I love how self-righteous some of you are responding in here. He believes what he believes and is taking a stand and maintaining his own personal integrity. Whether or not I agree with him is irrelevant - it isn't any of my business, and I'm bummed he won't be on national TV, but if it's for something he feels strongly about, I can accept that.
I like his music, but it's silly. I can surround myself with people who think the opposite of what I do, and not feel like I'm going against my beliefs because I'm secure enough in my own thoughts to not make an issue of it, I wouldn't want someone boycotting me for what I believe, so I'm in no place to do it to someone else. This is just pretentious.
i lost respect for him. asking another guest to be kicked off the air because he doesnt believe in what they believe in, is a step backwards.
today is all about equal rights, if you want to respect same-sex marriage, african american presidents, and women fighting overseas, then you have to respect people who eat meat and hunt animals. its a two way street
I'm honestly curious as to how difficult scheduling has to be for Morrissey (or his people I suppose). In my head it is an enormous amount of hoops to jump through just to agree to one appearance. Will there be meat there? Who are the other guests? What are their stances on the meat industry? Who sponsors the show? Will commercials for KFC air during this broadcast?
Not knocking him, just generally fascinated I guess.
