Morrissey is known for speaking out for animals. He drew controversy when he compared the tragic killing of 97 people in Norway to KFC and McDonald’s, and he was named PETA’s UK Person of the Year in 2011.

Now, the singer has joined the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection in their campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics in the European Union. According to PR Newswire, he has joined the ‘No Cruel Cosmetics’ campaign and said, “Say no to injecting, force-feeding or forcing animals to inhale substances for a new lipstick or shampoo. Please join me in signing the BUAV No Cruel Cosmetics petition to stop the sale of new animal tested cosmetics in the EU.”

The petition has also been signed by other celebs including Paul McCartney and Sienna Miller. There are bans on animal testing for cosmetics in the UK and EU, however the products can still be tested elsewhere and imported. A ban on those imports is supposed to start in 2013, however it may be delayed. BUAV is calling for the ban to be upheld. Over 140,000 people have already signed the petition.

“We are delighted that Morrissey is helping the BUAV save animals from suffering and death in tests for cosmetics products sold in the EU. Please join him to help us end this cruelty,” said Michelle Thew, BUAV Chief Executive.
