Michael Vick to become a PETA spokesman
Ex-NFL star and dog-fighting ring funder Michael Vick, has been offered a new job when he finishes his prison sentence: to become a spokesperson for PETA.
Vick is currently in prison for funding the dog-fighting ring and is in talks to be a spokesperson for the animal rights company.
It appears Vick wants to transform his image through this PR attempt, but doing public service announcements, interviews and making donations to animal-rights groups.
Dan Shannon, the director of the youth outreach and campaigns for PETA said:
"I can do it until I'm blue in the face and it might not convince anybody. Michael Vick sure can. He can say, 'Look, I did it, I was wrong, and it ruined my career,''' Shannon tells AdAge.com.
