Tyra Banks Sucks.



It's official. I hate Tyra Banks. She might be this week's Blank or Not-A-Blank, because I'm interested to hear what y'all think of her. I have never seen a photo so unbelievably airbrushed in all of my life. Way to be proud of how you look, Tyra. I feel like my Tyra Banks posts are rambling, incoherent messes because she kind of enrages me to a level that I am not comfortable with. So I will just leave you with another airbrushed photo of Tyra, and try to collect my thoughts for Friday. Stay tuned.



More Here.

Keep up the good work, though looking at blog posting, negative words against Tyra are almost nonexistent. Maybe it's a conspiracy. I'll try to keep it up on my end. To the soldiers that are clearly a minority.

you know said...

you hate tyra? obviously you know nothing about her and you are probably just some jealous weirdo who is insecure about themselves. how can you look at a picture of her and think she's "airbrushed"? she has natural beauty and if you ever watched any of her shows you would know that. you cannot airbrush a person in a tv show. and another thing, do you not have more of a life than to sit around saying oh tyra banks isn't absolutely gorgeous she's just airbrushed

thats not the original photo its a different one (the bikini one) All models are airbrushed thats a fact. Even "regular" people mess w/ their photos. tyra banks does a lot of good by not being stick thin and being proud of it and not changing it. So i don't think its right to hate a person just because they have an airbrushed photo.

for those of you who keep making a point of her bein ''black'' and beautiful - so what? everyones human why does it make it so different that she is black? no one goes around saying ''white and beautiful'' stop thinking your amazing because shes black it doesnt matter what colour her skin is! shes beautiful without having the colour of her skin being in the limelight.

Okay first of all, all models, celeberaties, or any othe rperson who is viewed by the public is air brushed at some point in time of their career, most of them all the time. if tyra was so vein and wanting ot look so perfect in her pictures as you make her out to be fake, then y in the hell would she strip all her make up off on national tv on her show, and show how her "fixed" up pictures looked without the airbrushes or toning of her body on tv. also if she was so full of herself, y would she show a picture ofher fat on tv, on her own show, proud of it yea she lost the weight again but for ehr job that's expectedd. ALSO if she thought so highly of herself y would she playfully act a fool with one of the other gorgeous CURVEY celeberaties Beyonce' in her dressing room, on tv. shes not bad at all and does so much to help the female community. for a school project i wrote to her and unlike many other celeberaties, she did actually WRITE Back to me, also sending me photos signed NATURAL photos she took at the moment she wrote me the letter. she is an amazing person to admire ther eis absolutely no reason if u have any sence at all for u to hate her, that just shows wat kind of person u are. :).

Rachel said...

I agree with you! I've hated Tyra since she said "short people can't be top models." Short people can do whatever they want. And while it's true that all models are airbrushed, that picture was airbrushed and then some..

SHE AINT NO OPRAH....

HER REPORTING SKILLS ARE SO HORRIBLE....

I feel sorry for America...

JUST HOW STUPID HAVE WE BECOME TO LISTEN TO MISS tyra banks?

Pretty Damn stupid...

So I realize that this is was all posted ions ago, but its still the first thing that pops up when you google "Tyra Banks Sucks" so I think that me it's still vaguely relevant. Regardless of her skin color or whether she is beautiful, she is deeply and profoundly stupid. She has a disgusting way of having people on her show so that she can pat her self on the back, and if you really think about the subtext of her ideas, you will be disturbed. "I'm going to see what it's like to be fat for a day." Okay, we get it bitch, the implication being that the other 364 days of the year you are just sooooo hot. "I'm going to ask women about their careers in porn--but I'm also going to point out about one million times to the studio audience, that I basically get to do what they do-model for pictures, without having to sell my soul. That's how amazing I am." She really is an idiot and if you can't see that, then I understand, because it takes a little more thinking. If you like Tyra Banks, you just aren't really a critical thinker and you are probably incapable of conceiving any ideas other than the most basic ones. "Pretty girl, smiling, giving people money, bright colors, says positive things. She good."

