Morrissey: Prince William an Animal-Killing Embarrassment to the UK!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Morissey is taking Prince William to TASK over a recent hunting trip, taken just before the heir to the throne launched a campaign to stop illegal wildlife trafficking.

In a lengthy statement posted on a fan site, the Smiths singer and outspoken animal rights advocate (and royal family critic) blasted William, writing:

William in a Tux
Morrissey Live

"One day prior to giving a public plea on behalf of animal welfare, Prince William is to be found in Spain (with Prince Harry) shooting and killing as many deer and boar as they possibly can!"

"Although William's speech (no doubt written by his publicity aides at Clarence House) will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize" the irony, he believes.

"Animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map, all in the name of sport and slaughter."

"Whenever you shoot an animal in the head the outcome is usually the same: death."

"Just why William kills innocent and defenseless deer does not matter - the fact is, he does it, and we must go on and on asking why any form of violence is acceptable to the British establishment."

"It is easy for privileged people to assume jealousy to be the reason why anyone would wish to condemn them, but the British Boil Family never fails to be a colossal embarrassment to the United Kingdom."

"But the rationalists amongst us - who are never allowed to speak - are intelligent enough to realize that endangered species are dying out only because of people like William and Harry."

"For this we can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces."

Ouch ... tell us how you really feel?

Of course, this isn't the first time Morrissey has shared how he really feels about the killing of animals for fun, or the royal family that represents his homeland.

In a blog post last November, the singer wrote:

"That the future of the monarchy rests on the natural idiocy of Harry, zombified William and airhead [Kate Middleton], is quite frightening. We, the British people, are trapped."

He also threatened to bail on Jimmy Kimmel Live unless the host booted the Duck Dynasty cast, and made good on that threat when Kimmel declined to do so.
