Another Reason Jimmy Kimmel Is Awesome! [VIDEO]

It's official: Morrissey has beef with Jimmy Kimmel. Actually, maybe "beef" isn't the right word. He has "boca" with Kimmel. Here's the deal: Morrissey was supposed to be on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday night . . . but he bailed after he learned some guys from "Duck Dynasty" were also going to be guests. He referred to them as, quote, "animal serial killers."
Anyway, Jimmy had some fun with that on the show, and not surprisingly, Morrissey does NOT have a sense of humor about it. Check it out...
Of course Morrissey didn't appreciate it and yesterday, he responded with a strongly worded statement, where he chastised Jimmy for making fun of his beliefs. He said, quote, "I was disappointed . . . our smiling host managed to ridicule depression (70% of Americans suffer from depression according to the National Institute of Mental Health). He then found time to ridicule healthy eating (the obesity epidemic in the U.S. costs $147 billion per year in medical expenditure), and he also ridiculed the notion that animals should be entitled to the possession of their own lives. Furthermore, he found time to jokingly promote gun-ownership . . . hugely amusing for the parents at Sandy Hook, no doubt. He also promoted his special guests 'Duck Dynasty' . . . who kill beings for fun."
Damn that Morrissey. He doesn't even have to sing to make me depressed.
I don't think Morrissey understands the nature of late night talk shows based off his final comment, "None of the above issues are, of course, as important as Jimmy Kimmel himself, who has finally revealed his show to have an overwhelming loss of meaning. Tune in and re-live the intellectual fog of the 1950s." I think he set himself up for a let down by putting "meaning" into the humor Jimmy Kimmel has spent years doing as a career.
