Vick’s Endorsement Still Deadly to Businesses
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.
