Akhir-akhir ini, foto iklan yang menampilkan frontman The Smiths mengenakan t-shirt Supreme muncul lewat beberapa akun netizen di instagram. Fashion brand Supreme sebelumnya juga pernah mendaulat Neil Young dan Lou Reed untuk kegiatan promosi merek mereka sehingga memunculkan kesan jika Supreme akan terus berkolaborasi dengan bintang rock yang sudah berumur. Alih-alih senang akan hal ini, Morrissey justru kecewa terhadap Supreme, pasalnya, foto yang diambil Oktober tahun lalu ini diambil ketika ia belum tahu jika Supreme termasuk di dalam bagian chain-link dari perusahaan hamburger White Castle, mengingat Morrissey adalah seorang aktivis vegetarian yang melawan dengan keras kegiatan memakan daging hewan. “This was before I learned that Supreme were sponsored in part by the beef sandwich pharaoh known as White Castle,” tulisnya.

Dilansir dari True to Youwebzine pribadi Morrissey, pada Sabtu (13/2) lalu, ia menuliskan rasa kekecewaannya pada Supreme dan permohonan maafnya kepada khalayak ramai perihal kejadian ini:

“I apologize enormously for the enfeebled photograph of me issued this week by Supreme. The shot was taken in October 2015. I considered the photograph to be fit only for a medical encyclopedia and I pleaded with Supreme not to use it. This was before I learned that Supreme were sponsored in part by the beef sandwich pharaoh known as White Castle. Supreme were issued with a legal caution not to use the photograph and their fee would be returned. Evidently Supreme have ignored my lawyer. No safety within the corridors of law. Ugh.

I offer excessive apologies for this association. Shame is indeed the name.” [WARN!NG/Dwiki Aprinaldi]
