Representatives of the legendary ’80s-old rocker ripped “The Simpsons” this week after the singer was derided in the latest episode of the cartoon TV classic.
Official social media The famous Mopey songwriter was initially thrilled to be portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, and even shared a Smiths-themed preview poster of the Sunday episode “Panic on the Streets of Springfield”.
That changed quickly after one had seen the episode with a Morrissey clone called “Quilloughby” who first impressed Lisa Simpson for his heartfelt, emotional lyrics, but then became greedy, argumentative, overweight, and xenophobic.
“It’s surprising what a ‘turn for the worst’ writing for The Simpson TV show has taken in recent years,” read an attack on the singer’s official Facebook page, who later became his manager Peter Katsis.
“Unfortunately, The Simpson show began to provide great insight into the modern cultural experience, but has since degenerated into an attempt to capitalize on cheap controversy and explain malicious rumors”, The online tirade continued.
Matt Groening’s team has “stopped creating” and “instead turned apologetically hurtful and racist,” said the post of former frontman’s representative for The Smiths.
“None Wonder … that the Simpsons viewership has dropped so sharply in recent years, “said the post sniffing.
Subsequently, Cumberbatch pronounced” Quilloughby, “the former frontman of The Snuffs , a band that “dominated the indie scene of the 1980s with their literary, sardonic music”.
After Lisa Simpson made him her imaginary friend, the singer – with Morrissey’s trademark and Mancunian accent – closed them a militant vegan with parodies of songs like “Meat is Murder,” written by “Flight of the Conchords” star Bret McKenzie.
By the end of the episode, “Quilloughby” was fat and popped out of his shirt – and gave to one Highly anticipated reunion from The Snuffs to that it was a “money robbery” to cover his legal costs for the lawsuit against people “for saying things about me that was totally true. “
Then he caused a riot by eating a pastrami sandwich and firing sausages into the crowd. He said he was no longer vegan when he discovered it was” made up by foreigners. “
“And there are far too many on this planet!” Yelled the singer from the stage when Lisa turned against him as well.
“That’s right, I hate the strange! Come to this country and take our jobs! Sleep with our men! “yelled the cartoon character.
61-year-old Morrissey has long been haunted by accusations of racism, beginning in the early 1990s when he flirted with skinhead culture and nationalist images.
The passionate vegan who loves his Madison Square Garden Show tried unsuccessfully to ban meat in 2015, once called the Chinese a “subspecies” for the treatment of animals in the country and insisted in a 2019 interview that “ultimately everyone prefers their own breed of meat,” noted the Independent .
In a 2019 performance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”, he sparked controversy by wearing a badge supporting the far-right British party “For Britain”, which calls for the “end of the Islamization of Britain” .
However, Facebook criticism insisted that “The Simpsons” painted him as a racist just to “insult the artist,” pointing out that the show repeats behau was exposed to ptions of racism itself. The star’s management also reminded fans that, despite overwhelming demand, Morrissey never reformed The Smiths.
However, his team seemed most upset about the “harshly hateful tactic” of him with his stomach hanging out of his shirt to show (if he never looked like that at any point in his career) “.
But the attack will undoubtedly hurt the show’s director Debbie Mahan, who described the episode as” love labor “with her husband, the” resident Morrissey -Experts “, labeled.
” I’ve worked on this show for almost 20 years. And that – by far – is the most fun I’ve ever had on an episode, “she wrote on Instagram late last week.
