How Tyra Banks plans to fight ‘oppression’ in the fashion and beauty industries

Banks went on to insist beauty comes in all different forms and she no longer wants unrealistic standards to make people “feel like crap about themselves.”

She said: “Beauty is all shapes and sizes. All colors and genders. Young and old. Tall and short. Thin and thick. Real beauty lives in the land of and. Yeah, I said it.

“And while you may spend the rest of your life trying to convince people otherwise, you will never succeed.”

“Every single day, I will continue to fight your oppression that makes people feel like crap about themselves. Oh, get ready ’cause it’s payback time.”

The former “America’s Next Top Model” host also urged fans to post their own videos “shouting out to a person that hurt you.”

The video description asked for: “Whether the source of your pain comes from someone you’ve dated, or a job, or a parent, now’s the time to let it out like never before. #TheUpRiXing has your back.”

Banks announced her plans for ModelLand last year, which will reportedly be a multilevel space featuring shops, restaurants, interactive entertainment and more.
