Not every moment is the right one to bring up the horrors of factory farming. Sadly, no one told Morrissey that before he decided to compare the tragedy in Norway to the business practices of McDonald’s and KFC.
Morrissey 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.”
As proven by the comments over on the Guardian website, that tactic wasn’t the best way to get others to be sympathetic to the animal cause. Generally, dismissing the pain and suffering of people who have just been through a heinous terrorist attack in order to bring up a whole separate issue isn’t going to win you many friends. Yes, it’s true that KFC and McDonalds abuse animals by the millions for their menus, but there are better ways to bring up the issue than to tack it on to a totally unrelated atrocity.
What do you think? Did he cross the line?
