We numerically study particle acceleration by the electric field induced near the horizon of a rotating supermassive (M\sim 10^9-10^{10}M_{\odot}) black hole embedded in the magnetic field B. We find that acceleration of protons to the energy E\sim 10^{20} eV is possible only at extreme values of M and B. We also find that the acceleration is very inefficient and is accompanied by a broad-band MeV-TeV radiation whose total power exceeds the total power emitted in ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECR) at least by a factor of 1000. This implies that if O(10) nearby quasar remnants were sources of proton events with energy E>1020 eV, then each quasar remnant would, e.g., overshine the Crab nebula by more than two orders of magnitude in the TeV energy band. Recent TeV observations exclude this possibility. A model in which O(100) sources are situated at 100-1000 Mpc is not ruled out and can be experimentally tested by present TeV γ-ray telescopes. Such a model can explain the observed UHECR flux at moderate energies E\approx (4\mbox{-}5)\cdot 10^{19} eV.
