Morrissey/TMZ Beef Continues

I love this stuff. In case you missed it, TMZ posted an article the other day suggesting that a) Morrissey was seen eating at an STK steakhouse in Los Angeles, and b) vegetarians who eat in steakhouses are hypocrites. Both of these statements have turned out to be pretty off base. As far as the first one is concerned, a rep from STK has released the following statement:

“Morrissey never dined at STK nor did we report that he did, but as a matter of policy, of course, STK welcomes him and vegetarians of all stripes. There’s loads of vegetarian options: roasted beet, organic arugula and hearts of romaine salads; nine vegetable options … and on and on.”

And as far as the second point is concerned, you can read my dissertation on the subject here.

Morrissey’s rep also very kindly contacted us last night to alert us to the STK statement and point out that the TMZ piece “also erroneously alluded to a disagreement between Morrissey and PETA who remain mutual supporters and admirers.” True dat!
