Tyra Banks stands up for fatties

February 1st, 2007 // 441 Comments

On today’s episode of The Tyra Banks Show, Tyra Banks puts on the bathing suit everybody’s been calling her fat over. Then she goes ape shit and starts raging on anybody who’s ever ridiculed somebody over their weight. In an attempt to fish for some viewers, the clip cuts off at the end of her rant telling the viewer to tune in to find out what she says. And not that you couldn’t have guessed, but the part that was cut off was: “Kiss my fat ass.”

The worst part of the clip is when she tries to hit her “sexy” poses. I’m pretty sure nobody is “used to seeing her like that.” You don’t get used to seeing horror. You could spend everyday with Brian Peppers and everytime you ran into him it’d still be: “Ahh! Jesus, Brian, put the bag back on.”

    And that doesn’t translate

    Just kidding – I’m an innocent ‘Block Head’ as the Quebeckers call us Canadians.

    In fact, i don’t believe in god, as most of quebecois. On the other hand, english canadians are strict catholics and protestants. But french are atheistic. Except for old people.

    I’ve been in western and Easter Canada (they speak english too in East.) But I don’t know why i should learn more.

    And i prefer pirates.

  4. Binky

    Well whatever – I prefer porn stars

  5. Binky

    I should have dinner – Salute !

  6. mia

    Yes, at least porn star are not skinny

  7. Me

    YAY!!!!

    Pirates is the correct answer. Leprechauns don’t really love gold, and if you know Steve, you know he HATES gold. LOL

  8. mia

    Do you know the pastafarian theory?

  9. Me

    no, tell me.

  10. mia

    It is an humoristic religion created in reaction against creationism. The god is a giant flying spaghetti monster who love pirates.

  11. Me

    LOL

    Hilarious

  12. Me

    HA HA HA HA HA

  13. mia

    You seem to like pirate…

  14. mia

    Well, goodnight, work is over.

  15. Me

    no, that’s just something that Andy Samberg said on Conan that I thought was HILARIOUS

    #415 Mia, before you go, here’s all I have to say: you might want to get someone to translate some posts to you. If your English isn’t good, fine, but really, think twice about accusing someone of writing things they haven’t. I did ask you nicely when you first posted to read what we were talking about and not to take julia’s word for things, and I think you didn’t understand me.

    I have NOT Canada- or Quebec-bashed julia, despite her insulting the US left, right and center since she made her disagreeable debut, nor discussed war or wished for terrorists to attack your buildings – on the contrary. (Julia seems to think this is a great idea because that way you’ll get new buildings. Do you still think the WTC was no big deal? I know your English is bad, but really, that’s a terrible thing to say. I wouldn’t wish a disaster like that on you.)

    Anything I’ve said to her, bar one exception, has been personal, because I prefer not to deal in the type of generalities she’s addicted to.

    (That exception was when she said “I surrender” – I said she must be French – and I defy anyone to pass up a chance like that. I did tell her to eat another poutine, but really, it was in the context of a junk food argument, so c’mon.
    And as for bashing the French, which you object to, here’s julia: “I feel superior to you!!! Mind you my dog is superior to you! Where do you think I am from? Fucking France or somethin?”

    Julia basically has the biggest case of liarrhea I’ve ever seen – that won’t translate for you, but it’s true regardless.

    Alors, passes une bonne nuit et fais des bons r

  17. Me

    I totally agree with you sexybitch. that Julia is an angry twat.

  18. sexybitch

    #418 Thanks, Me – btw, you make me laugh a lot.
    I think getting into an argument about which country weighs more is basically numb and futile, so I don’t. If she has such a desperate need to prove herself superior by dissing people here, well, good luck and bring some KY.
    I just appreciate the rich irony of her calling us cretins and misspelling it.
    In French.

    Did you mean REAL Canadians ?
    Binky: Well yes, The rest are Quebeckers – the French. They’ll never admit that are real ‘CANADIANS’ !
    So whatever Mia and her friend spew – Fine ! Get them to tell you they are proud Canadians.
    They are from Quebec !

  20. Binky

    (and what’s the record for hits at this dump? 4 to 5 hundred ? Let’s go !)

  21. Binky

    If you’re not a Canadian MIA (etc) deal with it – and see where you go…

  22. Binky

    Well Ok – Mia and her friend don’t admit to be Canadians.
    So – Don’t blame us for them kids !
    We come from Canada !!!!

  23. Binky

    ( Actually I don’t quite understand # 423 myself… but I’m sure we’ll figure it all out sometime )
    I suppose it’s a ‘Pure Laine’ versus the real people type thing that will become evident…
    Quebeckers here should identify themselves as Quebeckers – because Canadians are sick of them as well.
    Start your own country – LIKE YOU WANT TO DO – and then count your friends !!

  24. Binky

    Come back Juliabella and Mia and say you’re proud Canadians ! ?
    WHERE DID YOU GO ???
    Quit riding on reality’s coattails.
    Show up !
    Where were you Quebec people during WW 2 ?
    (Well Trudeau got a motorcycle and wore a Nazi helmet for coolness)
    Deal with it and leave us other people alone…

    “Zero respect for size zero lovers!”

