The singer has been reminded of his previous racist statements...

Morrissey attempted to join #TheShowMustBePaused yesterday - June 2nd - and received a stern rebuke from fans.

The singer made the post on Twitter, joining with a music industry wide event created by two Black women.

#TheShowMustBePaused was designed as a way for the industry to step back, to listen to the Black community, and to create a positive, progressive, forward path.

Morrissey's introduction was scarcely needed, given his habit of controversial statements couched in racist language.

The post was widely rebuked:
