Some comments are just unacceptable, especially in this time filled with racial tensions and had Michael Vick been more woke, he wouldn’t have made a public statement about Colin Kaepernick needing to cut his hair.
In the sneak peek to Baller Wives, Kijafa Vick reprimands her husband, QB Mike Vick, for some insensitive comments he made that she is now being attacked for. Kijafa is confused as to why Mike would say on national television that Colin needs to get a haircut if he ever wants to secure a job. The comments made on FOX Sports about Colin’s fro were taken out of context as Mike explains he said it from a style/franchise standpoint, not to downplay what Colin stands for. It’s one thing to piss off the fans, but having wifey look at him sideways doesn’t sit right with Vick. He apologizes for his statement because no one should ever be stereotyped by their appearance and although it is the world we live in, it doesn’t make it right. This isn’t the first time Michael was in the spotlight for negativity. All Kijafa wants is for her husband to recognize he is a public figure, and whether he intends for it or not, his words hold weight out here.
Don’t miss the season premiere of Baller Wives, Monday August 14th at 9/8c!
