Morrissey Half-Cocked

David Cassuto

From the Wish He Hadn’t Said It Desk:

Morrissey calls the Chinese a “subspecies” because of the widespread mistreatment of animals that goes on in China.  It’s hard to know where to begin with this kind of racist, unproductive, polarizing rant.  All I can say is that it would be great if we (read “he”) could could use his celebrity to call attention to the horrific brutality committed against animals without resorting to ugly, xenophobic (and patently silly) rhetoric.
