We reported Tuesday that Smiths vocalist Morrissey turned down a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live because the cast of Duck Dynasty would also be appearing. Morrissey stated that he couldn’t take the risk of being seen alongside the Robertson family, who he called “animal serial killers.” The Duck Dynasty crew and host Jimmy Kimmel had the chance to respond through a short skit on the Tuesday airing as shown below:
During the interview segment, the Robertson boys (Willie, Si, Jase, and Phil) talked about their fame, ducks and the importance of growing a good beard. When questioned by Kimmel about what they thought of Morrissey canceling on the show, the Robertsons expressed confusion as to who Morrissey is.
“Whoever the guy was, I don’t mind. If he wants to eat vegetables, no problem,” said Phil Robertson. “We don’t care. We don’t mind if someone says ‘y’all eat ducks.’ We’re like ‘uh, yeah!’”
The Robertson patriarch then expressed that they didn’t hold any ill feelings towards Morrissey or vegans in general.
