Lauren Summer, one of the three women who flashed her breasts at the World Series, has now said that she exposed herself in an attempt to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Summer, and fellow models Kayla Lauren and Julie Rose were each reportedly issued indefinite bans from Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities. They flashed their bare chests at Houston Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole during the fifth game of the 2019 World Series.
In a tweet composed on Monday, Summer (brand executive of the X-rated digital magazine SHAGMAG) said that the stunt was an attempt to raise awareness of breast cancer.
She wrote: "To clarify, yes we knew we would get banned, yes the [banishment] letters are real, and yes, I would do it again lol. More importantly, subscribe to @SHAGMAG_ because the proceeds go directly to women with breast cancer to pay for their medical bills."Check out the video of the women flashing the pitcher here:
The models have also all shared letters which were issued to them by Major League Baseball's Vice President David Thomas. The letters read: "On October 27, 2019, you attended World Series Game 5 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C."
It added: "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."
However, this wasn't the only controversy to overshadow the actual game itself. President Donald Trump was also forced to leave the stadium after being heckled by spectators.
