Tyra Banks causes a riot (Indirectly)

March 15th, 2009 // 53 Comments

An America’s Next Top Model audition went apeshit yesterday in Manhattan after a broken down car pulled up next to thousands of barricaded models prompting someone to yell “It’s a bomb!” The ladies, all under 5′ 7″ per this cycle’s guidelines, obviously panicked and made like they’d just been offered pizza, crushing everything in their path. NY Daily News reports:

By the time the model madness ended, six women were injured and two women and one man were busted for inciting a riot, authorities said.
“The girls were running like it was 9/11 part two,” said Jennifer Brown, 27, of Kensington, Brooklyn. “I feared for my life.”
“The metal barricade fell down,” said Kiara McCarthy, 19, of Levittown, L.I. “All of a sudden we heard this roar from behind us and we looked behind us and there’s a wave of people falling on top of us.”

After surviving an apparently anorexic midget stampede, little Kiara now has a new lease on life. But not really:

“I’m 5-foot-3. There’s no way I can make it into a model agency,” McCarthy said. “They would turn me away at the door. We had an opportunity and it was taken away from us.”

People almost died, including herself, and all she can think about is being on TV. I think we’ve found the new Miss America, folks – provided she grows a few inches. Hey, can’t have the other countries thinking we’re a nation of dwarves. That’s just crazy talk.
