Morrissey Cancels Jimmy Kimmel Live Appearance Tomorrow
Morrissey has canceled a scheduled appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live over the booking of the stars of Duck Dynasty for the same show. Billboard reports that Morrissey has pulled out of the appearance after learning that the stars of the A&E reality show about the Robertsons, who make duck hunting product, will be there.
Morrissey issued the following statement about his cancellation:
“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.
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.”
