TYRA BANKS CATCHES BACKLASH FOR TELLING A MODEL TO CLOSE HER GAP IN RESURFACED ‘AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL’ CLIP
Wednesday, May 6, 2020

The internet never forgets!

A resurfaced clip from Tyra Banks’ reality TV competition show America’s Next Top Model has the former talk show host and model in hot water with fans. In a 2003 clip from ANTM’s first season, Tyra tells model Danielle Evans that a gap in her teeth is “not marketable” and fans want Tyra and one of the judges from her panel posse, Jay Alexander, to answer for the problematic behavior.

Some fans went on to highlight unfair treatment towards black models, specifically dark-skinned models.

Other fans were not here for Tyra’s hypocrisy when in cycles later, she had a white model widen her gap to make her more marketable.

A quote from Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty muse and fashion model, Slick Woods, has resurfaced with her views on Tyra Banks. Best known for her trademark gap, Woods doesn’t believe Tyra paved the way for her at all.

 

 

However, some fans came to Tyra’s defense by acknowledging how ANTM was reflective of the fashion industry at the time and didn’t become inclusive until recently.

Do you agree with the backlash Tyra is receiving?
