Morrissey: 'Norway massacre nothing compared to fast food killings'

Morrissey has sparked fury among fans after insisting the massacre in Norway last week was "nothing" compared to the number of animals killed daily for the fast food industry.

The controversial former The Smiths star was on stage at a show in Warsaw, Poland on Sunday night when he gave his thoughts on the two terror attacks in Oslo, which claimed the lives of at least 76 people.

According to the Daily Mirror, before starting his track Meat Is Murder, the outspoken vegetarian told the crowd, "We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown... Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald's and Kentucky Fried S**t every day."

The paper claims fans flocked to web forums to slam the remark.

A spokesperson for the singer says, "Morrissey has decided not to comment any further as he believes his statement speaks for itself."

Morrissey has been vehemently opposed to the meat industry throughout his 28-year career, and has even banned burgers and sausages from being cooked at venues on his current tour.
