• Morrissey cancels Jimmy Kimmel appearance 2/26 over scheduled guest Duck Dynasty

    Posted on the official Morrissey Facebook page:

    "Morrissey is thankful for being invited to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow, February 26. However, he cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of Duck Dynasty will also be guests. Morrissey would be honored to play the show, if Duck Dynasty were removed."


    UPDATE 9:00 PM PT:

    MORRIZSEY posted the link to the press statement on true-to-you.net now, with the additional text:

    Morrissey stated, "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."

    UPDATE 5:05PM PT:

    The Jimmy Kimmel Live page is listing "Churchill" as the musical guest on the 26th along with guests Terrence Howard and the Duck Dynasty family.



    Show info from the Duck Dynasty page on A&E:

    A&E's most-watched series, Duck Dynasty, is back for a third season. The show features a Louisiana bayou family living the American dream as they operate a thriving business while staying true to their family values and lifestyle.

    ...Some of what's to come this season on Duck Dynasty: Willie tries to lose weight for his high school reunion, Jase and Willie take Missy and Korie deer hunting, the guys rough it in the woods for opening day of duck season, and Si looks for a canine companion.




    UPDATE Feb. 26, 6:30PM PT:

    DavidMich posts:

    Duck Dynasty responded on Larry King by saying, "Who is Morrissey?" They were actually very nice and civil about it:

      I absolutely don't see why anyone's surprised here. He's just rescheduled a load of dates and needs to sell some more tickets. Whenever he's got something to sell he says or does something to keep his name in the news. It's ALWAYS been like that.

      He can't win with you can he?

      Surely by your logic it would have made more sense to go on Jimmy Kimmel and say something outrageous - that would have been a much bigger platform and he would have made a much bigger splash than just by cancelling.

      He isn't struggling for ticket sales at the moment is he - he seems to be selling out every show?

      He is surley actually demaging his ticket sales by making this stand, firstly by losing the opportunity to promote the shows on TV (which was probably the point of the appearance) and secondly by further aleinating certain people in his audience who don't agree with this stance and who have already faced cancellations before.

      Its quite a leap to intrprete this TV show cancellation as a publicity stunt but nevermind, I bet you'd have had some eqaully illuminating things to say had he actually gone on the show alongside "Duck Dynasty"

      Ok then why does'nt he stand up for his principles and stand up these duck geezers then ? Who wrote the line "And if a fight broke out here tonight, you'd be the first away because your that type" ?

      Thats right he has'nt even shown up to run away in the first place because he's scared, he can give it verbal in an interview but when it comes face to face and toe to toe he will just wish the ground would open up and take him down.
      Morrissey has been asked countless times to appear on a politics show in the UK called 'question time', its a live audience debate with a guest panel of five guests and a chairman, now Morrissey has always had outspoken views about politics and public figures and throwing them pelters so you would think he would love the chance for some publicity on a show like that but no, surprise surprise years of refusal ? (Remember he got Andy Rourke to sack guitarist after Johnny left when trying to carry on as the Smiths)

      Anyway I count six in Morrissey's line up against four in these Duck-nuts ? So why is he on the run where is his "Northern Pride" ? This is a man who is selling Americans t-shirts which say on the front "Salford School of Hard Knocks" ffs !
      He's been banging on about this Staples centre being meat free and it turns out its gonna be anything but so if he really is a man of principles as you say above then he should go on the Jimmy Kimmel show and spark these ducks out either with his witty intelligence or his fists and then tell Staples to cut the meat or he's not showing up.

      Yet so far he,s demanding the Ducks are off the show ! Pathetic ! A man of no substance only GREED ha !!!!!

      Your gonna need someone on your side and here I am my arse. O Manchester nothing to answer for. Thankyou to the brave ones eh ?

      These are a great way to build up one's vocab. But did you know there was a real duck in the Smiths?

      I emailed the Whiting and received a response from the ticket office. Morrissey will perform (hopefully) on April 8th and Ticketmaster will reflect this as well. Tickets on sale 3-1-13 at 10am. Hopefully the third time will be the charm.

      Morrissey could've gone on "Kimmel" and busted out "Break Up The Family" as a shot across the bow of their dumbass family. I've only seen about 4 minutes of that idiotic show and I think all of the characters are from the same family. Plus they all look like 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes in varying stages of his life which is bizarre. I respect Morrissey for deciding not to do the show and sticking with his principles. Good for him!
