Morrissey Still Despises the Royal Family, in Case You’ve Forgotten
In case you've forgotten just how much Morrissey hates the royal family, he's just penned another letter dripping with seething distaste for the privileged clan.
True to You (an online zine dedicated to all things Morrissey) recently posted a 275-word screed against Prince William and his relatives penned by the easily irritated singer (which he signed "MORRISSEY -- 9 February 2014, France"). What got Morrissey all wound up this time? William's hypocritical call for the end of poaching of animals in Africa.
All well and good, right? Morrissey, a dedicated and militant vegetarian, is all for this kinda stuff, no? Turns out, mere hours before he recorded an impassioned video in support of wild rhinos and lions and whatever else roams Africa, William was in Spain . . . hunting those very same animals whose lives he pleads for in the video. Well, maybe not the exact same animals, but you get the point.
Morrissey, being Morrissey and all that, immediately put his pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard (we're really not sure what he uses, but we wouldn't be at all surprised if Morrissey still writes the old-fashioned way), and tore into William and his family.
You can read the whole thing right here (but if you just want to skip to the highlight, scroll down for our favorite lines):
One day prior to giving a public plea on behalf of animal welfare (!), Prince William is to be found in Spain (with Prince Harry) shooting and killing as many deer and boar as they possibly can! Although William's speech (no doubt written by his publicity aides at Clarence House) will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize that animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map - all in the name of sport and slaughter. Whenever you shoot an animal in the head the outcome is usually the same: death. Just why William kills innocent and defenseless deer does not matter – the fact is, he does it, and we must go on and on asking why any form of violence is acceptable to the British establishment. It is easy for privileged people to assume jealousy to be the reason why anyone would wish to condemn them, but the British Boil Family never fails to be a colossal embarrassment to the United Kingdom. The Spanish trip is more than likely unwillinglyfunded by the British taxpayer, and we know very well that the British press is duty-bound to always defend and cleanse the bad behavior of the Boil Family - no matter how abysmal and hypocritical their actions. But the rationalists amongst us - who are never allowed to speak, are intelligent enough to realize that endangered species are dying out only because of people like William and Harry, and, for this we can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces.
Let's take a look at that final line one more time: "We can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces." Also, he calls William a "thickwit." Viva hate!
