Women's rights advocates upset about morbid 'Top Model 8' shoot


By Christopher Rocchio, 03/26/2007 

One would assume that the runway wannabes competing on America's Next Top Model's eighth season could catch some flak for wearing fur.

But that's not the case, as instead women's rights advocates are reportedly upset about a photo shoot that aired during last Wednesday night's Top Model on The CW, which had the girls posing as corpses in crime scenes.

"Violence against women is such a reality in our society that I certainly don't need the entertainment industry making light of it and making entertainment out of it," Sonia Ossorio, president of the New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women, told the New York Daily News about the Top Model episode. 

Poses for the shoot depicted the girls having been murdered by various methods, such as being poisoned, electrocuted, stabbed, drowned, pushed down stairs, decapitated, and even having organs stolen.  

"It's supremely ironic, when it's a show geared toward women about women, and about glamour," Ossorio told the Daily News.

Both The CW and Top Model creator Tyra Banks did not comment on the shoot, according to the Daily News.
