Morrissey Said Some Fairly Insensitive Things About the Norway Massacre

Morrissey.

Morrissey, noted animal-rights activist, reportedly said this onstage in Poland on Sunday: "We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald's and Kentucky Fried shit every day." This, understandably, has not made people very happy. The Guardian collected a few online reactions to the statement, which include, "The killing of children compared to KFC & McDonald's?!!! What an [arsehole]!" and "Jesus Christ, Morrissey, you utter, utter bell-end." Gotta agree with anonymous commenter No. 2 on this one: Morrissey is being an utter bell-end. [Guardian UK]
