Model who flashed players at World Series reveals stunt cost her $80,000
Earlier this week, three models were banned indefinitely from all MLB events after they flashed the players during the 7th innings of the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals World Series game.
The outlandish stunt was captured by the television cameras, and the footage was quickly circulated on social media. People weren't talking about the Astros' 7-1 victors - they were talking about Julia Rose, Lauren Summer, and Kayla Lauren.
Check out the damning footage of the flash below:
Sharing news of their ban on social media, the models received a letter from the MLB that read:
"On October 27, 2019, you attended World Series Game 5 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
"During the game, you violated the fan code of conduct by exposing yourself during the 7th inning, in order to promote a business. You were also part of a scheme in which you induced others to expose themselves to promote the business.
"You are hereby banned from all Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities, indefinitely."
In a follow-up interview with The New York Post, Julia Rose revealed that they will be targeting more sporting events in the near future, saying: "We definitely have some more stuff up our sleeves."
The trio also claimed they flashed "for breast cancer" (this month being Breast Cancer Awareness Month), and to promote their business - a digital magazine called SHAGMAG. Summer then revealed that all proceeds from Shagmag will go toward helping women with breast cancer pay off their medical bills.
Now, in an interview with Complex, model Julia Rose has revealed that the daring stunt set them back a whopping $80,000. She said:
"So we had it planned almost a year ago. I knew I wanted to do something at the World Series. But we just didn't know, obviously, who was playing, what game, where it would be, the location or anything. Once we found out who the teams were, we then bought the tickets, I believe, not even a week ago. [...]
"Our overall total tickets for the four that we had, we had six tickets total, for all of them, we paid around $80,000."
Rose also revealed that their presence at the game led to officials becoming suspicious of their plans, and that the stunt almost never happened:
"One of the GMs at the stadium knew who we were and pulled us aside and basically told us that you have to zip our jackets up because our shirts said SHAGMAG, so they said they didn't want SHAGMAG on TV. [...]
"So we agreed and we said we'd zip up our jackets. We knew we were going to do that, obviously, at the game, but then what we found out after talking to some friends watching the game at home was that they knew what we were going to do, because they had shifted the cameras over so we weren't on camera anymore because we had seats literally right on the edge.
"So they perfectly shifted the cameras over and we're like, "Okay, now we're going to have to mix things up and we're going to have to take this, go on the opposite side, and just run down the stairs when you find a good opportunity and do it."
SHAGMAG has reportedly had over 10,000 new subscriptions since the stunt, and Rose opened up on what the magazine means to her and its fans:
"I started the magazine called SHAGMAG and I bought both of the girls on with it. It's basically a 'Free the Nipple' magazine that inspires a lot of women who want to feel sexy and see that kind of content. Knowing that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our platform is 'Dude, we love boobs and we like to support other women.'
"So why not raise awareness for this, donate most of our support that we get from this stunt, and donate and help pay off medical bills for women that can't pay them off themselves? So that was the true motive behind it."
It certainly sounds like a good cause, so can we really be mad at the ladies for lifting their shirts?