I'm with you there. Tyra completely sucks. The things she does and her may seem good, but it's not difficult to see through it. She's nothing but a lying, self-absorbed, condescending hypocrite. All she ever does is talk about herself, all the while building up her reputation. She doesn't really care. This is her job, she gets paid to have this image. All she does on her show are these ridiculous episodes where she does crazy stupid things like "go undercover as a homeless woman to see how it really feels to be homeless." All she did was go into skid rowe with makeup on to make her look ragged, and with her big cameras and go in, and actually try to say that after spending 3 hours in skid rowe with cameras and security guards all around her, that she now understands how it feels to be homeless. Get over yourself, Tyra. And if she's not doing that, she's doing some ridiculous manipulative thing to show how big of assholes men and white people are, and how they're all out to get everyone else. I'm a woman, and I'm a feminist, but Tyra takes it beyond that. She goes into prisons and talks to and hugs the women in there who have brutally murdered people, and she says that it's the fault of men that they're there. And then after going into prisons and hugging the murderers, she goes on her show and yells at strippers, and asian women who have gotten plastic surgery. Tyra says they want to be white. Look who's talking (*cough cough nose job hair weave cough cough*). Everything that happens on her show gets redirected back to her, her past, her career, her sucess, her opinions, her experiences, the fact that she is black and juicy, and so on. Tyra has created this image of herself that's just not the truth. And for the record, this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she is black, and if you really want equality, you won't use that fact that she's black as a way to defend her. In my book, it makes no difference. She could be any race and any gender, and she would still be an asshole. Furthermore, I doubt that someone who doesn't know anything about Tyra would be interested in starting a discussion about her, nor would anyone who knows nothing about her respond to the post. I have watched ANTM and Tyra for as long as they have existed, and I still think that Tyra's an immature diva who needs to get over herself. Tyra isn't strong at all, she's proved that by her constant need to compliment herself, talk about herself, and bring herself up. She can't take critisism. I could go on about her forever, but I am starting to get angry at a level that I'm not really okay with.
ADHlkhirehyjiophjbpoewjhpoieaj're'opkI HATE TYRA. And power to those that feel the same as I.

OMG I AGREE WID JUDAS!! SHE HIT THA NAIL ON THA HEAD!!! GREAT WAY TO EXPLAIN HA IN A NUT SHELL!! GREATT!!

Tyra is an idiot. Anybody who can listen to her talk about anything for more than a minute and not see that she has nothing intelligent or worth listening to say is just as stupid. I dont give a fuck what she looks like. I'd think she is borderline mentally disabled if she was or wasn't gorgeous. She sucks, and she makes the society that watches her just one step closer to mass retardation.

Harvardgirl7 said...

I don't hate Tyra, I just really don't like her. She brings people on the show to yell at them if they don't fit into what she thinks is "okay". She lets them know that she thinks what there doing is wrong,immoral and basically they're shit.She wore lingere for years on the catwalk and in Vic Secret comercials and still considers herself better then playboy bunnies,catalog models...etc. The way she treats people is ridiculous. I'm done I'm too mad to keep going, but to everyone that agrees: Good for you for not only having a brain but actually using it!!!

Anonymous said...

Tyra is a dumb bitch who thinks that she is better than every other person who comes on her show. I dont care that shes black or beautiful or whatever the pro-tyra people are saying. How vapid are you that all you pay attention to is the color of her skin and her looks? She could be the ugliest white woman on earth and I would still think that shes a hypocrit and a moron. Anyone who actually listens to what she has to say and the way she contradicts herself would understand that Tyra has absolutely no merit to talk about controversial issues or any other topic. Seriously, why does this woman even have her own talk show? If she wasn't a model she would have never gotten her own show. Every topic that she talks about is tainted by her own biased opinion. She chooses which guests she wants to praise and which to put down. She completely attacks anyone who disagrees with her. Tyra's show is a step backward for black women; She only perpetuates the stereotype of black women that shes constantly trying to fight...

And she ruined America's Next Top Model!!!

FUCK TYRA

John said...

i am a 27 year old male and all i see is a show that shuns out males and puts us lower as a rank which is sexist. for SO LONG women fought for rights and now the tail end hits males, to be stereotyped with the show topics for the past months.....stop being sexist HUMANS ARE ALL EQUAL.

Really?? get the hell over yourselves...your nothing but insecure people who are jealous of beautiful successful people..if your that into bashing tyra banks..look in the mirror chances are your just sitting at home on your dead ass eating chocolate, getting huge and hating life..
wow..grow up people... shes beautiful, smart and yes, she sometimes goes overboard but if you actually watch a show you'd maybe know wtf your talking about.
and if your a male bashing her, get over it loser. go get a gf..your just mad cuz your lonely and opressed.
go to school, get a job, stop watching tv. and worry about your lazy self instead of reflecting on others..
peace losers :)

just another question

how do you suppose she ruined antm if shes the start of it all..

you would be suggesting that the show was bad from the start, and it wasnt

are you mad cuz your not skinny enough or pretty?? hmm plastic surgery or weight loss may be your help.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, she does suck, especially her show which usually resolves around her dumb opinion, how great she thinks she is and what she did.

