Animal Lovers Begin Boycotting Nike, Michael Vick

07.04.11 7 years ago 108 Comments

Mike Vick and Nike face their first round of protest fresh on the heels of the Swoosh’s announcement to endorse Vick again. Even with 21 jail-time months served and many beginning to welcome him back, it looks as if not everyone will be so quick to forgive the once fallen football star. The condemnation comes in the form of an online petition, simply titled “Against Michael Vick,” calling for supporters to voice their displeasure and avoid financially supporting Nike and “all of the brands that they own…including Hurley, Roxy, Converse, Billabong, Quicksilver, Chuck Taylor, One Star, Jack Purrel and the Bauer brand of ice skates & hockey skates.” To date, over 1,000 electronic signatures have been garnered.

Update: And now there’s a petition to petition against the petitioners. Click here to sign up! Thanks to Mr. G for the bright idea lol.
