Tyra apologizes for ANTM Blackface Photoshoot

Makes sense that with the controversy facing French Vogue and V magazine, that even former model turned talk show host Tyra would feel the heat for these photos.

Even though she has in fact done a similar photoshoot using the same theme several seasons ago, it is only now that she has released a statement in reference to these photos saying ”I apologize. This was not my intent. It’s my number one passion in my life to stretch the definition of beauty. I listen to many heartbreaking stories of women who thought they would be happier if they looked different. I want every girl to appreciate the skin she’s in.”

WE think it is due to the controversy facing the aforementioned magazine that caused Tyra to apologize? But did she really mean it and was it necessary to be said?
