Denzel: You know I didn’t want Will to feel that it was like I was bashing him for being gay. That wasn’t the issue or that I’m ashamed of him wearing heels or anything like that.

Tyra: Yes you were though, Denzel. You said if he wins, all your friends at home were going to say that “Oh you’re in some gay thing.”

Denzel: Yes, that’s what they would say. That’s not me saying that.

Tyra: Yeah, but you care, because you said it. You’re not saying, “Oh, there going to say it, but who cares, we here are going to be America’s Next Top Model.” You didn’t say it like that. Because if Will heard it like that, he would’ve been like. “Yeah man.” This is an industry that is predominantly female, so whenever you step into an industry that has predominantly a certain sex, you get the stereotype that you are gay. Be proud of this industry, and every single male model, gay, straight, heels, corsets, who gives a [bleep]. I want to take you back 50 years and imagine you overheard Will say, “I hope that Denzel guy doesn’t win because if a black guy wins, my friends at home are going to say I’m his [N-word] And the word that I mention now I did it for a shock factor for a reason.
