Morrissey has always been an acquired taste of a human being, mouthing off on issues that are often polarizing for society as a whole. Now, the acclaimed British singer has sounded off on the recent Hollywood purge of sexual predators, pondering on what he perceives as the ‘unfair treatment’ of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.
In a recent interview with German news outlet, Spiegel Online, when discussing recent allegations made against Spacey, Moz said that ‘It seems to me Spacey has been unnecessarily attacked…..All at once everyone is guilty. Anyone who has ever said to someone else, “I like you,” is suddenly being charged with sexual harassment’
He attempts to cover up his ignorance by philosophically musing ‘We can not permanently decide from above what we are allowed to do and what we can not do. Because then we are all trapped’.
Go back to sleep Moz, you’re out of touch and we don’t need another victim blamer in music.
His take on Weinstein was also shocking, saying that ‘people know exactly what happens. And they play along. Afterward, they feel embarrassed, or they do not like it. And then they turn it around and say: I was attacked, I was surprised, I was dragged into the room’. Nothing in regards to the force and abuse of power onto vulnerable victims?
Shirley Manson of Garbage has taken to Twitter to give Morrissey a rightful and justified ‘Fuck You’.
Morrissey has lost the fucking plot. Weinstein + Spacey unfairly attacked? For rape, sexual abuse+coercion etc. Fuck U Morrissey! Fuck YOU.
