Thirteen years after being convicted and serving prison time for his role in a dog fighting ring, Michael Vick remains an extremely controversial figure in sports.

Earlier this year, 800k people signed a petition to have Vick removed from serving as an honorary captain at the Pro Bowl due to his past history of animal abuse.

Just saw this on Facebook and was absolutely disgusted. When is the NFL going to take any responsibility for the behavior of it’s current and former players? To honor a man who had zero regard for animals is unacceptable and I would like your help to make sure he is NOT honored at the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl.

On Monday, Vick started trending on social media because some people were furious he was working the Steelers-Washington halftime show as an analyst.



Despite actually having paid his debt to society for his actions and being a model citizen for over a decade it doesn’t seem like some people will ever forgive Michael Vick.
