NFL star Michael Vick says he won’t be bullied by a spate of recent death threats, but he has canceled his upcoming book tour in the wake of them.

The once-imprisoned QB and author of Finally Free: An Autobiography says he will continue his work with community service organizations, too.

Vick nixed his book tour after “credible threats” were called in to several Barnes & Noble stores across the country, but “won’t let this control his life.”

Michael’s rep says, “Regardless of the past threats, he has millions of fans around the world and has been receiving countless messages of support.”

“He will continue to keep an active schedule working with charities.”

Mike Vick will continue to work with the Team Freedom Outreach (recreation and visitation programs for youth detention centers) and the VFW organization.

He also has several security measures in place in case more threats are made and plans on giving police a heads up before he visits the centers.

“Mike is committed to helping make his community a better place,” Vick’s rep says. “[he] is determined to continue his work with charity and helping others.”
