Vick’s Endorsement Still Deadly to Businesses

QuiBids backs down after outrage from customers.

Eagles QB Mike Vick isn’t getting much forgiveness for his dog-fighting past. The latest example? His Tweet on Monday endorsing auction site QuiBids drew anger from that company’s users. QuiBids on Tuesday withdrew the endorsement:

We would like to sincerely apologize for the endorsements posted on Michael Vick’s Facebook and Twitter accounts yesterday.

As most employees here at QuiBids are dog owners, we want you to know we would never, ever condone animal abuse, and we’re sorry that our recent actions did not reflect our values.

Please know that we’ve had Michael delete his post and have stopped all future campaigns with him. Additionally, we’ll be making a contribution to the ASPCA to help the fight against animal cruelty.

We very much care about you and what you think and will take measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

Since joining the Eagles, Vick has partnered with the Humane Society to speak out against animal abuse.

    Forgiveness, forgetting may come sooner were he to speak out strongly against dogfighting and those involved at any level. Its a lazy way to make money off of the savaging, torture of innocent, helpless, defenseless animals. Its unethical, immoral, disgusting w/o honor, sadistic and cruel. Everything a man isn’t. Only cowards are involved, allow this. BS excuse to say its a culture thing. If they think its such a great thing, let them … breeders, bettors, excusers … suit up, jump in the pit and go at it with each other. I promise no one will protest this.

    Come on. It’s not as if anyone would have hired Vick to an endorsement deal without knowing this background. They knew what they were getting into. Therefore I conclude that he was hired to get fired, that the whole thing is a publicity stunt by a scam auction company.
