Banks   had said that as a child she was called an ugly  duckling because of the way people made fun of   her appearance the model Tyra Banks reveals she  was bullied in school because she was so thin she   said when I was 11 years old I grew three inches  and lost 30 pounds in three months so I went from   being a mean bully cute little chubby little girl  to shooting up weighing 98 pounds and just looking   sick and frail end quote Tyra was pretty cruel to  people despise her cheerful cheery image on the   magazines when she was a teen in Middle School do  you recall those nasty girls who used to pick on   you and spread rumors about you you couldn't stand  those groups of popular girls that all clicked up   together unfortunately Tyra Banks was one of them  and she was actually the leader of the group Kyra   even devised a method for voting off members of  her group she didn't like anymore so yeah Karma   did come back for her when she later became the  victim of bullying herself and she now has since   has her regrets she believes that bullying is a  result of people feeling bad about themselves and   deriving power from targeting vulnerable people  Tyra said she has had to end friendships because   of the negative influence some people brought to  her life Banks began her modeling career at age   15 while still a high school student and Angeles  after being turned down by four other modeling   agencies she finally got signed by La models when  she was 16. she made the switch to Elite Model   Management she relocated to Milan after being  offered a modeling contract in Europe she was able   to book 25 shows during her debut Runway season  at the 1991 Paris Fashion Week Banks has been   featured in editorials for numerous Publications  including

Gabbana scada Tommy Hilfiger Ralph Lauren   Houston h m XOXO Swatch Versace Christian Lacroix  Victoria's Secret got milk Pepsi and Nike so she   has lived okay she has lived now as far as  her personal life in the 2010s banks dated   Norwegian photographer Eric ASLA and in January  of 2016 a couple welcomed the sun into the world   via surrogate now let's get into the Americans  Next Top Model Scandal let's talk about how the   models were reportedly paid only forty dollars a  day while Tyra Banks scored a huge paycheck and   they even had to pay for food allegedly out of  their own Pockets several white contestants in   cycle 4 which aired in 2005 posed as black woman  while wearing black face which was makeup that   was much darker than their natural skin tones  to be made up as a white woman it's a little   mind-blowing it just goes to show It ultimately  defines by who you are not by this outside   Christina Regal not Paul we are actually  going to switch your ethnicities so being transformed into a proud African woman  for me is definitely an exciting experience it   has since been noted by many that this was a  blatant case of blackface and was therefore   extremely offensive and disrespectful and are  now deleted tweet addressing the controversy   in May 2020 Bank said and I quote been seeing  the post about the insensitivity of some path   America's Next Top Model moments and I  agree with you looking back those are   some really off choices I appreciate your  hana's feedback and I am sending so much   love and virtual hugs and quote and then this  one which pretty much triggered many people was   a week after learning that her best friend  had died of an overdose a contestant named   Jaya was told she would be modeling in a shoot  with a death team Ewing is not having too much it's really messed up but I just don't  want to be here so Johan these are your   seven girls today they're beautiful  right well they all look too alive having trouble getting a good  shot was criticized for letting   her feelings overwhelm her during the  photo shoot Caitlyn you okay honey Josh yeah I want you to even take all your  nerves and take all of that and turn it into   just like anger every bit of might in your  body I want to see it like they were mad at   her for being overwhelmed with the shoot her  best friend literally just died and they were   gonna have this girl do this whole photo shoot  based on death she was crying and losing it and   guess what they told her use this moment you  know Channel your whole anger and fear and it   has been reported that models face some tough  and borderline abusive regulations and one of   the most unpleasant accusations revealed that  the contestants are at times completely banned   from eating and from exiting their rooms Gianna  Turner reveals that she and her fellow model   contestants were not permitted to eat and  were completely restricted to their rooms   they weren't able to exit their rooms at all and  in fact she claims security guards would post it   outside of their doors to enforce these cruel  regulations several contestants have spoken out   about how they were made to film for 20 hours  straight without break and how they were not   given any kind