Message from Andrew Kirschner from the group "Stop Viacom and BET from airing The Michael Vick Project":
I spoke with a representative from Viacom this week who confirmed that BET will be airing the Michael Vick Reality Project. As you know, $Vick$ signed a "lucrative contract" (undisclosed terms) to star in his own reality show.
It is time for us to prepare to boycott the show’s commercial sponsors. If Accenture and other sponsors severed or reduced their relationship with Tiger Woods for having affairs, it’s certainly possible for us to persuade other sponsors to drop $Vick$ for torturing and murdering dogs.
We will not accomplish this task with 3,500 members in this group. There are meaningless groups on Facebook with one million members. There are more than 300 million people on Facebook. I have to believe more than 3,500 of them do not support a reality show for Michael Vick.
PLEASE INVITE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS TO JOIN THIS GROUP SO WE CAN HARNESS THE POWER OF OUR MEMBERS TO FLOOD $VICK’S$ SPONSORS WITH E-MAILS AND PHONE CALLS UNTIL THEY DROP THEIR SPONSORSHIP OF HIS REALITY SHOW.
The group is at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=300728520028
We do NOT have to accept things as they are. It is time for us to draw the line. The NFL was bad enough. A reality show is too much. Please help.
On behalf of the dogs,
