In a shocking twist to the Michael Vick is going on Oprah story, Michael Vick will not be going on Oprah.
On Wednesday night, it was announced that Vick’s appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show had been canceled.
Vick’s camp is citing personal reasons and bad timing for the cancellation, but dog lovers across the country are taking all of the credit as they believe their flooding of phone lines and emails voicing their disgust with Winfrey’s decision to have Vick on the show lead to the show being scrapped all together.
A rep for Harpo Productions said in a statement, “Mr. Vick’s representative called last night to cancel his appearance for personal reasons.”
Vick was sentenced to 23 months for his hand in a dog fighting ring, causing him to miss out on 2 seasons in the NFL.
Many Oprah fans are still upset that the host would even choose him to appear in the first place, not claiming victory because it was Vick who pulled from the show, not Oprah who canceled.
Do you guys think Michael Vick deserved to be invited? Should he have canceled?