My sister watches it all the time and I want to die.

GO TO HELL TYRA BANKS.

There's no arguing that she's beautiful, but that doesn't speak to her personality. From what I've seen on ANTM, she should stick to being seen and not heard.

If you think Tyra sucks, then you and your readers will love this.

I think Tyra Banks really sucks, because she invited someone to her show, and humiliate them.
She is too far if compare to Oprah, Oprah is very professional when it comes to talk-show, she brought up her guests, and appreciate them, seldom can you hear her criticize them.

Anonymous said...

Tyra, I think you are black as a Tyre, no wonder your parents name yo as Tyra....coz u r such an asshole. I know u don't really like white, that's why u keeps on focusing on racism in your show. So stop that brown color hair, just let yur afro hair grow, stop using light tone foundation, and just use BLACK foundation cause that suits u better as a black since u say u r proud to be black, now get real Tyra@Tyre, BE BLACK U ASSHOLE GHETTO!!!

no doubt that she's hot,but she is one of the biggest retards I have ever seen.Stick to modeling dumb ass,leave the talk shows to people who are actually funny and interesting.She's a crappy actress too!!!

OBVIOUSLY you know nothing about how Tyra does not support total airbrushing and Photoshopped pictures. it is ok for a Photo to be a little airbrushed here and there but not all the way. its Part of the industry, she really has no control over it. You need to Calm down!

I saw her exactly for who she was many seasons ago when she had on a so-called girl from the "ghetto." The contestant was put on under the alleged guise of Tyra Banks giving a poor girl from the black underclass a "chance". But this young woman was clearly exploited from day one as the "socially awkward fish out of water" contestant to be laughed at or pitied. It seemed as if the show spent a great amount of effort putting her in situations to play up the angle of a poor black person not "fitting in" and feeling alienated (for example, in one episode, the contestants were sent to a very high class restaurant; much of this segment emphasized how awkward she was in ordering menu items).

This in itself wasn't enough to raise a red flag regarding Tyra Banks. What did raise a flag for me was the shocking amount of empathy and disrespect Banks and her staff showed towards the contestant as she became more and more alienated and homesick. On previous seasons, whenever there was a contestant feeling lonely or alienated, Banks would always give that girl a "pep talk" to "empower her" and make her feel better. Her plight would also be shown in a very sypathetic light.

But in this case, the more alienated and lacking in confidence this particular contestant displayed, the less Banks reached out to her, even as she began showing signs of homesickness and depression. The camera would record her struggles with all the detachedness of a news report.

As if that were bad enough, Banks didn't seem to be offended or even upset that on such an "empowering show", her assistants would constantly make mocking comments about this contestant based on her background (like calling her a ghetto alien during a photo shoot).

The clincher in this whole thing was when Tyra literally shrieked with rage at this contestant when she was finally eliminated. And why? Because after weeks of being demoralized, the girl didn't express enough heartbreak and even grief at being let go and expressed too much relief at finally being able to return home after weeks of homesickness. Yes, that's right-- the "kind and empowering" Banks flew into a violent rage that the so-called "serf" wasn't expressing enough "gratitude" that she'd been given such an "opportunity" (read: not groveling to be kept or sobbing her eyes out).

When I watched Tyra Banks degrade this contestant on national television, this is when it became all too clear that she had picked her to be a "charity case" with no intention of letting her compete for the modeling contract. She had expected to just let the girl on the show for a few weeks and then eliminate her as soon as her "angle" ran out, with the added expectation that she would sob her eyes out when eliminated and thank her for the opportunity of being on the program.

When the contestant didn't behave the way she expected, her ego was bruised and all hell broke loose. Not only did the contestant's lack of groveling fail to make her look good as a "kind benefactor", it ruined one of the season's "angles" that she and the other producers had probably come up with that year.

Ever since that season happened, I have never watched America's Next Top Model and am waiting for the day when it gets canceled. Tyra Banks is a disgusting human being who's no less exploitative than some pervert Hollywood producer with a well-worn casting couch. Actually, she's worse than one, because at least the sleazy producer doesn't pretend to be doing his victims a favor as he's screwing them over both literally and figuratively.
and jealous of who???? stop saying we are jealous cause we recognize trash and stupidity. I love beautiful women, intelligent succesful women. Tyra is a selfish biggot bratty biatch.

Tyra Banks is so incredibly fake and self- absorbed. On ANTM whenever one of the girls asked her for advice, Tyra would go on and on about how SHE overcame that problem which would then lead into detailed description of HER rise to fame.
Not to mention that she does the exact same pose in every single one of her photos.
I hate her.
