Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was forced to cancel his book tour after “protests escalated into threats of violence.”

Back in 2007, Vick was convicted of interstate dog fighting and spent a year and half in prison.

Since then, Vick has tried to turn his life and image around; donating his time and money to charities, and getting back out on the football field.

From CNN:

But not all have embraced the new Michael Vick.

The quarterback was set to promote his new autobiography “Finally Free,” but had to cancel upcoming dates across the country after threats to Barnes & Noble Booksellers and an independent bookstore in New Jersey.

“It is disturbing that a few extremists would threaten Vick’s family and store employees,” said Vick’s spokesman Chris Shigas. “Michael Vick has millions of fans and has countless letters from teachers thanking him for inspiring students to make positive change.”

Last year, Vick announced he had gotten a dog for his family in an effort to show his children how to have a healthy relationship with animals.
