Tyra Banks's Comments on Model's Tiny Waist Cause Controversy

      Now honestly I don't think that Tyra's comment on her waist was the big issue here. HELLO, what Miss J said was way worse. But just because she is Tyra Banks and famous and very successful thaey target her.
Read this if you have no idea what I am talking about:

"You have the smallest waist in the world ... look at this waist!" Tyra Banks exclaims in a promo for the new season of "America's Next Top Model," when presented with a new contestant with an unusually miniscule midsection. Now those comments are causing some critics to call Banks, known for being a champion of healthy body sizes, a big fat hypocrite. In the promo, which was clearly edited, Tyra's comments are followed by photo shoot director Jay Manual joking that the model would inspire "Top Model" judge J. Alexander (aka "Miss J") to "eat Tic Tacs and watercress for the rest of the season." To some who have seen Tyra stand up for all healthy bodies and discourage the use of the word "diet" on the show over the years, the promo seems hypocritical.

What do you think?
