Singer Morrissey has provoked more controversy after confirming his support for the extreme right-wing party for Great Britain, while also claiming that "everyone prefers their own race".
The singer also said he believed that Nigel Farage & # 39; would be a good prime minister & # 39 ;, which would stir up criticism of the former frontman of The Smiths on social media.
But others supported the rock star and said he was wrongly focused on his views, including the statement that the UK was a & # 39; dangerous hateful place & # 39; used to be.
The 60-year-old has repeatedly denied the allegations of racism, but last month a single customer complained about his religious views with promotional posters for his new album California Son from the Merseyrail services.
He also sparked more controversy by appearing on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in the US while wearing a badge that supports For Britain, which has called for the & # 39; end of Islamization of the UK & # 39; .

Angry social media users said they & # 39; had wasted their time & # 39; to the music of Morrissey after they became angry with his comments
Other social media users claimed that Morrissey does not understand race and that it transcends color, religion and social expectations
His last comments came in an interview with his cousin Sam Etsy Rayner for his website Morrisseycentral.com in which he again praised the party.
Morrissey said: & I think (for Great Britain) Anne Marie Waters is the only British party leader who can unite left and right. I don't know any other party leader who WANT this.
& # 39; The UK is now a dangerous hatred and I think we need someone to stop the madness and speak for everyone.
& # 39; I see Anne Marie Waters as this person. She is extremely intelligent, eagerly committed to this country, she is very fascinating and sometimes very funny. & # 39;
He added that the word & # 39; racist & # 39; & # 39; meaningless & # 39; had become.
Morrissey said: & # 39; Everyone ultimately prefers their own race. Does this make everyone racist?
& # 39; The people who reduce every conversation to a matter of race could be considered the most traditional & # 39; racist & # 39; because everything in life is not exclusively a matter of race, so why would you make it that way?
& # 39; Diversity cannot possibly be a strength if everyone has ideas that will never correspond.
& # 39; If boundaries are such terrible things, why did they ever arise in the first place?
& # 39; Borders bring order. I cannot see how opposing halal slaughter makes me racist if I have objected to ALL forms of animal slaughter all my life. & # 39;
Morrissey said he had never supported UKIP but it was & # 39; clear & # 39; that Brexit party leader Nigel Farage & # 39; would be a good prime minister & # 39 ;.
His views have again shared the opinion with many on social media who criticize him.
A Twitter user wrote: & # 39; My partner is black, I am white. What ppl (sic) like Morrissey will never understand, is that & # 39; race & # 39; the colors, religion and social expectations.
Morrissey, pictured in 2017, also said that Nigel Farage, correctly, & # 39; would be a good prime minister & # 39;
& # 39; Humanity is the only race we know. It takes a long time to catch on. & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; No, @officialmoz. Some of us prefer people who are friendly, accept and support others; regardless of where they were born or what their skin color is. & # 39;
And another wrote: & # 39; To think that I wasted a few years of my life after Morrissey and thought he was smart and misunderstood. Every time he opens his mouth, something ignorant falls out. & # 39;
Others vowed to listen to The Smiths in response to his controversial words, with a former Twitter fan who claimed that the music is now & # 39; infected & # 39; used to be.
But some defended his words and mocked those who attacked him as & # 39; virtue signalers & # 39 ;.
A Twitter user said: & # 39; So & # 39; n thin line between love and hate when it comes to Morrissey. Swap "race" for "company" and his quote becomes a Smiths lyrics. Unfortunately, the dogs smell blood.
& # 39; Oh, the irony of a vegan torn apart by Woke virtue signalers. Let them throw the first tweet without sin! & # 39;
Another wrote: & # 39; I certainly see the point that you are making. People generally prefer to live within communities they are familiar with.
That said, it's not the same as "white people prefer white people and black people prefer black people", right? & # 39;
Others supported Morrissey and said he was unfairly targeted by & # 39; virtue signalers & # 39; and & # 39; cruel intolerant liberal fascists & # 39;
One supporter has even branded the cruel intolerant liberal fascists of his critics, especially those who vowed to burn their Morrissey records.
Morrissey also offered his opinion on the Brexit, saying that the result of the referendum should be worked through & # 39 ;.
The singer said: "I did not vote in the referendum, although I can see how absolutely nothing is attractive about the EU.
& # 39; I have always believed that the result of the referendum should be implemented. If the mood had remained, there would be absolutely no doubt that we would stay.
& # 39; In the interest of true democracy, you cannot argue with the wishes of the people. Without the people nobody gets paid in a high post. & # 39;
Morrissey also claimed that he was not asked to sing during a benefit concert for the bombing victims of the Manchester Arena because of his political views.
Referring to Oasis & # 39; s Do Not Look Back in Anger, that since the atrocity an & # 39; anthem of defiance & # 39; has become in Manchester, he added: & I look back WAN in anger! I would have sung "World peace is none of your business" or "Life is a pig" – or something truthful and meaningful.
& # 39; If my child had been killed in the Manchester Arena, I would not light or wave candles. I'd be in a complete craze. & # 39;
