T.I.

The Mike Vick Halloween Tribute

[Update]

11/1/2011 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TI Halloween Michael Vick CostumeT.I. has a lot in common with Michael Vick -- especially the part where they spent a couple of years in prison -- but last night T.I. paid tribute to the guy who's proven it's possible to bounce back.

T.I. and his wife Tiny hit up a Halloween costume party at the Gold Room in Atlanta -- T.I. dressed as Mike Vick... his wife dressed as a ref.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... the costume was his wife's idea, but T.I. agreed because he's been an MV fan since the Atlanta Falcons days ... and has a ton of respect for the guy.

So, we gotta ask ... is T.I. trying to make a statement??

10:23 AM PST -- Mike Vick LOVES the tribute!!!

The NFL star released a statement to TMZ saying, “T.I. is a talented artist and I appreciate his support. I wish him success in everything he does.”

The KimK and LiLo controversies are silly, immature girls making bad decisions. Michael Vick showed a serious mental health problem, a lack of character, and frankly- I have NO idea how his teammates could ever trust someone with that degree of cruelty in their mind. This fool, TI, is just another sad example of an individual with a lack of empathy or even common sense.

TI, How can you admire someone like Mike Vick. He fought dogs and made them suffer. I have no respect for you.

Why would you want to tribute that F*CK! He should have been stripped from ever playing ball again. What are we saying to the world..."Oh its okay, he only killed some dogs" How about someone killed something of his (like football)! His wife has to be one of the stupidest bitches that ever lived for recommending that he dress up like a dog killer. She's no better with her trash bag tattoos!

So this is considered non-racist on this site??? I'm just asking...

Of course a black guy isn't going to have a problem with the fact that Michael Vick killed & tortured hundreds of dogs in a dog fighting ring. They're both ghetto @ss morons. N*****s of a feather flock together!


As for me and my house - we don't give a "F" that MV killed some damned dogs, I wish someone would get the cats next...

Blah    

So tell me please...how did those dogs who were held up and electrocuted by their genitals...or those dogs who were bashed to death...or those dogs who were put into a ring and ripped apart in a fight to the death like the costume?

Yeah, but that's ok...let's just forgive Michael Vick because he's a good quarterback?

Next year are you planning on going as a KKK member?

Shame on you.


Blah!

A strip club? Real classy. But figures. As does the Vick hero worship.

Go figure, T.I. pay tribute to his hero--a disgraced football player, animal abuser. Are these rap dudes that stupid or are they just so out of touch with reality that in their ghetto stream of things anything goes? Didn't hear a peep from black folks when Michael Vick was under attack [if anything they were probably saying it was a race thang---pitiful people]
