Morrissey Under Fire for Wearing Racist Emblem on Jimmy Fallon Show

Morrissey has appeared on the Jimmy Fallon show in the USA wearing a badge featuring the logo of racist far-right group For Britain.

For Britain is the English equivalent of the Anning Nazi party in Australia. The group is led by racist Anne Marie Waters. Holocaust denier Ingrid Carlqvist spoke at their conference recently.

Waters formed the party in 2017. Morrissey is on record as saying that the party gave him hope. Regardless of his support for the vile group, Morrissey says “I would do anything for my Muslim friends, and I know they would do anything for me,” he wrote in the letter. “In view of this, there is only one British political party that can safeguard our security. That party is For Britain.”

Morrissey wore the For Britain emblem proudly on his jacket on the Jimmy Fallon show. Fallon and his crew had no idea what it meant.

Morrissey performed ‘Morning Starship’ from his new covers record for the show.

Jimmy Fallon is yet to comment on the controversary Morrissey’s inconsiderate actions have caused.
