Michael Vick had a three-date book tour with Barnes & Noble in Georgia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in the making, but that has all been canceled due to the complaints and threats he has been receiving.

He was supposed to be out promoting his new book, “Michael Vick: Finally Free,” but it really seems as though his life is anything but. His publishing company released a statement about why his appearances were 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. “We’ve been assured these threats of violence, which have been reported to the police, are being taken very seriously by local authorities.
“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.”
Yikes! It really doesn’t seem as though people, pet lovers (or in this case it seems extremists) will be able to move forward and let Vick try to turn on the right path.
It really seems, to me, like he is trying to make a difference in his life, such as taking pet ownership classes, to be better. It seems very difficult to do when people are still criticizing and threatening after this time when lessons were learned.
Do you think it is fair Vick had to cancel his book tour?
