Famous vegan Morrissey recently went on a rant against UK department store Fortnum & Mason. The store sells foie gras, despite the dish being illegal in the UK and it recently being banned from even royal functions by Prince Charles. On True To You, the Morrissey fansite that Moz regularly posts to, the former Smiths singer penned an open letter titled "It isn't nice and you shouldn't do it."

Check out the letter below:
Congratulations to Prince Charles for banning foie gras from all his functions.
However, unsurprisingly, this most savage and cruel commodity continues to be the favorite "dish" of smiling mother-to-be Kate Muddleton (from whom, in fact, we expect no less.)
Foie gras production is illegal in the UK, yet the ever-so-correct Fortnum and Mason have found suppliers in France who will keep their shelves stocked - possibly with the hope that smiling Kate will wobble in and place an order for her unborn child.
Since Fortnum and Mason are now the only department store in London who are associated with the pitiless atrocity of foie gras, would you please write to them/contact them and exert pressure on them to stop selling such asavage beyond belief "product".

Foie gras is the liver of a duck or goose that has been intentionally fattened.
