Tyra Banks is catching heat for allegedly bullying Black women on "America's Next Top Model." Accusations flew after video clips from the modeling competition series surfaced recently.
In one video, Banks tells a Black model she had bad skin and she should let makeup be her friend.
"You have to put on more makeup as a woman of color. Our skin reflects the light."
She also told another woman she was wrong for suggesting that the ANTM photographer didn't choose her best shots.
Banks was also criticized last year for bullying a Black model and telling her to close the gap in her teeth [Watch that video here.
Twitter users dragged Banks and accused her of being colorist.
One user wrote: "Tyra Banks is lucky that her show didn't exist during the peak of social media bc it would've made the way she got cooked last year seem like a walk in the park."
Another user tweeted, "With every video from ANTM that resurfaces, I realize more and more that Tyra Banks absolutely bullied the women on there, especially the Black women."
The same user added:
"She's vile, and saying that sucks bc I looked up to her so much when I was younger. I thought she was genuinely rooting for these women, that she wanted them to be amazing. All she did was perpetuate the very same bullying that she was supposedly against in that industry."
And a third user wrote: "She must've been through it because she's clearly passing on the trauma."

Mehgan James shared her views on cheating men in a recent episode of AllBlk's new reality TV series "Notorious Women."
The 31-year-old Houston native previously dumped former NBA player Kedrick Brown for cheating on her.
But her views on cheating men have evolved over the years. She isn't playing games when it comes to her peace of mind. Mehgan says her man can cheat on her -- as long he does it respectfully.
"Cheating respectfully, to me, is cheating where I don't find out," she said.
"Cheating respectfully because, believe it or not, your man is cheating," she said. "I believe that a guy can love you and cheat on you, I'm sorry. Guys are built different than us."
Mehgan added that her man should maintain control over his side pieces, use condoms, and don't bring home another woman's baby.
"I'll only leave my man for three [reasons]," the former "Bad Girls Club" star said. "You bring me home an STD, you have a baby on me, or if you gay."
"There's levels to cheating," said Stormey Ramdhane, who has two sons with Suge Knight. "Don't buy the b**** nothing, don't make her feel special. She can't be more special than me."
"How could you have this whole man list with all these requirements ... and then be okay with him cheating on you," said La’Britney, an R&B singer and former Love & Hip-Hop cast member.

This once popular TV family has fallen out of favor with the viewing public. The children are grown and not so adorable anymore. Negotiations are underway to bring them back, but does anyone care?
A certain reality TV family is in contract negotiations for a four year renewal to their contracts (with options each year). You guys think of this show as sort of herpes that never goes away. But I think it is kind of cute but I don't always recap it. I hate half hour shows. Mommy dearest makes six figures per episode plus a small executive producer check for a half hour show! The network loves the show because it is so cheap to make. The problem is that the cute little kids are all growing up and becoming a bit obnoxious and not that cute anymore.
The attorney repping the family is the best in the business. The negotiations are expected to continue for a few weeks. It is a complete renegotiation. No one in the family has an actual job, so they are desperate to keep the show on the air for as long as possible.

Jen Shah and her assistant Stuart Smith were arrested on federal fraud charges.
Shah and Smith are cast members on Bravo's "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City."
The reality TV personality is accused of running a nationwide telemarketing and money laundering scheme.
A 10-page indictment accuses Shah and Smith of defrauding victims older than age 55.
The victims were charged thousands of dollars to receive unspecified services which "provided little to no value to the victims."
Shah, 47, struggled to explain what she did for a living on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
"My background is in direct response marketing for about twenty years," she said. "Our company does advertising. We have a platform that helps people acquire customers."
She claimed to be the founder and owner of JAX Fashion, Shah Beauty and The Real Shah Lashes. But prosecutors say Shah's businesses are nonexistent.
Shah appeared in federal court on Tuesday. She was released and ordered to turn over her passport.
She is not allowed to leave Utah without the judge's approval. Shah also is not allowed to participate in telemarketing schemes.
She is set to appear in a federal court in Manhattan via CCTV on Wednesday.
Shah is the wife of University of Utah football coach Sharrieff Shah. They share two grown sons together.
A former cast member of "Bad Girls Club" was killed in a shooting incident in Virginia Beach on March 26.
Deshayla 'Shay' Harris, 29, was one of two people killed at the scene, including the gunman.
Harris was struck by a stray bullet during one shooting incident in Virginia Beach, where she died at the scene.
Police say two other shootings took place around the same time in the area, although the incidents don't appear to be connected.
Shortly before her murder, Harris shared an Instagram video which appeared to have been filmed at a bar.
"I'm only doing s**t that's gonna make me elevate!" she said in what turned out to be her final post.
The Virginia native rose to fame following her appearance on the 17th and final season of Bad Girls Club in 2017, when she earned the nickname "Firecracker Fashionista."
She was remembered on social media by former cast member Keyaira 'Key’ Hamilton: "You didn't deserve this man. Rest easy Babygirl... watch over me."
Police say there are no arrests, and the shooting incident is still under investigation.

