According to his not-yet-released memoir, “Autobiography,” outspoken vegan singer, Morrissey, once went on a date with a meat eater, unexpectedly. In an excerpt from the book, Moz says:
“As his food order arrives I stare intently at what appears to be a sloppy dish of dog food on his plate. … I therefore automatically stand up and walk out of the restaurant. Suddenly you come to a certain situation and you are unable to live with it, and the only protest you can make on behalf of the butchered animal is to depart the scene.”
The man who ordered the Dog Food Special, Jake Owen Walters, then shows up at casa de Moz.
“He obviously understood my sudden exit, and he had been curious enough to follow me home. He steps inside and he stays for two years,” recounts Morrissey.
Did Walters go vegan after that? I guess we’ll have to wait for the book to release to find out! I imagine there will be other vegan-related tales between the covers of Moz’s memoir.
