Tyra Banks is sorry you’re not anorexic

The good folks at The CW have released a teaser trailer for the upcoming season of Who Wants To Die Of Malnutrition? America’s Next Top Model and oh would you look at that, it basically insults everyone who doesn’t have a body fat percentage in the negatives. Anyway, Tyra Banks is out and about making sure that she’s sooooo sorry or whatever.

In the ad, Banks was quoted as saying “There’s something about her I like,” and fellow host Jay Emmanuel jokes that she “will make…the rest of the cast eat Tic-Tacs and watercress for the rest of the season.”

“In an effort to create a fun and entertaining sneak peek of the upcoming cycle, ‘America’s Next Top Model’ released a trailer that was edited in way that misconstrued our overarching message,” Banks told People.

“As a leader in celebrating and promoting healthy body image, I must admit that I regrettably didn’t see this clip before it was released to the public, (with multiple Top Model departments, it’s just impossible to review everything) but on behalf of the Top Model team, these were not the intentions, and we truly apologize for any confusion, anger or disappointment it may have caused,” the statement continues.

Of course, it’s times like these we like to whip out the patented Popbytes bullshit-to-actual-human-speak translator. Let’s decipher this message, shall we?

“Our show is fucking ridiculous and everyone hates it, so we figured we might as well piss everyone off until they watch this piece of crap. As someone whose job it is to make women feel bad about themselves until they buy the shit I tell them to, I’d like to stress that if you don’t watch our show and pay out the ass for everything advertised during our time slot, you will be fat and no one will ever love you. ‘Kay thanks bye!”
