How To go from Torturing and Killing Animals to Being Sponsored by NIKE—-Oh yeah.. “and”
Promoted Pimped OFF by HSUS??
It’s Called Follow the Money. Despite scads of ANIMAL ABUSE laws drafted by HSUS, punishing innocent local folk trying to re-home, and transfer pets in order to avoid putting them in shelters, and the unconstitutional laws drafted by HSUS, and all the HSUS garbage about “animal abuse”– HSUS pimps Michael Vick off, persistently and consistently, then NIKE ends up re-sponsoring Vick again? How very pathetic.
“Because according to CNBC’s Darren Rovell, Vick will be back with the Swoosh.”
“According to Rovell, it’s the first time in the history of sports marketing that a company dropped an athlete from their brand, as Nike did back in 2007 after news came out about Vick and dogfighting, and then signed them back to the team.”
NIKE should be given the NON- humanitarian business award of the decade.
HSUS should be shut down and never allowed to raise a dollar again.
“Michael acknowledges his past mistakes,” said Nike spokesman Derek Kent. “We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.” [This is strictly bull from HSUS as Nike would have no clue as to Vick’s “changes” off the field]
“The 17-page report, prepared by the USDA’s inspector general-investigations division, provided some new details on Vick’s participation in Bad Newz Kennels, the dogfighting operation financed by Vick and formed along with his friends Tony Taylor, Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips.”
The report, dated Aug. 28, 2008, says, “Vick, Peace and Phillips thought it was funny to watch the pit bulldogs belonging to Bad Newz Kennels injure or kill the other dogs.”
