Singer Morrissey says no to Kimmel, 'Duck Dynasty'
By LYNN ELBER , AP Television Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP)  The TV series "Duck Dynasty" is coming between Morrissey and Jimmy Kimmel.

The singer and animal rights activist says he canceled his appearance Tuesday on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" because "Duck Dynasty" cast members will be on the talk show.

Morrissey says he can't perform on a show with what he called people who "amount to animal serial killers."

A&E's "Duck Dynasty" reality show follows a Louisiana family with a business selling duck calls and decoys.

A&E did not immediately respond to requests for comments from it and the Robertson family.

A person familiar with the Kimmel show's plans confirmed that Morrissey was to appear. The person lacked authority to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The person says Morrissey's performance will be rescheduled.

ABC says the Churchill band will perform Tuesday on Kimmel's show, but declined comment on the switch.

Never heard of this Morrissey guy, but I'm sick & tired of "artist's" holier than thou attitude.  Get over yourself Morrissey.

Good for Morrissey!  Standing up for something he believes in.  Whether you agree with his opinions or not, he has major backbone!  Regardless, animals are not on Earth for us to eat, wear, or for our entertainment.
