Lauren Summer is a model and brand executive at Shagmag who went viral after she flashed her breasts with models Julia Rose and Kayla Lauren behind home plate during Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park.
Summer, 25, was attending the game with her friends and frequent collaborators Julia Rose and Kayla Lauren, who had planned the stunt to promote the Shagmag brand. Summer and Rose flashed the camera in the bottom of the 7th inning and were seen on live television (WARNING: Graphic Content).
As the game ended, viewers started posting videos from the game on Twitter showing the models topless. Summer and Rose took responsibility immediately and started retweeting fans that were able to capture the moment.
Their motivation for the stunt originally looked to be promoting Shagmag as the trio wore t-shirts emblazoned with the magazine’s logo. In a video Rose posted on Twitter right after they flashed the camera, the group promotes the magazine in addition to saying “donate to breast cancer” and “save the boobies”.
Summer responded to critics on Twitter who said the flashing was only a publicity stunt for Shagmag, tweeting “Our proceeds from @SHAGMAG_ will be going to women with breast cancer and paying off their medical bills. Meeting with them in person and doing whatever we can to help with the platform we have. ☺️”
Lauren and Julia posted letters they received from Vice President of Security and Baseball Operations at Major League Baseball, David Thomas, that banned them from all future MLB games and events.
“You violated the fan code of conduct by exposing yourself during the seventh inning in order to promote a business,” the letter reads. “You are hereby banned from all Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities, indefinitely.”
USA Today confirmed with MLB spokesman Michael Teevan that the league has “distributed a letter to the individuals in question, and the letter set forth an indefinite ban for each.”
Shagmag posted a video on YouTube detailing the incident:
