ANTM Fights Bullying By Humiliating Contestants


For the first photo shoot, Tyra attempted to raise awareness about teen bullying by celebrating the attributes for which the contestants were teased (being a “giant,” “queer,” etc.). Later, the panel talked shit about the girls behind their backs.

And they literally congratulated themselves for their social awareness, when only moments before they had described one girl’s body as “gauche,” another as “hoochie…almost bordering on stale,” and of course mentioned different levels of “dreckitude.” Then Tyra, while giving her goodbye speech to the eliminated girl—whom editing suggested had an eating disorder—Tyra told her to eat some bread and butter.
