Morrissey refuses to appear on Kimmel with ‘animal serial killers’ from ‘Duck Dynasty’

Morrissey, circa 2009

Hours after announcing the rescheduling and expansion of his trouble-plagued U.S. tour, Morrissey backed out of tomorrow’s night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” — which was to have re-launched the tour — saying he could not appear on the same program as the “animal serial killers” from the A&E reality series “Duck Dynasty.”

In a statement released via True To You, Moz said he’d still play the late-night show if the offending animal slayers are removed as guests. That apparently has not happened, as the Kimmel show’s website lists Tuesday night’s guests as actor Terrence Howard, the “Duck Dynasty family” and musical guest Churchill.

Morrissey’s tour is slated to resume Wednesday night in San Diego (see full dates).

The full statement:

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. Morrissey would be honored to play the show, if Duck Dynasty were removed.

Morrissey stated, “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.”






  1. Wow… This may shock you sir, but we all have to share the world with people whose views differ from our own. Morrissey continues to piss on his American fans.

  2. Dear Morrissey,

    Don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

    Love, JK.
    Seriously. Fine, you’ve got your animal-rights beliefs. I do too. I can’t imagine the nerve of expecting to force them on everyone else, too. No meat at the tour venues, too? C’mon Moz, not all your fans are vegetarians, and it’s not like you’re eating at the hot dog stand with them.

    Given the attitude he’s displaying lately, I can only assume that as a meat-eater, Morrissey probably doesn’t want to associate with me any more than he does with any other non-veggies. Fine by me. He doesn’t need my money anyway.

  3. When is he going to get the memo that he is not in fact, God?

  4. While on tour does he stay in hotels that have a kitchen? I’m sure they serve meat to other guests?

  5. Folks, are you forgetting who you’re talking about? This is his M.O. for the past 30-ish years! It’s not like he just started to do this. C’mon…

  6. Any takers on the bet that he’ll actually show up for the Staples show? I doubt McDonalds is going to back down. When two clowns battle, the bigger one wins.

  7. I’m sure they wouldnt want to be on the same show as a pleb like Morrissey either…

    I actually think Morrissey did the honorable thing that is in line with his beliefs on something that is very important to him. He is taking the risk of being criticized by both fans and non fans of his music by cancelling the Kimmel performance. He is also passing up an opportunity to perform to a national audience that could expose his music to new fans. I give Morrissey props for being true to himself.

  9. Carnivores are a simple fact of mother nature – shark, dolphin, lion, tiger, bear, man.

    Morrissey has a rich history of going against nature.
