Snoop Dogg is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. The team recently signed Michael Vick as a back up QB. With an injury last week to starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Vick is now hoisted into the job.
But some fans still can’t move beyond Michael Vick’s 2007 dog fighting conviction. He’s done his his time in jail, apologized several times, and has done work for animal rights, but some still feel as if its not enough.
Snoop has a message for those fans:
“I love Vick. Before he got to the Steelers. I loved him when he caught the case, [and] after he caught the case. Mistakes are made to be made. I mean, he did his time. What y’all gonna do hold it over his head forever?”
He continued, “It’s over with. He’s been punished, he’s been banned from the league, he came back, he’s on the good foot, he ain’t been around dogs, he ain’t do nothing like that.”
“He’s been about the positivity and that’s what’s wrong with people. We always judge people about what we did as opposed to what we’re doing. I love him to death whether he’s a Steeler or not. He’s a friend of mine.”
I’m with you Snoop. It’s time for people to move on.
