Won’t someone (besides Tyra) PLEASE think of the children?


Tyra Banks with children sends shivers down my spine.  I think it’s because she always seems a little off the rocker, so if she’s near any person or thing that requires special attention I’m not sure she should be left alone.  Also, she appears to have recently taken an increased interest in the young ones (see her stupid nursery rhyme segments before each judges’ panel on this cycle of America’s Next Top Model).

Furthering my fear was a recent episode of her talk show (she has so many shows on which she can scar the youth!) in which she interviews child stars of YouTube.  First she started off with the kid who is wacked out on drugs after visiting the oral surgeon, and, in a misguided attempt to provide a word of advice to parents, admonishes the audience NOT TO PURPOSEFULLY GIVE YOUR KID DRUGS JUST FOR YOUTUBE FAME (and fortune; the kids’ parents are whoring him out on t-shirts now too).  I’m not naive enough to think that this couldn’t happen, but I feel like thinking it’s so likely that you need to tell a national audience this reveals more about your train of thought than the audience’s.

Then she brought out the little girl who made a book about kittens inspired by KITTENS! After telling the little girl that kittens frighten Tyra because “they’re so smart and like raaaaaaaaaaaaaar!” and possibly destroying her childhood wonder, Tyra then decides the girl should not be interested in saying cute funny things about kittens, but about Tyra!  So she shows her a slideshow of Tyra pictures and demands funny phrases on cue.

This is not how you treat children Tyra!  Most people don’t immediately assume everyone will want to drug their children for shits and giggles after seeing a random kid on YouTube recovering from surgery meds, and no one demands a child redirect their awe and wonder towards themselves because no one is as egotistical as you.

Love you lots sweetie, but please, if you care so much for the children suddenly, then do your part by leaving them to those more stable than yourself.

    Oh, Tyra. At least she didn’t try to give them vaseline.

    Oh, poor Kittens kid. Damn, I’m late–I thought Kittens was a recent thing. But that is so Tyra, to make the kid make up stuff about Tyra. Tyra, sorry, you can’t compete with kittens. NO ONE CAN.
