Creepy media falsely accuse Bec Hyatt of auctioning used underwear
For example, lowlights form a piece a Uproxx.com include:
•Today In Classy MMA News: Somebody Paid $300 For Bec Hyatt’s Used Underwear
•She’s not exactly pulling in Ronda Rousey money, so turning over your gear — or in this case, the clothes you wore before you even put ON your gear — is an easy way to pop a couple hundred bucks.
•An easy way to pop a couple hundred bucks from a creep. You do what you’ve gotta do.
Bec was soon to jump to her own defence telling Susan Elizabeth Shepard (Sports on Earth)
"I was raising all the money on my own, but my major sponsor Americana are bringing me out to Toronto so I don't have to pay for a huge lump of my fights now. Otherwise I'd have to raise it all by myself, which is what I was gonna do in the beginning. I don't have money just sitting there because I won't be fighting until next year."
"A lot of people assumed there were creepy people trying to bid on my underwear, but it actually turned out to be a lady who collects memorabilia. I just think that when it comes to women's -- I guess they look at it as underwear," said Hyatt. "It's just my weigh-in gear. But people automatically think it's some creep who wants to smell them in their basement."
