I remember the London Forum in 1999, and one night Morrissey said (twice, and in this order): "the slave trade, the holocaust, the meat industry", whilst drawing an imaginary (and fairly large) triangle with his right hand.
as a lifelong Morrissey fan, I will always defend him. still, it can be misinterpreted and downright shocking. I am black myself, and my dad (also black) was horrified to be likened to a chicken - or goose, ox, whatever.
similarly, I am sure a lot of Gays/Romas/Jews would take offence.
too clever by half maybe, Morrissey?
I respect the fact that he feels so strongly about animals, but surely there is room for misrepresentation...?