of sustenance or opportunity to  voice their dissatisfaction with the conditions   during that time all of life's Necessities were  denied to them many of the models have compared   their experience to that of being imprisoned why  did you choose the cowboy hat it's more on the   simple side compared to the other hats you have  this intensity to prove your sort of african-ness   and I think that sometimes it's overbearing it's  just too much it's sort of a layer on top of a   layer just because we had to talk about you  know afrocentricity before and it's kind of   misunderstood I'm all about like expressing  yourself and your culture but it's still done   in a fashion way you want your outfit to be  look at me and this outfit is look over there   Yaya takes a beautiful picture effortlessly she's  bringing something from inside but the other thing   that Yaya brings from inside that is so ugly is  that superiority condescending attitude yeah yeah   this picture is stunning I mean this is amazing  but what's not amazing is your appearance think   a little bit more glamor as opposed to Natural  comment below what your thoughts was but it seems   like it wasn't that glamorous but here's where I  kind of will not defend her have an alternative   understanding of it is that during those ages  there was a lot of problematic things happening   on TV not saying that because so many other people  were being problematic that it excuses Tyra Banks   problematic Behavior but a lot of us watch these  shows and saw nothing wrong with it I was one who   literally like this Arrow you could really call  the woke era because everyone is now woken up to   a lot of the things that hour happening that was  like hmm this shouldn't have happened even movies   like The Notebook we all ate it up right but then  now as adults we watch it and we're like yo those   that was pretty toxic and watching America's  Next Top Model as a teen I saw nothing wrong   with it I didn't you know we just thought that's  the industry that's just how you have to be and so   did many adults who watched it with us my adult  on you watched it with other adult friends they   saw nothing wrong with it either until now of  course with social media and then you're not more   aware and you see how toxic it is and you kind of  forgive yourself for the toxicity you exude and   agreeing with some of these things there's toxic  things we did in our past growing up toxic ways   we used to talk or ways we used to even dress  or do our makeup how to do it in a way that was   stereotypical to certain people right imagine if  you become a celebrity in a middle school picture   of you pops up wearing you know appropriating  I guess Asian culture wearing certain things or   whatever when you were just a teen and you did not  know and it was just what was cool because on TV   on America's Next Top Model you saw those models  dress up like that getting blackface through these   things it was just we didn't know better and  as a society now that we all know better we're   holding people to a standard that even back then  we wouldn't have fit either where I don't know if   you guys can understand what I'm saying like we  still can hold Tyra accountable you know while   also understanding that during those times she  probably didn't even see where she was from you   know what I mean and even as adults there's uh  the culture changes in society there's a lot   of things in society a hundred years ago that  culturally would not fly right now but there's   a lot of things that we do now in that society  that would not fly but people change mentalities   ideologies and understanding of things change  so I do like to give these celebrities Grace   when things are like from years ago 20 plus years  ago or 10 years ago pop-up that were like come on   guys the culture it has changed so much let's give  them some Grace and kind to understand that okay   we can kind of forgive Tyra a little bit right  right don't throw rocks at me I'm not like you   know a super Tyra fan I'm really not but I I  do kind of I want to give her a little Grace   and I think this whole cancel culture exposure  culture revisiting things culture is good in the   sense that it we avoid problematic things in the  future I also do think we are a little bit OD with   it right now let's quickly get into this whole  Naomi skin as far as Naomi goes I I am doing a   video on Naomi Campbell next which will be updated  revised with some new things in there okay but the   dispute started when Banks claimed Campbell  who she had formally looked up to as a black   woman seeking to get into the modeling business  have been unfriendly to her when she initially   entered the field and I quote this is what Tyra  said I got to Paris and it was very difficult   she told people in 2019. I did really well really  fast but then the industry was saying oh look out   Naomi Campbell Here Comes Tyra Banks so Naomi  Campbell sit your butt down it wasn't fair to   Naomi but