Jimmy Kimmel: Morrissey 'Keeps Finding New Ways to Depress Us'
Talk show host pokes fun at singer after canceled appearance

After Morrissey canceled his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night over sharing the show with the stars of the A&E reality series Duck Dynasty, Kimmel poked fun at the former Smiths singer with a special skit. "There a very good reason why I didn't dump the Duck Dynasty guys for Morrissey, and it's because they have guns," said Kimmel. "He keeps finding new ways to depress us." Kimmel then jumped into the skit, which featured a new Duck Dynasty especially for vegans.

Morrissey backed out of his musical guest appearance on Tuesday over moral concerns with his fellow guests, saying, "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." Morrissey has also said his March 1st show at Los Angeles' Staples Center will be entirely meat-free, though the arena itself says they are only adding "a variety of vegetarian food items" to their already existing dining options.
