Morrissey Won't Be Playing Jimmy Kimmel

Posted by - 05:42 PM on 02/25/13
Morrissey was supposed to play "Jimmy Kimmel Live" tomorrow night. Also appearing on the show: the cast of the A&E duck hunting-based reality show "Duck Dynasty." You know how this is going to end, right? Morrissey says he won't play unless they boot the duck-hunters. Kimmel has replaced Morrissey with Churchill.
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."

Umm, I hardly see why he needs to make a big deal about it.

I can understand if they wanted to use his music on one of their episodes but...performing at the end of a talk show? This just seems intolerant. And kinda sucks for the fans.

Seems kind of silly, but good for him for standing up for what he believes in, I suppose.

Good call. I respect how staunchly he sticks by what he values.

It's not like they just announced these guys today. I'm sure he or at least his agents have been aware for a while. Sucks that he needs to make a big deal of it the night before, I just feel like there's a better way to handle it.
