Colbert Report Studios Go Meat-Free for Morrissey

The musician asked that the show’s studio and green room be free of animal products during his appearance.

For his October 9 appearance on The Colbert Report, vegetarian rocker Morrissey requested that the show’s studio space and green room become a meat-free environment. Host and comedian Stephen Colbert broached the subject of Morrissey’s request during their on-air interview, calling the British musician a militant vegetarian and joking about being woozy from a lack of bacon. The rocker retorted that animals are conscious beings who are “nicer than humans,” and that just because one’s grandmother “will probably be tasty” doesn’t equate to a reasonable explanation to eat her. Colbert and the show’s staff went vegetarian for the day to honor the Meat is Murder star’s stance—a request he makes of all the venues he visits while on tour.
