Cosmo Scraps Cover Featuring 'Bachelor' Contestant After Learning She Modeled For 'White Lives Matter' Campaign
The newest season of The Bachelor is well under way and, as always, drama abounds.
But, for once, it seems the show's producers have gotten more than they bargained for with one of the contestants.
A recent episode featured a Costa Rica photoshoot where the contestant who had the most chemistry with Peter (the Bachelor) would get to grace the cover of Cosmo.
Victoria F took away the win, but now Cosmo refuses to use her image after discovering she used to model for White Lives Matter.
