Former Bb. Pilipinas candidate says topless photo is for breast cancer awareness campaign
031516-JanelleOlafson_PUSH.jpgSa ulat ni Mario Dumaual para sa Bandila, tinanggal diumano sa official roster of candidates ng Binibining Pilipinas 2016 si Janelle Olafson, isang Pinay-American beauty at dating teacher, dahil sa isang topless photo.

Ani Janelle tungkol sa larawan, “that photo is for a breast cancer awareness advertisement, because my family in the States, my aunt, my cousin and this year alone, my tito is a survivor of breast cancer. So that is an advocacy and I don't regret posing for that photo and I’m not going to change who I am for anybody.”

Isa rin sa nalaglag sa listahan ng mga kandita ng Bb. Pilipinas si Kim Ross Delos Santos dahil rin sa isang “sexy” pictorial. Umalma ang kanyang handler na si Jonas Gaffud, na nag-alaga rin kay Ms. Universe Pia Wurtzbach, dahil aniya makasining at hindi malaswa ang photos ni Kim.

Umaasa naman si Janelle na tatanggapin siya ng Ms. Philippines Earth para makabilang sa mga kandidata nila for 2016.
