    Morrissey is being accused of racism after he made derogatory comments toward the Chinese in an interview with the Guardian Weekend magazine. Noted animal lover Morrissey was talking about the poor treatment that animals receive in China when he said, "You can't help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies." A spokesperson for the Love Music Hate Racism group called the comment "crude racism" and speculated that Morrissey's public image will be unable to bounce back from such comments.

    Do you think Morrissey's comments were taken out of context or was he really stupid enough to make such statements? Is an apology forthcoming.