her response was then she took a long  pause to this day I'm very scared of her said Tyra   Banks I was going home that night crying my eyes  out because the woman I was looking up to seemed   like she just didn't want me to be there Banks  told the Wall Street Journal in 2019 allegedly   referring to Naomi and was doing everything in  her power to make me go away things added during   an episode of the Tyra Banks Show in 2005 Banks  invited Campbell to resolve their issues I was confrontation an entire Bank show Tyra accused  Naomi of saying you'll never be me and we were   doing that fashion show backstage and you came  up to me right when I was about to walk out and   you said something it's something like you'll  never be me you don't ever think that you'll   be me and I said that and I'm not someone to go  and give myself away and say that to anybody I've   never said that in my life so but if that's what  you remember I accept that but it's not doesn't   sound like me to people that would know me and  I must say before I continue I'm gonna take a   friend Naomi here a little bit not describing  what Tyra went to probably there was things   behind the scenes you never know but Naomi Naomi  pretty much got along with all the other models   in the industry was really really close with them  and they didn't really have those things to say   about her yes she had her nature but we're going  to get into all of that in the video that I'm   doing for her next I I don't know if Naomi would  have said some of the stuff for real either and   a lot of people do see that because of what Tyra  Banks did to Corinne Stephens and don't worry I'll   be working on a video for Corinne Stephens in  the future but because of what she did to Karen   Stefan's on her show talk show kind of like shamed  her and brought her on the show because she almost   had this Vendetta against her because Karen  stefans allegedly was a groupie with Tyra's   man and then she had her on there and shamed her  and kind of like used her show to basically on a   larger platform bully her but when she went public  with her story as a hip-hop arm charm she revealed   a lot more than skin the result was Confessions of  a video victim so do you think that you wrote this   book because of Revenge out of Revenge no see  revenge is something that happens when people   are miserable and upset and miserable and upset  about this book not learn about this book but   I have to disagree with you if there's no anger  why not it's just the truth a lot of women have   um unrealistic views of this part of the industry  you have a lot of young girls who want to at a   very early age just be video girls and they think  that that's modeling I have to explain and that's   not modeling and I've never been a model that's  not what it is and that's not how it happens   they're actually changing their minds about what  they thought the industry was like I wish that   I had you know people around me I wish I had a  family base a lot of women do have and they have   a family and they have friends and people who  care and they're educated better than I was but   many women and young girls aren't as educated as  we should be I feel that people expect me to be   ashamed and all my life I've been expected to be  ashamed of who I am and I'm not and I think that   it bothers a lot of people that I'm not ashamed  I admire the fact that you're not ashamed I think   what bothers me is that I think you are a very  smart woman you're very articulate and I think   you do know exactly what you did and I want you  to be honest so here and be honest with me well   you know what I just wrote the book I didn't  hide names and places and dates to protect   people this isn't a book about protection it's  a book about honesty and confessions both on my   side and hopefully on theirs Karen Stephens thank  you for being here and thank you for being honest   you've dying in thought aren't you haven't been  the hardest on you I've seen your interviews   there's been people that are super duper duper  hard on you maybe this was actually a walk in   the party I just wasn't in a mood for it today  people thought that that's what Tyra was doing   to Naomi let me put you on my platform and kind  of like expose you as this person and was going   in on her but don't you think some of the things  are like blowing up a little bit when I would be   the president like but this didn't happen  we didn't have a fight on the runway this   I mean it really was blown up by the before no  most definitely it was definitely blown up and   perpetuated this photographer was called or this  magazine was called and was telling to not use   me so do you have I think that photographers  record do you have anything I have some close   people with big names that I definitely will  not tell their names today because they kicked   my butt Tyra wasn't talking to her like someone I  was ever scared of her and it felt like Tyra did   overly speak about this and waited