ABC ‘The Bachelor’ Spoilers: Fuller Gets A Bad Name
When the “White Lives Matter” clothing campaign came out, Fuller got a bad name! Fans of the show threatened to boycott it and wanted her done being affiliated with the Bachelor all together. She did apologize back then and in her most recent Instagram post, she did again. “I’d first like to say, I have been a part of the problem. And for that I am sorry. Being naive, staying silent, or not educating ourselves of the ongoing racism in our country IS contributing to the problem. Period. I don’t want to be part of the problem. I’ve taken time to educate myself, read, listen, and although I can never fully grasp or understand I am willing to keep learning. This isn’t a trend. This is a societal problem that needs change and hopefully, I can use my platform as a way to educate and continue every day to learn from others. The BLM movement has fought to create a world free of anti-Blackness, where every black person has the social, economic, and political power to thrive.”

Fuller kept going, “Understand White Privilege: White privilege are benefits granted to those because the color of their skin; in other words, purely on the basis of our skin color door are open to us that are not open to other people. Far too many of us who are closer in proximity to being white erroneously believe that we do not have to take the issues of systematic oppression seriously or don’t feel the need to speak up. So now we have a choice. We can continue to use unearned privilege to remain ignorant, or can put aside the color of our skin in order see clearly and live differently.”
In February, we saw the whole “White Lives Matter” clothing campaign for the We Love Marlins campaign. The clothing was referring to white marlins and blue marlins. The shirts did have a version of the Confederate flag on them too. Fuller really struck out with these shirts and she ended up getting pulled from Cosmopolitan.
