Tyra Banks Breaks Silence on Insensitive Moments on 'America's Next Top Model'

Tyra Banks is speaking out in response to the insensitive moments that were featured on her reality show America’s Next Top Model throughout the years.

Clips from the show have been resurfacing this week and fans have looked back at some of the cringeworthy moments.

Tyra once told Cycle 6 winner Dani Evans that she’d never be a successful model because of the gap in her teeth. Cycle 13 included a photo shoot where contestants had their skin darkened for a “biracial themed” shoot. Cycle 4 runner-up Kahlen Rondot was asked to do a photo shoot in a coffin in a graveyard, just one day after her friend died.

“Been seeing the posts about the insensitivity of some past ANTM moments and I agree with you. Looking back, those were some really off choices. Appreciate your honest feedback and am sending so much love and virtual hugs. ❤️,” Tyra wrote on Twitter on Friday night (May 8).

Tyra has been hosting the show since 2003.

In a recent interview, Tyra opened up about the weight she has gained since posing for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover last year.
