compared to what happens in McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Shit every day.”
Now, I suspect that most people, whatever their views on the benefits of a vegitarian or vegan diet, will consider that a pretty objectionable thing to say.
Morrissey, you twat.
*I think he was mistaken about the number—not really the worst thing about this quote, though.
