Former Smiths singer Morrissey is at the centre of yet another controversy after labelling the Chinese a ‘subspecies’ in an interview with the Guardian newspaper.
The outspoken singer made the remarks in relation to China’s ‘horrific’ record on animal rights issues:
“Did you see the thing on the news about their treatment of animals and animal welfare? Absolutely horrific. You can’t help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies.”
Chinese groups in the UK have already moved to condemn the singer’s remarks, but so far the reclusive front-man has declined to comment further on his views.
Morrissey has also revealed that his forthcoming autobiography is ‘almost concluded’.
