There wasn't any turkey on Morrissey’s Thanksgiving table this year!
Actually, there won’t be any meat at all since he’s a vegan. Nor will there be a Thanksgiving table EVER, since Morrissey is English.
And he certainly wouldn’t celebrate the traditional day of thanks even if he was an American because according to him, Thanksgiving should be called "Thankskilling"!
Yikes… Way to suck the fun outta this holiday!
The often outspoken musician is now taking aim at the custom of giving two turkeys a presidential pardon before Thanksgiving. He even went so far as to call out President Obama as a turkey torturer!
What the what?!? Are we waterboarding turkeys or something?
Ch-ch-check out Morrisesy’s angry open letter. He writes:
"Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny!
As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey 'meat' is one of "our nation's top killers", causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.
Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House 'turkey pardon' is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry.
And President Obama laughs."
Well, we certainly don’t believe in torturing animals that are then eaten by consumers. But, we’ve gotta say, singling out President Obama doesn’t seem fair. After all, he SAVED (kinda) two turkeys from this horrible slaughter that you speak of, Mr. Morrissey!
Also, he’s a pretty happy-go-lucky guy but we have it on good authority that he has never once laughed at a turkey’s expense!
Whatever food you presented on your table yesterday, we hope everyone had a happy, healthy Thanksgiving!
Here's to three more days off!
Gobble, gobble, gobble!!!
