Singer Morrissey is never one to keep his feelings to himself and is often having a rant about one thing or another. His latest attack is directed at American President Barack Obama, who Morrissey has slammed for backing the torture and murder of millions of turkeys for Thanksgiving.
In an open letter on True to You, Morrissey wrote, "Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit."
He added, "And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny! Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51 per cent of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House 'turkey pardon' is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry."
For those of you unfamiliar with the Turkey Pardon, it is where Barack Obama is presented with a turkey, which he then gives a pardon, saving it from slaughter.
What will you be doing for Thanksgiving?