    Tell me how this is different than saying ‘Zero respect for size 16 lovers!” or something of that nature. It’s just as bad. Why is it that everytime a debate starts about someone being overweight, people feel the need to trash slender people? Believe it or not, lots of girls are naturally VERY skinny and stay that way no matter what they eat. But for some reason there is this double standard…it’s okay to be hurtful toward a skinny person about their weight, but it’s just SO WRONG to do the same to a big person. Bullshit. Think about what you’re saying. And consider the fact that there are size zero girls out there who don’t kill themselves to be that size, and that there is nothing wrong with someone who prefers small girls, just as there is nothing wrong with someone who prefers bigger girls. I get that you’re probably mostly referring to pressure in Hollywood to be thin, but you made a blanket statement that would offend a lot of people.

    I’ve been lmao at all the bickering, but I’ve got to say that I agree with the whole Julia/Mia/same person from America theory.

    Did you notice that she speaks really bad English, and then does just fine like in post #265 “it was not addressed to you in the first place. so if one is trying to put someone back in their place, one needs to be included in the whole thing or remain fucking quiet ’til the end…” and then again in post #302 “xenophobics comments if you want… I juste thougt that you might not understand this word cause you know, according to your friends here, I’m smarter than you are. But if you want to argu on the definition of every single word written here, well, you go alone”

    In every other post she’s trying to be all ‘charmingly’ inept with the English language, then all of a sudden she types like any other American. Every child of the 1980′s should recognize the valley girl slang of “cause, you know”

    How about everyone on this thread defending fat people also defend CIGARETTE SMOKING?? Fat = Unhealthy. People who are underweight live longer by 25% (See scientist Ray Kurzweil blog et al). I’m athletic and at a perfect weight but I don’t get to shove a gallon of ice cream in my face while watching FAT TYRA explain why she’s a hero. I have to actually GET OFF THE COUCH to have a life.

  28. woodhorse

    #427 Mia/juliabella is one person who is a borderline – only a borderline would even want to pass as French – and she has a pocket size electronic translator next to her keyboard. They are pretty fast and not even expensive. I hope she spends the rest of her worthless life trying to convince her neighbors in Louisiana that she is French, but , whatever, DO IT SOMEWHERE ELSE. It is embarassing and I am tired of scrolling over your million words of excuses.

  29. mel

    okay seriously u talk about fuckin 10 pound paris all the time and think thats hot? yeah seriously tyras fuckin amazing. there was this fat wanna be chick in my math class talking about how fat tyra is. honestly 160 pounds does not a porker make u guys should be kissing her ass jesus fuckin christ

  31. flanattack

    @417….liarrhea! LOL

  32. Binky

    Wow my anti-Quebec rant was like a phone that won’t stop ringing. Mushi Mushi
    And I guess Mia is spelt M. I. A.
    I think I’ll start a blog on a thread back in 2005 and see if the Fish guy notices. It ought to save a bit of bandwidth.

  33. Me

    I agree liarrhea is some funny stuff

  34. tess

    I’m sorry, but if you make her stand next to Gisele Bundchen, she’s fat. Have you seen her Homer Simpson belly , her Bridget Jones tights, her Lindsay’s double-chin, her Britney’s chubby arms? Can’t believed that she was once labeled as a supermodel. My advice to you Tyra: slow down on the fried chicken. Otherwise you’r gonna look like a pre-diet Oprah.
    Truth hurts.

  35. nickyboy

    Tess your comparisons are spot on. Looking like a pre-diet Oprah appears to be Tyra’s secret wish, but she can’t stand the criticism, as seen from the intensity of her protests over being called fat. Tyra knows that she is getting fat, she enjoys her new freedom to eat whatever she wants and as much as she wants without hitting the gym, but she is upset because her secret desire are being exposed. I think her fat suit stunt was at least in part a form of wish fulfillment. Her love of fame and admiration are the only things keeping her from her deep desire to abandon the remaing traces of the discipline of her super modeling days to assume her dream of plus sized freedom.

  36. Truthseeker013

    TO paraphrase the Late, Great Godfather of Soul, “Let’s hit it and *not quit*!” And, for those who don’t want to, more time for me…

  37. Nikky Raney

    i love her!

  38. HOTTIEMARI

    FUCK ALL OF YALL WHO TALK SHIT ABOUT TYRA. SHE IS A SUCCESSFUL MODEL AND A VERY TALENTED WOMEN AND HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE IN HER LIFE THAN YALL LOW LIFE HATING MOTHER FUCKERS EVER WILL. YEA YOU MAY SAY SHE IS ANNOYING BUT PEOPLE KEEP WATCHING HER EVERY EPISODE SO KEEP THINKING SHES A WASTE BECAUSE SHES PROVING SHE ISN’T. HER LAST NAME IS BANKS AND IT SAYS IT ALL. YALL WANT HER TO BE FUCKN MOTHER TERESA AND EVEN IF SHE WAS YALL WOULD STILL TALK SHIT. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, SUCCESSFUL, AND CARING WOMEN THAT DESERVES EVERYTHING SHE HAS TODAY. SO GO FUCK YOURSELF!

  39. candice

    Ok..much as i LOV3 trya banks i dont think that she should be up there..sayin that. shes not even fat and even if she was shes only up there now becuz she knos how bein a lil chunky feels.But that still wouldnt help those that are still bigger then that. She done already had her chance at fame and ful filled her dreams as a model but c. mon if theres people out there that dont was be a plus size model and really want be a model trya goin up there saying a lil weight ok. shes lieing..so..dont say ur gonna be a model and be like that.
