She wrote: 'Breast cancer isn't sexy. It's not about saving the boobies. It's not about no bra day, which is really just an excuse for women to post sexy pics of their nipples pressing through their clothes.' She further added: 'It's scars, nausea, pain, bald heads, burnt skin, and broken hearts. If this doesn't make you "aware" then I don't know what will. Does it make you uncomfortable? It should.'
