An autograph signing by Eagles quarterback Michael Vick in York, Pa. has been canceled temporarily, thanks to death threats made against the event’s organizer.
According to WHP CBS 21, event organizer Joe Bartolo claims death threats were made against him, his wife and their family for organizing the Vick signing, which had been scheduled for October 31 at a local Buffalo Wild Wings. Bartolo also says he was forced to shut down JJ Cards-N-Toys Facebook page.
“The message was, ‘I wish your wife and kids would die,'” Bartolo told WHP CBS 21.
