Iconic British singer-songwriter Morrissey spoke about his aversion to the word “diversity” in a recent interview at the London Palladium during his UK tour.
The singer described increasingly ‘woke’ record labels as “bloodless,” adding that they will “get rid of you if you say anything that they don’t agree with.”
“Now they talk about, ‘Oh, we must have diversity,'” Morrissey said.
“Diversity is people that you don’t know. It’s just another word for conformity; it’s the new way of saying conformity.”
“We don’t see anything diverse anywhere, it’s all conformity,” the singer said.
Morrissey added, “the great things that we don’t have in common” and that now people want everything to be “the same.”
“It doesn’t mean ‘avant-garde,’ or let’s make ‘really interesting, strange art.’ It means box everybody. Diversity, I think, is a dreadful word. Pin it to anything, and that situation is finished,” he added.
The musician also blasted cancel culture, saying social media users have the chance to “review everything and destroy people,” citing J.K. Rowling and author Germaine Greer who have been vilified by the left for speaking out against transgender ideology being forced into women’s sports and schools.
“We all get together, and try and get rid of these people, and don’t stop harping on about how dangerous they are,” he said.
“It’s pretty lethal, and I think there will be a way to control it eventually, but nobody knows how, yet.”
