In 2011, Channel 4 in the UK was promoting Gordon Ramsay's Christmas Cookalong Live.
To get people amped up over the meat-centric cooking show, they played The Smiths' Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want.
The problem was… they didn't get permission!
After a lawsuit, Morrissey got a near $15,000 payout.
What did he do with all that ca$h money??
He has donated the entire sum to PETA, to help in their campaign against foie gras. Foie gras is a cruel food item, made of duck or goose liver after the animal has been force fed to fatten it up.
Gordon Ramsay has had his fair share of foie gras related problems as we previously mentioned.
"Ramsay may very well stick his head in his microwave when he hears that the money I received from Channel 4 because one of my songs used to promote his Christmas show is being donated to PETA to fight foie gras. Foie gras is so cruelly produced that he'd be against it if he had an ethical bone in his body."
So the money from a man who serves foie gras is now going to help fight that same cruel food item!
That seems like poetic justice to us!
Way to go, Morrissey!!
