Image Credit: The CWTyra Banks and America’s Next Top Model have taken some heat in the last few days after a promo for cycle 15 showed Tyra and the judges gushing over contestant Ann’s incredibly small waist. Banks posted a statement today apologizing for the commercial, writing in part:

Do I wish Banks would take a harder stance against bodysnarking, and say she’d stop using a vocabulary of “flaws” to describe people’s bodies? Sure. (Remember in the petite season when she kept praising the girls for looking taller? Yeah.) As long-time Top Model devotee and regular Tyra snarker, it’s hard for me to admit this, but… this is still a pretty damn good apology.

What do you think PopWatchers? Does this make you more or less likely to watch the new season?
