The former Smiths front man Morrissey has provoked a storm of protest following comments in which the singer allegedly compared the Norwegian massacre in which 76 people died to the slaughter of animals for fast-food restaurant chains.
Just before performing his single Meat is Murder, he reportedly told the crowd: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 [sic] dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried shit every day.”
It is not the first time Morrissey’s outspoken views on animal rights issues have caused offence. In an interview in Guardian Weekend in September he called the Chinese people a “sub-species” over their treatment of animals and attitude toward animal welfare.– Guardian.co.uk
For a guy swearing by vegetarianism, he sure puts his foot in his mouth a lot.
I wonder what a Paleodieter would say.
