Michael Vick Blasts Dogfighting App
Eagles QB Michael Vick is speaking out against Android’s Dog Wars app, created by Kage Games, saying it glorifies the crime he spent time behind bars for. After all of the public outcry, the game was briefly taken off the market, last week only to return towards the end of the week under a different name as KG Dogfighting. The game is pretty much the same, although they included a few new points in the game’s description, including: “It is just A VIDEO GAME, and just because something is illegal in real life in certain countries, does not mean it is illegal to make a song, movie, or video game about it.”
“I’ve come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street,” he said in a joint statement with the Humane Society. But an official from the company that created the app, Kage Games, says critics have it all wrong, adding that money raised from the app will go toward fighting animal cruelty.
