    I didn't watch the whole episode but there's a clip below. It's just ok, but of course Moz had a humorless overreaction which makes it a bit funnier. Morrissey's crankiness always struck me as odd since his lyrics with the Smiths were often quite humorous.

    Morrissey is just a humorless narcissist, and I hate that the person singing on so many of my all time favorite songs is him.

    I try to ignore the news so that I can continue to admire artists who create things I enjoy. I love the bulk of Morrissey's artistic output with The Smiths and as a solo artist. "Never meet your heroes," as they say.

    The Simpsons is a terrible show, but Moz is a horrible human being. Match made.

    When someone can't laugh at themselves they're in real trouble.

    Besides, since Morrissey became the latest has-been to embrace the far right, he lost any right to complain about anything. Ever.

    Which pretty much puts him out of a job.

    Heaven knows he's humourless now.

    I looked it up, and found that I still don't know anything about what you're posting about. I'm sort of thankful for that. I only clicked on your post because it said debacle.

    Really ?
    Will he apologize for 20 years of cletus ? and 20 years of frink and Dr hibbert ? And homer ? As an overweight white american nerd hillbilly with a bit of african descent, i am outraged.
    It is a cartoon for pete's sake. And it is not like Apu Nahasapeemapetilon is evil.

    Mortuary, ahem...Morrisey is one of the most self-centered, judgmental, humourless and hateful humans to ever “make it big”...he even holds his fans and bandmates in contempt.

    It’s no surprise that he couldn’t take a little ribbing.

    Never got the guy, or his celebrated guitarist.
    More for y'all, I suppose.

    He should have a better sense of humor about himself. I was never much into Morrissey beyond The Smiths' song "How Soon is Now?" Then a few years ago, my wife got tickets to see Morrissey and Billy Idol at the Hollywood Bowl, 'cause she's really into Billy(!), so I did a deep dive into his music and came to really like a lot of it. His show was good, too, and I was surprised to discover that he has a huge Latino following in Los Angeles. It's a thing.

    Morrissey does indeed have a sense of humor about some things.





    This is one of my favorite moments from the night I saw him, recorded by someone else.

    I was always sad that one of the most talented guitarists of his era ended up playing in a band with such a talentless narcissistic bum as Morrisey. Imagine Marr in any number of bands from previous eras.

    As for Morrisey in recent times - total scumbag!!!!
