Welp, Michael Vick’s life just doesn’t seem to be getting easier, despite the years that passed since that dogfighting ring. The past keeps coming back to haunt the poor guy.
So he’s got this new book out called “Finally Free” and he’s been scheduled to sign copies of the book LIVE at Barnes and Noble stores in Atlanta, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Well, let’s just say peeps that aren’t fans know where to find him. And they want to kill him.
According to the book company’s website, the March 26 appearance set for Exton, Pa., was listed as canceled.
“While we stand by Michael Vick’s right to free speech and the retailers’ right to free commerce, we cannot knowingly put anyone in harm’s way, and therefore we must announce the cancellation of Mr. Vick’s book-signing appearances,” said Byron Williamson, president of Worthy Publishing, according to PhillyMag.com. “We’ve been assured these threats of violence, which have been reported to the police, are being taken very seriously by local authorities.”
Vick has tried to revamp his image since he got out of prison and back in the football game, but there are still peeps out there that want to get their hands on the guy.
Check out these death threats on Facebook that were REALLY posted:
“I would go there to slit your throat knowing how you treat animals.”
“hope your kids don’t fall in a pool with a battery.”
“I would snap your neck if I met you, your [sic] a piece of trash.”
Ouch. If I were this guy, I’d be scurred to be seen in public.
