ESPN Quickly Pulls Picture of White Mike Vick

ESPN magazine recently dedicated an entire edition to the Eagles’ Mike Vick and somehow thought it would be a smart move to promote it in a piece by Toure which  featured a photo of Mike Vick as a white person.  Below is the picture that was VERY quickly pulled and replaced with a shot of Vick, as is.  I’m fairly sure drumming up a fictitious controversy based on race is not a professional or classy way to sell more product.  Not so smart ESPN.   Toure later tweeted that ESPN inserted the photo without his knowledge, and we believe him.

Picture ESPN originally posted of "white" Mike Vick. It was quickly pulled.
