“This was before I learned that Supreme were sponsored in part by the beef sandwich pharaoh known as White Castle.”
Supreme is a street fashion label that has previously worked with other rock stars like Neil Young, Lady gaga, Raekwon and Lou Reed and would seem to have the knack of working with older, tricker artists. Still it was a surprise when they got Morrissey to be photographed in their wares but then again he may have a point…
There he was appearing on billboards for Supreme dotted across the planet and things seem dot be going very well when suddenly he put the breaks on with the following statement on his True to You site.
‘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.’
