Opie & Anthony Pester Tyra Banks With "Fatty Pig Fatty" Sign
February 6, 2007


An Opie & Anthony "Pest Out West"  sends
a message to
Tyra Banks.

Regular listeners of XM Satellite Radio & CBS Radio personalities Opie & Anthony know that the duo have long been critics of Tyra Banks, calling the diva out for portraying a self-centered attitude during her daytime talk show. Most recently, O&A have been mocking the "Tyra Is Fat" controversy, in which a one-piece swimsuit-clad Banks made an on-air speech in front of tabloid photos portraying her as fat, and telling her critics they can, "Kiss my fat ass."

Whether Banks was aware of Opie & Anthony's previous criticism is unknown. But you can bet she is now, thanks to a stunt by O&A P.O.W. (Pests Out West) "Jewish Monkey" who placed a sign near CBS Television City, home of The Tyra Banks Show studio. The sign stated "Tyra Banks is a Fatty Pig Fatty," an allusion to a recent O&A contest that offered $10 per pound for the fattest woman that would don a pig mask wearing only bra and panties in their studio.

The story is gaining legs and has been picked up by Hollywood gossip types, including Perez Hilton and VH1's Best Week Ever, which called the stunt "unnecessary" yet also admired it by stating, "Tyra needs to be drop kicked off her golden pedestal."

This was not the first attempt to get Banks' attention. East Coast Pest No Filter Paul recently held up a sign stating "Tyra Is A Big Fat Pig" during a live broadcast at SportsNet New York's street level studios.
