Unwilling to bash H&M for the racism scandal it is currently facing? Tyra Banks.
Soaring high on the wings of her ‘America’s Next Top Model’ reboot Banks sat down for an interview with the ‘BUILD Series’ to promote the series.
What happened when a member of the audience quizzed the former model on the drama?
Fresh insight into the situation.
Banks’ estimation, and the heat ‘Top Model’ is facing for its treatment of women of colour in the past, below…
So I’ve been re-watching America’s Next Top Model and omg between cultural appropriation and patriarchy omg this show is problematic

Unfortunately, Banks’ opinion is unlikely to sway those who are rightfully enraged with the brand…or ‘Top Model’s problematic history with race.
Anybody else remember that one season of America’s Next Top Model when Tyra made that black girl cut off all her hair and kiss a racist, then they sent her home??? pic.twitter.com/fcefxSXIoF

old top model is so racist and nothing in our society has changed except for how open we are about our distaste for minorities

some episodes of america’s next top model are really problematic. it’s not even about being in the fashion industry. it’s being racist.

If America’s Next Top Model was as popular today as it used to be, it’d get so much flack. So many problematic photo shoots omg

So I’m rewatching America’s Next Top Model and I may be tripping but was this show not super problematic? Or were their critiques just how it really is

YaYa DaCosta, a former contestant, had this to say about her harrowing time on the series…
