Tyra Banks knows her way around the cat walk, but she’s been kicked off the buses in Santa Monica. The print ad for her America’s Next Top Model TV show has been taken off the blue buses after complaints from locals. The ad, showing the models in bikinis, was deemed to be disrepectful to women. The new season of the show premiers tonight on the CW network. My favorite part of this story is the quote from CW spokesman Paul McGuire, who says in response to the complaints, “It’s a jungle out there in bus advertising.”