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member Mary Cosby says she and husband Robert Cosby Sr. sleep in separate bedrooms.
She made the revelation during part 2 of the RHOSLC reunion show on Wednesday.
The 48-year-old mom-of-one became emotional while discussing her unconventional marriage to her late grandmother's husband -- her step-grandfather.
Mary explained her "arranged" marriage, saying her inheritance was dependent on her marrying her step-grandfather.
"My grandmother told me, for herself, that she wanted me to take her place," Mary said. "Basically, Robert Sr. was 20 years younger than my grandmother. My grandmother felt like she robbed his youth. So she said, 'If something ever happens, I want you to marry one of my girls, because I know that they will be loyal to you and treat you good like you treated me.'"
In an earlier episode, Mary said she delayed consummating their marriage by telling Robert she was still menstruating -- for an entire month.
Eventually the couple welcomed a son, their only child named Robert Jr.
When asked during the reunion if she is "in love" with her husband, Mary replied, "I absolutely think I am."
But she shared that they sleep in separate beds and they have not had sex in the "last few years."
Fighting back tears, Mary said, "We're happy. You can't say or do anything to take happiness away from me. It's hard to get. If you can find that in a man, it doesn't matter where he came from."
"Marriages are hard, they're horrible, they can be a nightmare," she continued. "I have a beautiful one."
"The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" has been renewed for a second season.
NeNe Leakes is a former reality TV star without a team. Her agents, publicists and attorneys reportedly grew tired of her shenanigans and washed their hands of her.
NeNe took to Twitter on Monday morning to complain that there's a conspiracy against her.
In a series of tweets, NeNe claimed she was dropped by her manager, Steven Grossman and her former attorney, Darrell Miller of Fox Rothschild LLP.
"You can't turn on your teammate and get away with this @stevengrossman #DarrellMiller #Foxrothschild suppression, retaliation, discrimination, unequal pay, devaluation against black women is real, it's painful and it hurts. I will fight for all women rights PS: FIX IT."
According to Lovebscott.com, NeNe is no longer represented by Grossman at Untitled Entertainment, or repped by ICM, and she has parted ways with lawyer, Miller.
NeNe, 53, is also no longer being represented by Jonesworks PR.
As you know, NeNe was unceremoniously fired by Bravo TV for insubordination on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
According to B. Scott, Bravo execs grew tired of NeNe's sometimes violent behavior. NeNe has accused producer Andy Cohen of racism.
Production on "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" has been suspended amid a sexual abuse investigation.
Rapper and actor Tip "T.I." Harris, 40, and his wife, Tameka 'Tiny' Harris, 45, who star in the hit reality TV series, have denied "appalling allegations" of drugging, abuse and sex trafficking made by dozens of women.
The couple threatened possible legal action against Sabrina Peterson, a former friend who accused the rapper of putting a gun to her head.
Celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom announced she is representing one of the accusers.
But VH-1 bosses aren't waiting for any legal action before shutting down the set.
The family-themed reality TV show featuring T.I. and Tiny and their extended family was in the middle of its fourth season when the cameras stopped rolling this week.
"We are aware of the allegations, and while they are not connected to our show, we have reached out to T.I. and Tameka Harris, as well as local and state officials," an MTV Entertainment spokesperson said in a statement to Deadline.
"Given the serious nature of the allegations, we have decided to suspend production in order to gather more information."
