Indie rock mega star and highly-opinionated vegan Morrissey has some harsh, and way-over-the-top opinions about meat-eaters these days. Morrisey recently said in an interview with fan site True To You, "I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia...They are both rape, violence, murder. If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away." Yikes. Equating the brutal rape and assault of a child to eating a cheeseburger? Nope... no... uh-uh. Please, can YOU walk away? Thanks.

He continued the interview discussing the recent success of his autobiography and the upcoming novel he’s working on. But, really, if you drop “paedophilia” into the conversation, and that’s pretty much all that’s going to resound. However, it’s not the first time Morrissey has gotten extreme with his opinions on everything from meat, to immigration, to the Olympics. Take a look.
