While in Nevada -- for a youth football camp -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick caused a stir when he was seen at a auto dealership signing autographs and taking photos for fans. During the event, fans lashed out at the NFL star (via the dealership Facebook page).
According to Las Vegas Sun
, fans took to the Findlay Toyota's Facebook page to call Vick a "dog killer" and threatened to beat up the quarterback.
More "relaxed" fans threatened to boycott the dealership for sponsoring Vick for the promotional and charity events, which includes the May 29 youth football clinic at the Henderson International School.
The dealership began deleting the rude comments off their Facebook page.
Marketing manager of the dealership, Stephanie Bernas explained why Vick was a sponsored for the youth football event, "We're just trying to do something right for the kids and people forget about that."
Vick also responded to the harsh comments towards him, "People have grown to forgive me and give me a second chance. I love Las Vegas, it's a great place."
It's being said that Vick will still take part in the youth football event on Tuesday.
