Vegan singer MORRISSEY is under fire after voicing his support for violent animal rights activists. The former SMITHS frontman insists extreme measures are justified against those who celebrate meat-eating or conduct animal experiments. MORRISSEY has targetted British celebrity chefs JAMIE OLIVER and CLARISSA DICKSON-WRIGHT - who also proudly advocates blood sports - in his rant. He writes in his online magazine TRUE TO YOU: "I support the Animal Rights Militia in England and I understand why fur farmers and so-called laboratory scientists are repaid with violence. "With people in the world such as Jamie Oliver and Clarissa Dickson-Wright, there isn't much hope for animals." But Dickson-Wright responds, "He's probably cracked from a lack of animal protein. "What they've done to research workers is terrifying. The have burnt houses down, they beat people up and throw acid. They are extremely nasty pieces of work.

"Morrissey is encouraging acts of violence."
