Thirst Trap Alert: Tyra Banks Teases Sexy Selfie After Quitting Twitter
Tyra Banks may be taking a break from Twitter, but she's making her presence on Instagram known.
One day after OK! reported the Dancing with the Stars host's account on the social media platform was taken down without notice, the brunette babe took to her Instagram page to show off her good looks, posting a sultry selfie smizing at the camera.
"Smizing for you," Banks captioned her bare-faced snap that showed her glowing skin and messy hair that adorned her face. The supermodel's loyal followers couldn't help but gush over her natural looks in the rare photo posted to her page.
"YOU Are so stunning 😍😍," one admirer wrote, as a second added: "slay Queen," and a third chimed in, "I’ve learned all my beauty life hacks from. Thank you 🙏 ❤️."
The TV personality's sexy snap comes in the wake of her coming under fire after fans accused her of being the reason Disney moved Dancing with the Stars from ABC to Disney+ next season, a decision producers announced on Friday, April 8.
Banks replaced longtime DWTS hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews in 2020 ahead of Season 29.
At the time of the shocking announcement, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke gushed over Banks joining the dance competition family, sharing in a statement: "Tyra is an award-winning multihyphenate whose fierce female prowess and influence across many industries have made an indelible mark. Her fresh take on America’s favorite dancing competition will surely bring more than a ‘smize’ to fans everywhere."
Despite hopes that Banks would swoop in and add some spice to the beloved dancing show, her early on-air hiccups and behind-the-scenes behavior seemed to have put a wrench in those plans. Now, the former Sports Illustrated model's time on DWTS may be coming to an end already.
Senior executives are hoping to land "an Oscar, Emmy or Grammy winning star, who will make headlines on and off screen," as OK! learned, after Banks' several blunders. An insider also spilled Banks is a "nightmare" to work with due to her “wild demands” on set and "disrespectful" behavior to the crew.
Meanwhile, Banks has also been taking the heat as of late for her America's Next Top Model series, which has been heavily criticized since it aired on Amazon Prime amid the pandemic.
In fact, a writer named Kate Taylor from Insider seemingly hinted her probe into claims about ANTM may have aided Banks' decision to deactivate her Twitter account.
Taylor recently released an exposé titled Tyra Banks wanted 'America's Next Top Model' to fix fashion. Now, some contestants say the show was 'psychological warfare, and wrote after noticing Banks' absence from the platform: "After I reached out for comment + fact check last week, Tyra Banks deleted her Twitter. (Could be unrelated! Who can say!)"
