English rock legend Steven Patrick Morrissey slammed the culture of abandonment, saying in one last job interview that “diversity” was used to enforce conformity.
Sam Esty Rayner Photography released the video interview with the actress on Monday.
Morrissey launched a tirade against abandonment culture when he spoke about how music labels were dumping artists for political reasons.
“People could do five flops and the label would hold on to them, now the labels are pretty anemic, they just get rid of you if you say something they don’t agree with, they’re not interested,” Morrissey told the London Palladium .
“Now they’re talking about ‘Oh we gotta have diversity diversity diversity,’ diversity is people you don’t know and it’s just another word for conformity, it’s the new way of saying conformity,” he added.
He went on to say that social media is part of the problem because it encourages groupthink.
“I think so, because now everyone’s a seasoned critic, everyone’s a seasoned scientist, they know everything. They have a chance to check everything and destroy people and if they can get their friends to join and do a campaign of ‘let’s get rid of such a body’, you know, I think it’s more or less Germaine Greer and JK Rowling, the two perfect examples,” he replied.
Greer is a feminist writer who was canceled due to comments She criticized the transgender agenda. Harry Potter author JK Rowling was similarly targeted by transgender activists after she wrote an essay outlining her support for transgender people, but not for many of their political causes.
Despite his criticism of social media, Morrissey went on to say that this gives ordinary people the opportunity to attack the political elites with their grievances.
The 63-year-old rock icon is touring in support of a new album whose release date is uncertain.
