Bachelor Contestant Sarah Newlon Defends Yadier Molina Cancer Sign During World Series
Newlon, who was also on Season 3 of the Bachelor spin-off Bachelor Pad, rushed to Twitter to defend the incriminating photos.:
For those that think I would ever mock cancer, my sign meant which player inspires me to stand up to cancer. Im sorry it came across poorly.— Sarah Newlon (@SarahNewlon) October 28, 2013
Regarding the smiles, those around us pointed us out on the jumbotron, and that's what we smiled about.— Sarah Newlon (@SarahNewlon) October 28, 2013
In no way would we ever laugh or make fun of cancer.— Sarah Newlon (@SarahNewlon) October 28, 2013
Newlon's sign drew ire and anger from Cardinals fans, who just assumed she was rooting for the Red Sox.
I hope the #RedSox fan who held up Stand Up For Cancer with Molina's name on it...accidentally has a beer dropped on their head.— Darin Pritchett (@Sportsbeat960) October 28, 2013
