Victoria Fuller has been a hot topic this year on The Bachelor Not only is she one of the more dramatic girls on the show, but she has a controversial past that wasn't shared with viewers.

Recently, she won a photoshoot on the show that would put her on the cover of Cosmopolitan, except when the editor found out about a photo shoot she did in the past, she no longer wanted Fuller on the cover. This sparked even more controversy about said photoshoot.

Victoria Fuller's Photoshoot

Fuller participated in a modeling campaign for a company called "We Love Marlins." The merchandise carried the slogan "White Lives Matter" and "Blues Lives Matter," said to represent blue and white marlin.

However, these slogans carry a negative connotation and shouldn't be used lightly. Modeling these slogans still means something, aside from saving the fish.

One user tweeted, "victoria f modeled for a white lives matter clothing brand she's gotta go," alongside a picture of a few models (including Victoria) sporting the "White Lives Matter" clothing.

Her Apology

In a post on social media, Victoria Fuller wrote,

"I would like to sincerely apologize for my involvement with We Love Marlins. My intention was only to support an endangered species. I want to say that I unequivocally reject the beliefs of the white lives matter movement or any propaganda that supports racism of any kind. I would like to specifically apologize to people of color that are affected by racism daily. It was never my intention to add fuel to the racial fire in this country."

Does She Deserve Forgiveness?

She went on to say,

"This has truly been an educational moment for me and I hope to be a voice against racism moving forward. I hope I can be shown grace as I navigate through this process."

Peter Weber (this seasons Bachelor) defended Fuller in an interview with People. He said,

"Just being completely honest, I can't really speak too much on it because I don't really know too many facts about the whole situation. I just recently heard about that with the cover being removed. But you know, obviously, during that moment too, I knew nothing about that. None of us did."

"She's got a lot of endearing qualities."

Weber went on to say,

"All I can speak on is the time I was able to spend with Victoria throughout this experience and I truly enjoyed my experience with her. I really feel like she's a good person. She's got a lot of endearing qualities."

By that statement alone, it doesn't seem like Fuller ends up with Weber at the end of the season. However, we don't think many people will be too upset by that. Maybe she can be forgiven, but we'll see.
