Contrary to earlier reports that Morrissey’s March concert at the Staples Center would be completely meatless, it seems the entertainment venue will have meat options for fans that are not vegetarian.

According to Contact Music, Staples Center officials released a statement disputing Morrissey’s statement that his concert will only provide veg options.

The statement reads, “As we have done in the past, we are happy to create a menu with a greater variety of vegetarian items for our guests who prefer these types of options. We respect Morrissey’s lifestyle and his concern for the wishes of so many of his fans and are happy that we are able to honor his requests in this manner.

“As Staples Center has previously coordinated on behalf of artists who have played the building, including Sir Paul MCCartney, all backstage catering will be 100 per cent meatless throughout the evening.”

Reading between the lines, only backstage dishes will be vegetarian, but meat options will be available for fans who do not want to snack on a plant-based menu.

On Tuesday, Morrissey’s team released a statement saying that the venue would close its McDonald’s outlets, along with providing non-animal items.

“I don’t look upon it as a victory for me, but a victory for the animals,” Morrissey said in the press release.

Hmm . . . I wonder how Morrissey feels about that Staples Center statement.
