| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Singer/animal rights activist/vegan Morrissey has cancelled his appearance tonight on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" because the show's lineup also includes the cast of the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty."

Numerous websites are reporting Morrissey would not perform on a show with people whom he allegedly called "animal serial killers."

"Duck Dynasty" follows a Louisiana family who own a duck decoy/duck call business.

In a statement, Morrissey said he "cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of Duck Dynasty will also be guests."

In related news: On his Facebook page, Morrissey, who had cancelled a slew of dates on his current tour (including a stop in Chicago) due to illness, announced that he will resume his North American tour with a performance in San Diego on Weds, February 27 as a part of a 27-city tour with newly added cities.
