Michael Vick BAILS on 'Oprah' Interview

2/16/2011 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has canceled plans to do a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey ... in what would have been his first major interview since being released from prison.

So far, no word on why Vick pulled the plug.

Mike has one hell of a story to tell -- after seemingly turning his life around and putting together an unbelievable season with the Eagles after being out of the game for two years.

UPDATE: Vick released a statement saying, “After careful consideration, I will need to postpone the taping of the Oprah Winfrey interview scheduled for February 22."

He continues, "I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future.”

Oh no!!!!! I was really looking forward to that. Come on Mike, man. Tell your handlers to let you do it. They scared or something? Is the new image real or what man? You can handle Oprah.

Michael Vick has paid a very severe punishment for a very severe crime, and now it's time to forgive and give him a second chance. Let it go, people!! I don't believe he would dream of getting back into dogfighting.

Very wise decision. He didn't go on because he knew what Oprah would do to him. Look what she did to the author of A Million Little Pieces. It would be an hour of Oprah wagging her finger. I'm glad people say no to her. She's over.

I wish he would sit down with someone else. Oprah doesn't let her guests talk much...she is usually running her mouth.

Oprah was going to give him a pass just like everybody else. He should still be in prison for what he did to those poor animals. The only thing he is sorry about is that he got caught. If not he would still be fighting. I only wish somebody would break his ribs and he then he can see what pain is about.
