Morrissey Cancels Jimmy Kimmel Appearance over 'Duck Dynasty'

Morrissey Cancels Jimmy Kimmel Appearance over 'Duck Dynasty'
Nice hair.

I don't know about you, but A&E's Duck Dynasty is one of my favorite shows. It combines heartwarming family relationships with cornpone humor and beautiful Louisiana scenery in a package that's easy to watch after a hard day's work. It chronicles the misadventures of the duck call-manufacturing Robertson family, which is behind the Duck Commander and Buck Commander lines. A new season of the show premieres tonight.

British singer and animal rights activist Morrissey — one of those one-named entertainers like Beyonce, Cher or Madonna, but at least with no accent marks or odd punctuation — refused to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with the Quack Pack, stating the following:

"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."


Well, I presume our furry creature-loving Limey friend thought his ultimatum would lead to the lovable Louisianans being dropped from the Kimmel show, but they were not. The band Churchill substituted for Morrissey.


Not only that, but Kimmel ridiculed the move and the Duck Dynasty crew whipped up an hilarious parody roll touting carrot calls.

Animal rights types seem particularly fond of issuing ultimatums. Morrissey apparently got all meat removed from the menu — and even got the in-house McDonald's to shut down — at the Staples Center in Los Angeles when he performed there recently. So apparently, if you want a tasty taco or Big Mac while enjoying his musical stylings, he doesn't want your business. I intend to accommodate him on that.

My recommendation? Support freedom of speech by watching Duck Dynasty tonight.
