The TV reality series "Duck Dynasty" is coming between Morrissey and Jimmy Kimmel.

The British singer and animal rights activist says he canceled his appearance Tuesday on ABC TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" because "Duck Dynasty" cast members will be on the late night talk show.

Morrissey said Monday he can't perform on a show with what he called people who "amount to animal serial killers."

A&E's "Duck Dynasty" reality show follows the Robertson family of Louisiana who run a business selling duck calls and decoys.

A&E did not immediately respond to requests for comment from it and the Robertson family.

A person familiar with the Kimmel show's plans confirmed that Morrissey was to appear. The person lacked authority to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The person says Morrissey's performance will be rescheduled.

ABC says the Churchill band will perform Tuesday on Kimmel's show but declined to comment on the switch.
