Victoria Fuller Slammed for Modeling ‘White Lives Matter’

ABC Victoria Fuller

After Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor premiered, contestant Victoria Fuller was an early standout. In her show bio, Fuller said she’s looking for a man who can love her “through the good, the bad, and the ugly,” and she’ll be holding out hope Weber can do just that.

Fuller’s journey to finding love with the 28-year-old Delta pilot will be a bumpy ride, as Reality Steve has reported that he’s “never” received so many negative stories about one contestant before. Not helping the 26-year-old’s reputation, the fact she once modeled for a company called “White Live Matter.”

Fans of The Bachelor were quickly outraged that producers would select a contestant that publicly joined such an obviously offensive sounding campaign, however upon further research, it was revealed that “White Lives Matter,” a Maryland-based clothing company, was selling aptly titled apparel to support the conservation of white and blue marlins.

It’s hard to get upset at WLM and Fuller when it appears they’re merely trying to raise money for endangered fish. However, once online users found the company’s official Instagram page, which has since been deactivated, they saw WLM apparel was also selling a t-shirt with the confederate flag emblem, making their tagline, which plays off of the “Black Lives Matters” campaign, once again cringe-worthy.

While the WLM website has also since been deactivated, the apparel brand’s Facebook page continues to feature pictures with topless girls and WLM hats, including the confederate flag shirt, which went first went on sale in 2016, and Fuller’s photo, which was posted on March 17, 2017.

After Peter publicly condemned her association with the brand, Fuller issued an apology for being a part of the WLM campaign.

Fuller Said The Rumors About Her Having Affairs With Married Men Were ‘FALSE’

JEREMIAH 29:11 I’d like to start off by saying thank you to all of my family & friends for the overwhelming support. Even to the strangers who have reached out to show me kindness. THANK YOU. The RUMORS you are hearing are FALSE. There will be a time & place where I can defend myself, but for now I choose to wait. HOWEVER, bullying is NOT ok. Nor is it fair. Especially when casting judgement and basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions, & LIES. With that being said— On my best days & especially on my worst days I look to a friend. The best friend I’ve ever had in my life. He does not judge me for what I look like. He does not throw stones when I am down. He makes me smile when I am mad. Licks my tears when I am sad. Lays on my chest when my anxiety is through the roof. And paws my face when I can’t get out of bed some days to tell me, ‘Hey! I’m here. You’re enough. Remember that.’ That friend is my Black Lab, Buxton. I’m so proud to say that my boy is in training to become a #therapydog. Buxton has served as my personal service dog for over a year now, but his new role will be a little different. As a therapy dog Buxton will be providing comfort to children in hospitals, affection to elderly in retirement homes, love to those who may be having a hard time at school, & others who maybe just need a hug! Life will throw you curveballs, but sometimes all you need is some love & loyalty from a 4 legged friend willing to catch those curveballs for you. We may not always know the WHY, but we can rely on the fact that there is a reason. A reason to keep pushing forward wherever we may be in life. A reason that is a lot bigger than us. I trust that God & the Universe are showing me the way. . . . . & just remember.. we all have a story.

Reality Steve reported that Fuller has a terrible reputation back home in Virginia Beach, due to the rumors that she’s engaged in multiple affairs. The blogger said that they weren’t just random hook-ups, but that she had affairs with men who were married to women that were once considered Fuller’s friends.

Reality Steve added, “Here’s another layer to this story: Production knows about it too. In fact, production CONTACTED one of the women I spoke to wanting to know what I know”- which means her past dalliances could become major storylines on the show.

Fuller spoke out about the accusations and indirectly called out Reality Steve’s blog posts as merely “rumors” with no factual base. Fuller took to Instagram and said, “Bullying is NOT ok. Nor is it fair. Especially when casting judgement and basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions, & LIES.”

Fuller also blocked Reality Steve on Instagram. But that won’t be enough to stop the information swirling about Fuller, none of which paints her in a particularly complimentary light. Victoria F. is in for a very turbulent few months while The Bachelor airs on national TV, especially if those involved from her past choose to speak out in individual interviews.
