Morrissey NOT invited to Nobel Artist celebration after KFC comments

From Morrissey portad från fredsprismöte - Aftonbladet.

Google translation - Oslo's mayor, Conservative Party politician Fabian Stang, has invited all the artists who are attending the celebration of the Nobel Peace Prize to a conversation, rather - all except Morrissey. The reason that Morrissey gets ported can be found in a statement that the British pop icon felled during a concert shortly after the terrorist attacks on Utøya and in Oslo, reports NTB.

Morrissey is known as a militant vegan and in between snack, he compared the terrorist attacks with the production of fast food.

- We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown. But that's nothing compared to what happens in McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken every day, said the singer.

In an interview with the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet explains Fabian Stang their unwillingness to invite Morrissey:

- The seriousness of comparing our nation's tragedy to flipping burgers makes it difficult for me to be accommodating, even though his job is to sing, not talk.

"His job is to sing, not talk." f***ing fascist!
 
It struck me being a bit strange that Morrissey would be performing so shortly after his comments. Until TTY confirm we are not better off for knowing.

The other artists should boycott.

This is so wrong. It would be understandable if Morrissey wasn't invited due to his prior comments, but since he was he should be treated the same as any other artist. Morrissey is there to pay tribute to the peace prize winner and get some exposure the same as anyone else.

I realize the mayor didn't pick Morrissey but he should respect the decision of the Nobel committee.

Is the mayor trying to taunt Morrissey into canceling?!?

Yes. Nothing works like the threat of exclusion. Fabian doesn't know that Morrissey is the Master of being excluded from stuff, this is old hat to him. :lbf:

This is the least elegant approach but at the end of the day, people are thinking about KFC. Actually they're displacing their gripeyness by talking about Morrissey, but he's taking one for the "Let's discuss factory farming.' team. So really...he's winning.

Justice Part 1 Complete.
Now lets get him thrown off the bill completely, Morrissey has nothing to do with peace, you only need to look back at his well documented comments to realise this.

NORWAY PLEASE KICK THIS DELUDED PROVOCATIVE IDIOT OFF THE BILL, HE HAS NOTHING IN COMMON WITH PEACE AT ALL.

I am actually somewhat curious and I mean this sincerely--did anyone in Norway actually care about Morrissey before the media made a big deal about this? I am not questioning the sincerity of people's outrage I am just wondering was this previously a big issue in Norway? Like is Morrissey a big deal there and therefore comments he makes would get major media attention? Or did somebody bring this up after he was selected to play at the concert and thus the controversy began?
