Morrissey sure doesn’t hold back. The rock singer recently tore into Kate Middleton, as well as Princes Harry and William, for their treatment of animals.
No one likes it when rock stars get preachy, and he does kind of sound like the annoying vegetarian relative at Thanksgiving dinner. However, Morrissey still makes some pretty salient points, in his latest rant against the British monarchy. He slams them for being anachronistic, shallow, and even cruel to animals.
“William shoots deer, Kate’s favorite food is the shockingly cruel foie gras, Harry shoots water buffalo… they are the most dysfunctional, unpleasant and arrogant people on the planet,” Morrissey said.
Of course, the British royals could care less what Morrissey thinks of them. What with Harry’s peccadilloes, and Middleton’s nude photo scandal, they already have enough problems to worry about.
But, this is why people love Morrissey. So what if everyone else in the world is enamored of Kate Middleton? That won’t stop him from speaking his mind. And, by the way, the practice of force-feeding birds to fatten them up is truly grotesque.
“The monarchy is foremost a business, and it’s important to them that the British public continue to finance the excessive luxurious lifestyles of the now quite enormous, wasteful and useless ‘royal’ family,” he added.
