During his interview with ET, Peter addressed Victoria’s “White Lives Matter” photos, saying he “in no way supports that type of campaign.” While it may have been for marlin conservation, Peter said “there’s no defending that”

“The Victoria that I got to know on the show, I never would have ever expected anything like this to come out with her,” Peter said. “I don’t know if she was fully aware of what she was doing when she was modeling for that campaign.”

“It’s unfortunate that she partook in that and in that type of campaign and I think if she could do it over again, she would,” he shared. “I hope she has a chance to address the public and make things right.” {ET}
