America's Next Top Model

Tyra Banks Honors Martin Luther King, Jr. (PHOTO)

Tyra Banks is getting deep on Twitter.

The former supermodel is known for tweeting sexy modeling pics and “flawsome” photos of her forehead, but she also has a pensive side. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the America's Next Top Model host tweeted this heartfelt message and photo today (January 21).

“He had a dream...and without it mine would have never came true.”

Tyra was the first African-American woman to grace the covers of GQ, Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition and the Victoria's Secret catalog. Now, she’s a modeling mogul — from ANTM and her stint on daytime TV to her upcoming movie with Lindsay Lohan.

We may shake our heads at Tyra’s booty tooch classes, Smize Yourself! app and Tookie talk, but there’s no denying this supermodel-turned-TV-personality is an impressive businesswoman who has made the most of her opportunities.

MLK would definitely be proud of Tyra’s success — heck, he might even smize for her.
