Morrissey has branded the actions of Anders Breivik, the man responsible for last week’s twin attacks in Norway as “nothing” when compared to McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken.
The singer allegedly made the comments during a gig in Warsaw on Sunday (July 24), before playing The Smiths song ‘Meat Is Murder’. Morrissey apparently said:
We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Shit every day.
The Mirror reports that last night a spokesperson for the singer said: “Morrissey has decided not to comment any further as he believes his statement speaks for itself.”
In tribute to Morrissey, here is Robert Smith and The Cure. They rock.
