Tyra Banks is taking accountability.
As reported, the supermodel turned super-mogul came under fire – somewhat randomly – when old clips of her conduct on ‘America’s Next Top Model’ went viral.
So scathing was the retroactive feedback, it’s prompted a response from the star.
Her words below…
Taking to Twitter, a candid Banks said:
Respect to Ms. Banks. She handled that well.
If there’s any take-away from this, it’s that society has changed, voices have been given volume, and accountability – where necessary – is a must.
For yours truly, the hope is that this is case shut on the matter. Because, the fact is the very clips being re-rolled out now few (if any) bat an eyelid at when it was actually on air.
That is NOT to say the content therein was “OK.” But more so to highlight how this isn’t about Tyra being the wickedest in all the land. No. It’s more about how the evolution of social and cultural dialogue can change how we look back on matters like this. And, most crucially, change things for the better moving forward.
