A spokesperson for Gail Shea has responded to Morrissey's comments about Canada's seal hunt.
This is clearly just another case of a millionaire celebrity, desperate for a hobby, shamelessly regurgitating misinformation and myths that fringe animal-rights groups have been pushing for years. In the future, I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities.

As is almost a yearly tradition: Morrissey has spoken out against Canada's seal hunt.
The seal hunt in Canada is struggling to make a start this year due to almost no markets, and China especially is refusing to sell Canadian seal meat. Thank you, China! China has stated that "animal rights protests" are the reason why they have dropped Canada's custom. The annual East Coast seal hunt/kill started Monday - against a strong wave of trade and court challenges. Europe continues its ban on seal products. Gail Shea, the federal Fisheries Minister for Canada, says that baby seals are "killed humanely", and explains how the baby seals are shot by high-powered rifles. Is this a death that Gail...

The Manchester Evening News stated that Morrissey "claims he was "touched inappropriately by a teacher at school."' Morrissey has stated via True-to-You that this is false.
Morrissey has never made such a claim. Furthermore, Morrissey does not use the word 'inappropriately' unless it is followed by an explanation of what an action might be inappropriate to. Morrissey is seeking legal advice on this matter.

WENN is reporting that the US version of Morrissey's autobiography has been edited to various degrees, including the editing out of details surrounding his relationship with photographer Jake Walters.
The tome, titled Autobiography, details several anecdotes involving Walters, and Morrissey writes movingly of their two years together, but in the U.S. release, which was published on Tuesday (03Dec13), many details in the original book are missing or edited down.

Morrissey's cover of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" is now up on iTunes. The song was recorded live at the Chelsea Ballroom at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on November 25th, 2011.

Morrissey has released a statement targeting the annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon. And if you want to read about why the the turkey pardon is pretty much America's dumbest tradition, read this article.
Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny!

As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey 'meat' is one of "our nation's top killers", causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.

Peta have launched their 2013 edition of their vegan/vegetarian stamps and Morrissey is one of them.

Morrissey has written a long letter that at least starts with addressing the photos have have been circulating of the American TV presenter, Melissa Bachman, having shot and killed a male lion.
I am not ashamed to admit that newspaper photographs in recent days of American TV presenter Melissa Bachman laughing as she stands over a majestic lion that had been stalked and shot dead by Bachman herself left me tearful. Although I have previously felt enraged by the asininity of U.S. congressman Paul Ryan, and political fluffhead Sarah Palin - both of whom also kill beings for fun, there is something especially lamentable about the Bachman smile of pride as the lion - a symbol of strength,...

Morrissey's autobiography has been unexpectedly canceled last minute.
Although Morrissey's Autobiography was set to be available throughout the UK on September 16th, a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse. No review copies were printed, and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher.
