Morrissey cancels on Kimmel over 'Duck Dynasty'

Morrissey was scheduled to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday, but the singer has since canceled.

His rep told CNN in a statement that while Morrissey is "thankful for being invited to perform on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,'" he can't "morally be on a television program where the cast members of 'Duck Dynasty' will also be guests."

For those who haven't discovered the A&E reality show yet, "Duck Dynasty" follows the Robertsons, a Louisiana bayou family who've "made a fortune on duck calls," as the network describes. The reality series returns for its third season on Wednesday.

"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," Morrissey said in the statement. "If Jimmy cannot dump 'Duck Dynasty' then we must step away."

The singer's rep adds that Morrissey would be "honored to play the show" if the "Duck Dynasty" cast was removed from the lineup. As of now, it looks like "Duck Dynasty" is still set to appear, along with Terrence Howard and musical guest Churchill.

Morrissey is also expected to play Los Angeles' Staples Center on March 1 in what will be the venue's first meat-free event.

    Duck Dynasty is far more entertaining and educational than that pansy treehugger Morrissey anyways. These people hunt and kill for a living, it's not as if they're doing it for the fun of it. The show is educational to a point, even if there is more humor to it.

    Did Morrissey asked if Jimmy eats meat? does the Camera crew eat meat? How about the audience, everyone's a vegan, right? and what about the producers of the JKL show, anyone had a chicken salad or burger today? network Exec's airing the show, do they eat meat? The at-home viewers? ...... A rational adult with strong convictions of his/her beliefs would try to educate – or share with others on why they live they way they do, and why he "thinks" it's better for the planet. But instead he comes off as pompous and arrogant by degrading the choices of others.

    They say any publicity is good publicity. I can't say this shines a positive light on Morrisey. He comes across as intolerant; preachy, uninformed and without any shred of humour in him.

    So I'm assuming that it means that he never eats meat. Nor that he has any family members or friends(that he will tolerate being around) who eat meat. I also take it to mean he's never been poor enough or hungry enough to be willing to hunt or eat something that was hunted. If this is the case, then he should consider himself fortunate and get off his high horse. Let him go a few days with nothing to eat, and we'll see if he likes the taste of duck. If I had been a fan, I wouldn't be now. I think Jimmy Kimmel should ban him from his show for being stupid and arrogant.

    He should be supporting the Duck Dynasty crew. Hunters kill those ducks, which live in the wild as nature intended, and subsequently eat them.

    • Falcon505

      FYI: Morrissey is the former lead singer of British Alternative Rock band The Smiths. Their arguably most recognizable song, "How Soon is Now?" was the theme song to the TV show Charmed. He has since launched a successful solo career. Though his decision makes zero business sense to me, I applaud him for standing by his principles. I would rather have a morally-conscious individual forgo personal wealth and fame than take the path of least resistance.

      I agree with Falcon. People can't take away your self-respect if you don't give it to them. He's standing up for what he believes in, and so what? let him. If you don't even know him, what do you care that he's not going on Kimmel? He's a brilliant musician and animal rights activist, and you people act like he did something horribly wrong. Sign of the times, and it's very sad.

      I always thought Panic was one of the Smiths best known, even if people didn't know where "hang the dj" came from. But I am a bit old for charmed. Interesting how all those dark little emo kids didn't come about for another generation. Suppose that is best. Kids now seem far to unstable to listen to tracks like Asleep on repeat without taking their lives.

    Duck Dynasty is definitely staged, but the one-liners and (some) of the antics are not, and they are hilarious. Might be the funniest thing on TV right now. I would prefer real TV sitcoms, but nowadays you take what you can get.

    As for vegan Morrissey, he's acting too self-important. I eat Vegan 50% of the time bu don't have a vendetta. He needs to get over it. Men are naturally meat eaters. And he just made Duck Dynasty look good and Jimmy Kimmel look great.

    This guy is waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy to self-important. His music is not good enough to overcome his complete lack of personality. I hope none of the talk shows will have him on. If he is so determined to be in a meat-free atmosphere, like when he is nude, then he should just have his concerts in a field, promote by web only, and talk to promoters by phone only. Stop putting the rest of the world out just because you hate people. Another tip, if you like animals more than people, then get your da*ned money from them and leave us alone. What a preck!

It makes me smile because it is so refreshing seeing a loving family who take care of each other, have fun together, love each other, and get such enjoyment from the simple things in life. The show is a juxtaposition of their wealth & their family values, and how one hasn't ruined the other. I think we'd all be a lot happier & healthier if we took some hints from the Robertsons.

