Morrissey Says Paul McCartney Should Ditch Knighthood

Morrissey and Paul McCartney are two famed vegetarians. Moz says that Maca can prove his commitment to animal rights by ditching his knighthood.
Moz says that Maca could step up his animal rights stance by distancing himself from Britain's royal family and give up the knight title, which he received in 1997.
Morrissey said he was amused to hear that McCartney was miffed that the Staples Center in L.A. was going meat-free for the former The Smiths singer, since the venue didn't the same so for the songwriting legend. Moz called it a victory for the animals, not for him as an individual. He said, "I know he works tirelessly for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), but he also loves the British royals, whose treatment of animals is abysmal. The Queen herself wears enough fur to blanket most of Russia… yet Sir Paul gives her the thumbs up! If he cared passionately about animals, he'd return his knighthood. He doesn't need the Queen's approval."
Those are big words.
Do you think Morrissey has a point? Should McCartney give up his knight status to make a statement about animal rights?
