Tyra Banks' Website, Social Media Mysteriously Go Black

Was she hacked? Is she making a social commentary on some tragedy in her personal life or an injustice in the world. Who knows for sure, but her fans are definitely paying attention.

On Sept. 22 the first steps of the blackout surfaced.

A blank Instagram was met with frantic fan responses ranging from, "What's going on!" to "She was hacked" and a completely ridiculous claim that, "Her mom died".

At virtually the same instant her Facebook, YouTube and Twitter accounts also posted all black profile images. Dun dun DUUUUNNNN!!!

A peek at her official site shows more black. The source code ominously has only 13 lines of code one being "body bgcolor="#080808".

A hacker being able to gain access to four or more separate social media logins and a website are improbable at best. That leaves two options, this is an inside job (take off your foil hat) or Tyra and her team are trying to say something without saying it. She did take down a Facebook post talking about a show called "Black-ish" recently.

Her last discernable status update was this photo promoting a new episode of "America's Next Top Model."

Any way you slice it, Ty-Ty's fans are a little freaked out and hoping to see more Smize, Tooch and Flawsome soon.

Apparently the only place to get your dose of Tyra is on ANTM. Detroiters can watch on CW50, Mondays and Fridays at 9 p.m.
