Nike, It's Time to Drop-Kick Michael Vick

Nike continues sponsoring Michael Vick, even though he faces federal felony dogfighting charges. Witnesses say he and associates cruelly killed dogs who didn't show enough "gameness." Nike stopped plans to roll out a new line of Vick shoes, but that's just a feeble punt, since they continue selling other Vick shoes. He is a completely unsuitable role model, and a terrible reflection on Nike as a responsible company.

Send an email to Nike President, CEO and Director Mark Parker, asking Nike to sever all ties with Michael Vick immediately.

Dear Mr. Parker,

Please immediately stop sponsoring Michael Vick. I'm sure you don't want to be associated with someone indicted by a federal grand jury for crimes related to dogfighting. Reports of extreme cruelty to dogs who didn't "perform" to the fighters' satisfaction only add to the disgrace Vick brings to Nike. And selling shirts to children depicting this cruel man as a "hero" is absurd.

(Edit Letter Below)

Please cut your ties with Vick immediately--anything less would reflect very badly on your brand.

Dear Friend, I thought you might be interested in this HSUS campaign to persuade Nike to drop football player and alleged dogfighter Michael Vick. Now that a grand jury has indicted Michael Vick on federal animal fighting charges--causing a tsunami of bad publicity for anyone associated with him--Nike must act. Please ask Nike to cut their ties to Michael Vick immediately. It will only take a minute. Here is the link:
