Joan Jett loves rock and roll, but she hates animal cruelty.
The rock icon and longtime vegetarian is taking on former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher after recent comments he made concerning cruelty to cows. Remembering the summers he spent in County Mayo, Ireland as a child, Gallagher fondly recalled that he would “run around throwing stuff at cows.” He went on to state that he looked forward to passing the dubious tradition down to his sons “so they can throw stuff at cows as well.”
His comments have angered PETA, who argue that Gallagher needs “empathy counseling.”
Regarding Gallagher’s comments, Jett told WENN “This guy is a putz (idiot)! I am embarrassed he is Irish and from (the) same county as my grandparents on my father’s side. Maybe if this bully wants to throw things, he should try throwing something at somebody who can fight back, like me.”
If I were Gallagher, I wouldn’t mistake Jett’s compassionate kindness for weakness. It sounds like she could throw down.
