- Appropriation and sexualization of the kimono on America’s Next Top Model photoshoot
- Appropriation of henna on America’s Next Top Model photoshoot
- Elimination of a contestant for being too fat on America’s Next Top Model
“The judges additionally commented on London’s weight gain during deliberation.”
“ London’s weight gain was too obvious to be ignored, and Jay discussed it with her after her photo shoot, telling her that while she was way too small for plus-size modeling she should watch her eating habits to continue to fit in sample sizes.”

- Tyra criticized Cycle 3 runner-up Yaya’s “Afro-centric” head wraps
- "On last night’s show, when Tyra was evaluating finalists Joanie, Danielle, and Jade on their Cover Girl commercials (the girls had to recite a few lines about mascara), she singled Danielle out, imitating her delivery and demonstrating the difference between an acceptable black Southern accent, and an unacceptable one. Tyra’s deft imitations of the cadences of black speech were impressive, if somewhat broad, and suggest that she too may have learned to modify her speech. Perhaps Tyra was simply trying to toughen Danielle up: The fashion industry is run by white people, many of whom may think "black" or "country" accents are uncouth, a mark of poor upbringing. But shouldn’t Tyra be using her clout to challenge this stereotype?” -Slate.com
- Blackface/Brownface on ANTM: "Contestants of "America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 13 posed for bi-racial photo shoots. Following the orders of the great Tyra Banks, the 6 remaining candidates of the reality modeling competition were brought to Hawaii where they were transformed into different races - bleach blonde Erin Wagner was turned “Tibetan and Egyptian,” Southern belle Laura Kirkpatrick was transformed into “Mexican and Greek,” Korean Jennifer An became “Botswanan and Polynesian,” African-American Sundai Love was made into “Moroccan and Russian,” redheaded Nicole Fox became “Malagasy and Japanese,” and blonde Brittany Markert was colored to look “Native American and East Indian.” -Newfaces.com
- SO MUCH slut-shaming and ageism in her interview with pornstar Sasha Grey. She refuses to believe that Sasha wasn’t sexually abused as a child, does some pretty major STI shaming, insists that Sasha’s parents must be ashamed of her, doesn’t believe any of Sasha’s (totally legit) reasons for getting into porn, and brings on another woman to scream at her. She essentially brought Sasha on the show to scream at her and shame her and try to make her quit the business. I agree that the porn industry is problematic, but this is NOT the way to solve anything.
- One challenge on ANTM involved wearing padded booty shorts and learning to “booty tooch” (stick out your but in a fashion-y way for photos). One contestant, AzMarie, a QWOC, refuses to wear the butt pads because she thinks it’s disrespectful and detracts from her androgynous look. Tyra gets SO MAD that she sends AzMarie home in elimination even though she had been doing very well in the competition so far.

The Saga Of:
I really hate getting my hair brushed, but there is absolutely nothing I can do about it so I will sit here and make faces until it’s over because crying won’t make it stop.
This is a struggle I knew all too well.
Stay strong, baby girl.
Every black female can relate.
