If ever there were a person who could have their Twitter rights legally stripped from them, it would be Marcus Vick. The younger brother of Michael Vick tweets out some of the most ridiculous things you will ever read, and his homophobic remark about the Arizona Cardinals earlier this week was a prime example.
Those Arizona Cardinals got a brunch of Fruit Tarts on there team….. Watch out for the pile on pumps this year!!!

As for what Vick is referring to, we have no idea. There has been some speculation surrounding the sexual preference of free agent safety Kerry Rhodes this week, who played for the Cardinals last season. I suppose that could be what Vick is trying to reference, but we really have no way of knowing. Marcus has put Michael in some incredibly uncomfortable positions in the past with the stuff he tweets, so this isn’t exactly a surprise.
What is somewhat of a surprise — even for Marcus — is that Vick currently has a warrant out for his arrest after failing to appear in court in Virginia over a week ago. He has skipped multiple court dates since promising to pay $40,000 to a woman who sued him in 2008 claiming psychological trauma following an alleged relationship Vick had with her when he was 19 and she was 15. Would you be tweeting under those circumstances?
On second thought, I’m not surprised at all.