    Dating myself, but I was a fan of The Smiths "back in the day"- Morrissey was their lead singer. He has always been an alternative type and never one to shy away for standing up for his beliefs, no matter how unpopular they may seem. Good for him, do what you feel is right, however don't impose your beliefs on others. Nice that you have new music to promote, but if you are selling out from your alternative past to do Jimmy Kimmel, then you have to expect to be lumped in with the likes of Duck Dynasty...or worse! Kudos to Kimmel for not giving into this diva like behavior. Anyone with half a brain would rationalize that DD would draw WAY morre viewers than Morrissey

    Vegetarianism and Veganism are morally wrong. They cause overpopulation of animals, and a strain on the ecosystem.

    Anyone who lives in Pennsylvania can tell you that we're losing hundreds of thousands of trees every year because of the overpopulation of deer, which eat the bark off of trees to survive when they are starving. Valley Forge park is a wasteland of dead trees from the deer. Yet, the PGC still refuses to issue more deer permits during hunting season.

    This is going on all across the country as militant vegetarians are taking over local governments and imposing their will on everyone. They're destroying the ecosystem out of their own arrogance.

    Ever think about the filth and in humane ways animals are killed you buy in grocery store are? I am not big meat eater because of that. At least the Robertson's know when their meat comes from and they kill humanely and prepare themselves and also give to people in need. That steak in fancy restaurants pieces of meat glued to look good. They know how fresh, and what they are eating. Their show helps this woman going through colon cancer treatments forget her pain....btw processed fake food we eat is killing us. I remember growing up in NC farms eating everything fresh. No over weight problems or constant health issues like now. Eating off land what you grow and catch is more healthier. One DD show Jade said buying meat from grocery store scares him....it should.

    I don't understand this whole vegan/vegetarian lifestyle fad. Nothing against it, if that's your personal choice. But how is because someone kills for food a thing worth canceling a performance for? Humans have always depended on animals for food, probably always will to an extent.

    This pretentious, obnoxious, worthless, terrible singer needs to go away. He has singlehandedly caused a spike in wussiness. He was emo before emo was emo (and that is NOT a good thing). Morrisey cannot sing, and thinks he is some sort of deity that people worship. I have no interest in seeing ANY reality shows, but I would watch 24 hours marathons of "HOney Boo Boo" and these duck people before listening to five minutes of his awful singing. Hearing him talk would likely make me want to shoot myself. This guy makes Robert Smith look as manly as Chuck NOrris. Actually...that is a good idea. Put Morrisey on the same night as Chuck. Problem solved. Roundhouse kick to oblivion, and he whines no more.

    100,000 hipsters just slit their wrists. Way to go, Morris.

    I have no problem with someone deciding that they're not going to eat animals. If that's your choice, good for you. Where I have a problem is people getting all holier-than-thou about it and trying to coerce behavior. If you don't want to honor your obligations, fine, but don't try to get someone else knocked off of the show because you disagree with what they do.

      I agree. Especially with him probably being a turd knocker.

      Allejandro- you should not describe your brain knocking around your skull like that.
      It's not good for your self esteem to flatulate out of your ears.

      Everyone knows only gay people who don't have cable watch Kimmel.
      These are the same people that comment on CNN.
      Mea culpa

      Morrissey got into a cat fight with Bowie too.
      Time to get your meds checked over. You need MORE!

      Vegetarians are supposed to be passive and meek, eh?
      Pleasing oneself with a vacuum cleaner always calms me down- except when I turn it on.

    Who does this guy think he is? Why would he think that other guests on the show would effect HIS reputation? I for one have never heard of this guy, and now I am glad I haven't!

    Get overyourself and go grab a burger, maybe that will de-flate your ego.

      I think he may be a gay singer from England. He seems to try singing in a real deep voice, mostly English of Scottish ballads. A really horrible singer.

    What a drama queen.
    I guarantee you Kimmel fans are more interested in the Duck Dynasty crew than a washed up never was.
    Morri-who?

    what a whiny baby. it has nothing to do with sticking to one's principles...more like being unable to tolerate anyone who is the least bit different from oneself. no loss tho...this guy makes the most unlistenable god-awful music in the history of mankind.

    Way to go Moz. Stick to your principles. Sad to see that you're not performing, but behind you 100%
