When asked by Page Six how Tyson's copycat new show "Make Me a Supermodel" compares to (original) "America's Next Top Model," he went off on this strange tirade that has way too much to do with Naomi Campbell:
"Tyra? Are you joking? I’m the only male supermodel there is, the only one who can make a supermodel. Do you think Tyra can just call up Naomi Campbell and ask her to teach these kids how to walk the runway? Please! You know Tyra and Naomi aren’t cool like that right? And we’re in New York, Tyra's in L.A. Nothing’s going on in L.A. [My models] will go on go-sees, be doing what it takes where the action is, in New York. Please!"
Tyra, would you like to respond?
"KISS MY FAT ASS!!!!"
