Forbes Displayed a Dog Food Ad Above Mike Vick's "Most Disliked NFL Players" Entry

As Andy Gray mentioned earlier today in Hot Clicks, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is Forbes’ most disliked NFL player for the second time in three years (last season's trophy went to Ndamukong Suh). While some respondents may be bitter about the QB's impact on their fantasy (or real-life) team, the vast majority assuredly still had Vick's dogfighting history in mind when casting their vote. And that is what makes the inadvertent appearance of an Alpo ad above Vick's Forbes entry all the more unfortunate.

As BuzzFeed tech editor Charlie Warzel observed:

Indeed, it is just a coincidence—I just visited the page and was presented with an ad for a cloud computing company, and I can't recall any data storage scandals in Michael Vick's past.


If you follow hundreds of people on Twitter, Ryan Glasspiegel should be one of them.
