Wowzer. Morrissey is no stranger for a flair of the dramatic or to say dramatic things that get lots of attention.
This time the singer spoke out about animal rights and animal welfare in China, a subject that is terribly close to his heart.
“Did you see the thing on the news about their treatment of animals and animal welfare? Absolutely horrific. You can’t help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies,” he told the Guardian Weekend magazine.
He later went on to say in a statement, “If anyone has seen the horrific and unwatchable footage of the Chinese cat and dog trade – animals skinned alive – then they could not possibly argue in favour of China as a caring nation. There are no animal protection laws in China and this results in the worst animal abuse and cruelty on the planet. It is indefensible.”
Here are some photos of him performing at Coachella last year!
