Michael Vick

I Refuse to Hide

After Death Threats

Michael Vick says he will not be bullied into seclusion after receiving serious death threats -- and vows to continue working with community service organizations in the wake of the scare. 

TMZ has learned ... Vick -- who cancelled his book tour after "credible threats" were called in to several Barnes & Noble stores across the country -- says he refuses to let his haters control his life.

Vick's rep tells us ... "Regardless of the past threats, he has millions of fans around the world and has been receiving countless messages of support. He will continue to keep an active schedule working with charities."

Mike will continue to work with the Team Freedom Outreach (recreation and visitation programs for youth detention centers) and the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization. We're told Mike has security measures in place in case more threats are made and plans on giving cops a heads up before he visits the centers.

"Mike is committed to helping make his community a better place," Vick's rep says ... adding, "[he] is determined to continue his work with charity and helping others."

He did his time so he should be forgiven but he should not allowed to profit from his crimes against animals in any way.

Celebrity death threats are so asinine, most of them come from TMZ users anyway and we all know the majority of them are 500 pound middle American. Vick has nothing to worry about.

I see that the list of charity organizations that he is working with, does not include any animal organizations. Nice move, Vick. People still see you as the dog murderer and abuser that you are. Best try to reach out to some animal charities -- well, the ones that will still have you.

When it comes to Vick all I can think about is if even half the people who were up in arms and outraged(as I also am) got on the band wagon when a kid was abused and killed then maybe the laws would start being tougher on the sicko's who abuse and kill them!! Love my animals they are helpless and depend on me but so were my kids? Thank god they are grown with kids of their on...

It's ironic because the people that are threatening Vick are no different from what Vick did before with the dogs. They are both the wrong thing to do. Killing a dog and killing a human is the same thing. So I got to ask the sanity in these extremist dog lovers. You ain't no different than Vick
