Dog lovers still upset over Michael Vick’s past have not yet given up their pursuit to disrupt his public events with protests.
Roughly 50 demonstrators spent their Sunday afternoon chanting at Vick and holding signs as Vick signed autographs and posed for pictures with hundreds of fans that lined up to meet him in Butler, New Jersey.
This exchange, as detailed by Scott Fallon of NorthJersey.com, sums up the scene nicely:
“You ought to be ashamed of yourselves!” one protester yelled at a kid. “Where’s you mother?”
The young fan replied: “She’s right here, wearing an Eagles jersey!”
Butler Sports Card shop co-owner Jeff Robbins was unapologetic about the appearance.
“I’m not bringing him in because he killed dogs,” Robbins said. “I’m bringing in him because he’s the biggest autograph draw out there right now.
“The fact people are pissed off, I 100 percent respect that. If they want to complain they should go to the commissioner of the NFL for letting him back in.”
