Morrissey is serious when he sings "Meat is Murder." Earlier this week, the former lead singer of the Smiths made headlines when he demanded that Los Angeles' Staples Center go all-vegetarian for the occasion of his March 1 appearance (Staples says there will be meat options; Morrissey says there will not: "Reports that the Staples Center will not be 100% vegetarian on March 1st are playfully untrue. Contractually, all McDonalds vendors shall be closed down, and the only thing burning shall be my heart").

Now the singer has doubled down, canceling a planned appearance on tonight's Jimmy Kimmel Live because cast members from the Louisiana reality show Duck Dynasty also will be on Kimmel:

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 comment from it and the Robertson family.

The appearance has been rescheduled, and surely Kimmel will ask the Robertsons about it tonight. In the meantime, read Lauren LaBorde's 2012 interview with Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson.
