By Megan Sheets For Dailymail. Bachelor contestant Victoria Fuller found herself in the middle of some off-screen drama after photos emerged in which she appeared to be modeling 'White Lives Matter' merchandise.
Fuller, a year-old medical sales representative from Virginia Beach, Virginia, is facing backlash from Bachelor fans over newly-uncovered promotional photos for the brand WLM Apparel Clothing. Bachelor fans pointed out that many of the brand's clothes feature 'racist' imagery like confederate flags - indicating that they may be sending another message beyond just conservation.

Bachelor fans pointed out that many of the brand's clothes feature 'racist' imagery like confederate flags. Fuller has not publicly commented on the WLM controversy.
The year-old medical sales representative from Virginia Beach, Virginia, posted this photo to Instagram Wednesday. In one photo shared by the brand's Instagram account, Fuller is is seen wearing a royal blue cap with the letters WLM emblazoned on the front.
The logo matches merchandise modeled in other posts on the account, which has since been deactivated. Some fans came to Fuller's defense and argued that the clothing was merely meant to support marlin conservation. Others, however, were convinced that the brand - and Fuller, by extension - was promoting a hidden message.
A few fans came to Fuller's defense and argued that the clothing was merely meant to support marlin conservation. Some fans are convinced the brand - and Fuller, by extension - was promoting a racist message. Another fan called the photos 'problematic' and said: 'I feel like it belittles [Black Lives Matter]. Also what [does] the confederate flag have to do with fish! Not a good look for her, who we probably already don't like,' a fan echoed.
One critic went so far as to claim that Fuller's modeling 'niche is racism'. Other photos of Fuller showed her on a fishing boat wearing what appeared to be WLM merchandise. Fuller is seen front left with other models wearing WLM merchandise on a fishing boat.
The fishing boat photos were posted by Twitter user GameOfRozes, who wrote in the caption: 'Seemed very confident during this shoot'.
Fuller, who appeared on Tuesday night's episode of The Bachelor starring Peter Weber, has not responded to the social media storm surrounding her WLM photos. The racism allegations came after Fuller was targeted in another controversy in the Bachelor universe.
Bachelor blogger Reality Steve, who is infamous for digging up dirt on each season's contestants, claimed in October that his email inbox has been flooded with tips from people who know Fuller and say she has a history of sleeping with married men.
