Janelle Olafson's statement
According to Olafson, the "racy photo" she took was for a breast cancer awareness campaign. “That photo is for a breast awareness ad because my family in the States – my aunt, my cousin, and this year alone, my tito, are survivors of breast cancer so that is an advocacy. I don’t regret posing for that photo and I am not going to change myself for anybody,” said Olafson, during an interview in “Bandila” news program aired over ABS-CBN.
The reason of Janelle Olafson's elimination
Olafson stressed that she went through the same selection process of the beauty contest. But the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc., which organizes the annual pageant, has been very strict about the past pictorials of candidates even for art or health campaign.
The Binibining Pilipinas pageant will be held on April 17, 2016 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City.
