Now, I'm not one to call out someone else on their convictions, but the story you are about to read is ridiculous. Actually' I don't mean any of that. It's my job to call out celebrities on everything from political views to fashion mishaps, and this story isn't all that crazy. Of course, I am just qualifying that last part to prove that I really don't enjoy calling out anyone based on their beliefs. I could go on forever with this round of circular reasoning.
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Duck Dynasty. The Robertson boys make me laugh, give me hope in the family unit, and, if you listen to my friends, solidify the notion that I have a definite type, and that type is anything with a beard. It's hard for me to imagine anyone not liking this show or this family, but I'm not going to judge someone who doesn't…even if it means that someone cancels a late night talk show appearance last minute to avoid the cast. Sticking up for what you believe in is an important character trait; however canceling last minute is just plain tacky.

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that singer Morrissey pulled the plug on performing on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live at the last minute to avoid having to share the stage with the boys of Duck Dynasty. Morrissey is an animal rights activist and just couldn't stomach the idea of mingling with hunters. While I may think his measures are extreme, I respect his decision. I just better not see him rocking leather pants like most of the PETA loving celebrities who think that eating meat is murder, but an alligator handbag is a-okay. I'm looking at you Joanna Krupa!
For those of you who aren't familiar with A&E's breakout hit, Duck Dynasty follows a family who has built its fortune on making duck calls, hunts regularly for pleasure, showers not nearly as regularly, and prays before every meal. Add in Uncle Si for added comic relief, and you've got one huge reality show gem.
Morrissey doesn't quite see it the way I do, and he said "thanks but no thanks" when he found out he'd be on Jimmy Kimmel's show at the same time as Duck Dynasty cast, people whom he believes "amount to animal serial killers." That's way harsh (please read that in your best Cher from Clueless voice!).
A source close to Kimmel's show confirms that the singer was set to appear last night but refused to further discuss the situation. The insider only explained that the singer would be rescheduled for a later date. Here's hoping the DD boys aren't too offended by the snub. Who am I kidding? They are far too happy go lucky to worry about two minutes of Morrissey!
For those of you as into the show as I am, the new season premieres tonight on A&E, and I'm beyond thrilled to get to recap it for y'all!
