I’ve only seen Duck Dynasty a few times but I know it involves dudes from Monroe, LA will long ZZ Top-style beards.I’m not sure if their fellow Monrovian and frequent FD commenter, Mass, is proud of them but Morrissey clearly is not:

The TV series “Duck Dynasty” is coming between Morrissey and Jimmy Kimmel.

The singer and animal rights activist says he canceled his appearance Tuesday on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” because “Duck Dynasty” cast members will be on the talk show.

Morrissey says he can’t perform on a show with what he called people who “amount to animal serial killers.”

A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” reality show follows a Louisiana family with a business selling duck calls and decoys.

A&E did not immediately respond to requests for comment from it and the Robertson family.

A person familiar with the Kimmel show’s plans confirmed that
Morrissey was to appear. The person lacked authority to discuss the
matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The person says Morrissey’s performance will be rescheduled.

ABC says the Churchill band will perform Tuesday on Kimmel’s show but declined comment on the switch.

Morrissey is not known for his sense of humor but he is famous for the tune below so I’ll let the humorlessness slide. He may be pompous but he *is* principled:

Hmm, I wonder if his estranged ex-bandmate Johnny Marr will chime in.Probably not, he’s too busy slagging off on Prime Minister David (Posh Boy) Cameron.

One thought on “Morrissey ducks Duck Dynasty

  1. Eh, Morrissey is being consistent with his views, which is fine. He’s always been pretty full of himself, so he comes off like a drama queen whenever he announces anything. I’ve got three words for him: “Lighten up, Francis.”
    I don’t hunt, but I don’t condemn those who do. The thought of hunting bores me.
    I don’t think the Robertson gang qualifies as “serial killers,” in that there are strict state and federal limits on the number of ducks and deer one person kills. They are hunters and businessmen. Some people in the world enjoy hunting, for whatever reasons.
    The teevee show is pretty fun, corny and harmless, so the locals here are proud. Rednecks love redneck shit. It’s one of the few reality shows where people aren’t mean and nasty to each other, which is nice. It’s fully scripted and hoakey family entertainment; they get a little “Jesus-y” here and there, but they don’t preach at you. Otherwise it’s just the boys grab-assing full-time with their wise-cracking women keeping the boys in their places, when needeed. Pretty harmless.
    They’re really locals, so something one day will likely pop up of one of them saying something dumbshit or racist or insensitive. They seem pretty careful of their images, though. They’re raking in a shitload of money.
    Do you boycott CBS because they run car comercials and automobile exhaust pollutes the air and increases global warming? Are the poor slobs behind the counters at McDonalds and Wendys abetting their serial cow-killer masters? Are the Duck Dynasty guys slaughtering more animals than Col. Sanders?