till 2019 to  speak about it I understand having a platform but   it was kind of like I got you back I don't know if  you guys understand what I'm saying but then again   and defensive Tyra if you were allegedly bullied  by this Mega superstar that you looked up to say   I look up to like Beyonce or something always  praising Beyonce oh my goodness Beyonce and then   I want to sing and I get in the industry and  Beyonce is just cruel to me and tries to bring   me down and I'm this younger person who just like  always was listening to her songs If eventually I   blow up and I have a bigger platform and things  like that and I get the opportunity to speak up   would you not speak up about how Beyonce treated  you so cruelly behind the scenes like hey guys I   know y'all love her and all but she was a horrible  person to me okay and if you had the opportunity   to get her back on your show me I'm just not that  petty I wouldn't do it I'm I don't know I'm just   not that petty I worked on myself too much over  the years the Korean probably five years ago or   two years ago would have done that so can we  give Tyra some Grace for that also at the end   of their chat on air banks remarked that it was  a lovely day that she had at last found peace   with Campbell despite being pitted against one  another Campbell said to Alan and 2013 that the   supermodels found common ground because of their  similar experiences oh however their dispute was   reignited in 2016 when Campbell shared an article  where she called Banks the real mean girl end   quote the things article concluded with the woe is  me Tyra narrative has definitely worn off we don't   want to reignite the Rivalry but at least now it  makes sense why in their face off Naomi just sat   there smiling looking cold-hearted dodging all the  accusations Tyra made end quote it is unclear what   prompted Campbell to share the article about  Tyra but Tyra Banks once endured an unpleasant   lie detector test on her own talk show the model  blatantly denied being jealous of Oprah Winfrey   but the lie detector saw that she was lying it  was an embarrassing moment for her and people even   used that incident to be like what makes us think  that she's just not envious period She did used to   be a mean girl in it so what makes you think that  and I do think because Naomi Campbell went through   it so much in the media because of her depression  in the industry being alone and like I said we're   going to get into all of that by the time Tyra  came out in 2019 Naomi was already healing and   already leaving that life behind her you know what  I mean and so it was like Tyra brought that up and   like reignited all of these bad press that came  from Naomi almost would have seemed mean if she   defended herself does that make sense what I'm  saying it's like if someone bring out allegations   where you were already seen as quote unquote a  diva or a meme girl and now you're denying it   vehemently and doing all of that and defending  yourself imagine if Naomi came no Tyra was the   Mean Girl people would have just came down  Naomi Campbell's neck so in a sense she just   had to okay whatever and Let It Go but now that  the truth is being shown about Tyra it's kind of   like making everybody question hey Naomi now can  kind of defend herself and I hope Naomi can in   the future speak about it because Naomi did go and  do a similar show to America's Next Top Model and   in it she was a lot nicer to the girl she was  actually very helpful and didn't have them do   extreme makeovers and stuff like that at like the  toxic nature of America's Next Top Model was not   present in that show from what we can see she was  actually helpful this is all I have to say about   Tyra she was a lot and I loved me sometime where  I grew up on Tyra but yeah things lately have   kind of okay but let's give her some Grace I do  believe that given a second chance there's a lot   of things she wouldn't do now and everyone who's  worked on the show that and I want to speak out   um past judges Etc I'm like listen you didn't say  nothing then if you felt that uncomfortable you   should have quit but the check was nice okay  the check was nice so you didn't say anything   and now it says dog pile on timer for clown so  I don't necessarily agree with that either and   it does seem like everyone is now dog piling on  her all at once and maybe it's karma for all of   the things that cheated in the past or maybe  it's just people are waking up and we can have   people we look up to in the industry while still  holding them accountable and making sure certain   things don't happen if you like the music you're  listening to in the background the link is in the   description support my brother don't forget  to like comment and subscribe share with a   friend and subscribe for to for the next video  which is Naomi Campbell that one will be really   really good I love Naomi Campbell so tune  in for that until next time I love you guys foreign
