Morrissey Says Bears Have Earned It Already, Baby

Published by PETA.

Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe has earned kudos from the Mozfather himself for an opinion piece in the UK’s Times that blasted the killing of Canadian bears for the Queen’s Guards’ hats.



In a letter that ran in yesterday’s Times, Morrissey wrote, “I welcome Ann Widdecombe’s views on the depravity of bear-baiting in order to serve the vanities of the British Army Guards. … [T]here is no sanity in making life difficult on purpose for the Canadian brown bear, especially for Guards’ hats that look absurd in the first place, and which can easily be replaced by faux versions (thanks to the visionary Stella McCartney) with no death involved.”

Morrissey has made clear in no uncertain terms that he wants the Guards to switch to faux fur right away. Please, please, please help him get what he wants.
