Animal rights activist Morrissey made headlines when he announced he was cancelling his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” because the “Duck Dynasty” guys were also guests.
But Kimmel and the Robertson family put together a funny response in video form, after being referred to as “animal serial killers”. Check it out!
Morrissey explained in a press release that he was not comfortable appearing on the show because the other guests that evening included a family that makes duck calls used for hunting in their show “Duck Dynasty.
But Jimmy Kimmel had the last laugh:
Morrissey apparently didn’t find the bit funny and later released another statement slamming Kimmel.
Morrissey stated, “I was disappointed with last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Show wherein our smiling host managed to ridicule depression (70 per cent of Americans have experienced depression according to the National Institute of Mental Health). He then found time to ridicule healthy eating (the obesity epidemic in the U.S. costs $147 billion per year in medical expenditure), and he also ridiculed the notion that animals should be entitled to the possession of their own lives.
“Furthermore, he found time to jokingly promote gun-ownership – hugely amusing for the parents at Sandy Hook (Elementary School), no doubt. He also promoted his special guests Duck Dynasty, who kill beings for fun. None of the above issues are, of course, as important as Jimmy Kimmel himself, who has finally revealed his show to have an overwhelming loss of meaning. Tune in and relive the intellectual fog of the 1950s.”
What do you guys think? We know Morrissey feels strongly about his cause, but can he not take a joke?
