No Horses Die When Morrissey’s in Town

Published by PETA.

Organizers of the Lokerse Feesten music festival in Belgium have assured their headlining act, PETA pal Morrissey, that in his honor, the festival will serve only vegetarian fare on the day of his performance. What, did you expect anything less from the man who did for vegetarian diets what Bret Michaels did for bandanas?

Instead of burgers and horse-meat sausages (yes, they eat horses in Belgium), organizers said festival food stands will offer “an array of healthy vegetarian dishes.”

Perhaps after Morrissey performs “Meat Is Murder,” they’ll decide to keep it that way.
