Nike Suspends the Michael Vick V Sneaker

You probably heard that Michael Vick was indicted on animal cruelty charges this week. Set to release August 23rd Nike Vick V, but now Nike has suspended the release. Quoted from Nike:
Nike is concerned by the serious and highly disturbing allegations made against Michael Vick and we consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent. We do believe that Michael Vick should be afforded the same due process as any citizen; therefore, we have not terminated our relationship. We have however made the decision to suspend the release of the Zoom Vick V and related marketing communications. Nike will continue to monitor the situation closely and have no further comment at this time.

We will see if Nike actually ends the contract. Via CNBC.
