Tyra Banks wore a fat suit in her disguise as an obese woman for her show
Curious to experience what it's like to be an obese person, Tyra Banks eagerly wore the fat suit to go undercover as a 350-pound woman. This segment is scheduled to be aired on Monday at "The Tyra Banks Show."
"It seemed like the last form of open discrimination that's OK, and I decided to put on a 350-pound suit myself and live that life for a day and see what happens," she said to an interview by AP Radio. "I started walking down the street and within 10 seconds, a trio of people looked at me, snickered, looked me right in my eye and started pointing and laughing in my face," she continued. "And I had no idea it was that blatant."
