PETA has just learned that the graphic video footage that Morrissey traditionally plays during “Meat Is Murder” made three audience members faint during his July 18 show at The Depot in Salt Lake City, prompting security staff to call out, “They’re dropping like flies in there!” All three were taken to the hallway, in front of PETA’s table, to be revived by EMTs—and all three grabbed copies of PETA’s vegan starter kit as they recovered.

The details, including an eyewitness report, are available on PETA’s blog.
