Morrissey Cancels Talk Show Appearance in Protest of 'Duck Dynasty'
If you tuned in to Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to watch the scheduled Morrissey performance, you may have been disappointed. The rock icon and outspoken vegan canceled his appearance on the late night talk show in protest, after learning that the crew from the reality show Duck Dynasty would also be guests.

The former Smiths frontman went as far as calling the Robertsons “animal serial killers”.
The Duck Dynasty crew chose to take the high road though. Phil Robertson said:

As The Hollywood Reporter pointed out, it’s not the first time Morrissey has made high-profile statements about his veganism. The Staples Center released a statement that denied the singer’s recent claim that the venue would not be serving meat at his upcoming performance scheduled in March.
