Cosmo kills 'Bachelor' cover in ‘White Lives Matter’ dustup

Cosmo kills 'Bachelor' cover in ‘White Lives Matter’ dustup”

And while many of us were waiting to see what the final photo would look like, Cosmo chose to cancel the cover altogether after finding out that Victoria previously modeled for a "White Lives Matter" ad campaign.

The scandal began when Weber selected Fuller to appear with him in a photo shoot for the March issue of Cosmopolitan magazine However, that blew up when Cosmo Editor-in-Chief Jessica Pels published a letter explaining why the magazine would no longer be running its "Bachelor" cover. She graduated with her Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and was a part of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. "It would be nice for you to gather all facts before jumping to bash someone. The company "We Love Marlins" is in support of catching white, blue, & black marlins & releasing them back into the wild". At the moment, Kelley was contemplating going on The job , and she chose the arbitrary assembly as a'sign from God' she needs to take action.

She also acknowledged how she could "definitely see how this could be offensive". "It was never my intention to lessen this matter".

On Tuesday, Weber, 28, defended Fuller and said he hopes viewers will form their opinion on her based on what they see on the show.

"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", the airline pilot told Build Series via People.

"When it came time for me to choose the victor of the challenge - whose prize was a digital cover of Cosmo - all I knew about the contestants were their first names and the energy they conveyed through the camera lens", Pels explained.

"All I can speak on is the time I was able to spend with Victoria throughout this experience", he added. She's been to 26 different nations and enjoys to record her excursions on social networking.

Yet, the sneak peek below does make something clear: She's willing to get herself mixed up in some of the drama.

"She's not ideal, I'm not flawless, no one's flawless", Weber told HuffPost. Maybe we'll see them down the road within this episode, or maybe they just weren't captured on-camera ... which does feel like a little bit of a failure of production. "You know, I got no problem with her". While most of us learned about her old modeling gig shortly after Monday night's episode aired, one internet detective apparently discovered the WLM campaign photos about a month ago and called the contestant out in a shady Instagram post shared on January 3.

"The Bachelor" continues tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 5, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
