The former Smiths frontman — an avid animal rights activist — refused to appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last-minute on Feb. 26 when he learned the duck-hunting enthusiast stars of the reality TV show ‘Duck Dynasty’ were guests.

It’s not uncommon for musical guests to be the target of late night talk show fodder — especially when said guests cancel their appearance last-minute — but when former Smiths frontman Morissey refused to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Feb. 26, the gloves came off and Jimmy Kimmel was outspokenly angry and annoyed.

The English singer had cancelled his appearance late the night before he was supposed to perform after he learned the cast of the A&E reality TV show Duck Dynasty, who had made their fortune selling duck hunting equipment in Louisiana, were also going to be guests on the talk show on the same night.

Morrissey is a vegan and avid animal rights activist, and said in a statement that he cancelled because he couldn’t appear with people he considered “animal serial killers.”

As a response to the last-minute flake out, Jimmy took time out of his nightly monologue to poke fun at the English rocker.

“There’s a very good reason why I didn’t dump ‘Duck Dynasty,’” Jimmy said on his show on Feb. 26, the night Morrissey was supposed to perform. “It’s because they have guns, and Morrissey doesn’t.”

He also featured a sketch that showed Duck Dynasty lookalikes using vegan hunting equipment to hunt for carrots.

As a consolation, Jimmy had local Denver rock group Churchill perform in Morrissey’s place.

If you are looking for a container to transport goods like pipes, risers, metal bars, tools, cables, wires etc., there can’t be a better idea than cargo baskets. Do the avid game enthusiasts share the ball and contain newcomers Do they ignore them Some cultures are naturally a whole lot much more willing to share and have much far more faith in individuals. The main Waikiki strip, along Kalakaua Aenue, is home to worldfamous boutiques and luxury shops, including outlets for Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Simply select the section in Halloween costumes. How far is too far when handling your finances. Since I read the manual and I am aware of this fact, this has not been a problem. You do not want the aggravation at the airport of repacking your luggage or checking in a bag because it has an merchandise that is not permitted in your carry on while you are just starting off out on your vacation or company trip.You can lend your books to your friends and family for up to two weeks, if the book has that feature.

Once again, the “tolerant” left shows its true colors. Conform or be boycotted. Who cares? THIS from a man who says if there were more gay men there would be less wars. Wow. Genius. Nothing new.
