America's Next Top Model and the Horrifying Misuse of Meat

On Wednesday, March 12, 2008, on "America's Next Top Model," with Tyra Banks, the model's on this show were asked to have their photos taken wearing meat. Most of the models used the meat as accessories and one actually chose to wear meat as an undergarment. After viewing this for a few minutes, I was enraged at the disgusting use of meat - that was once a life.
Why did The CW Network, the show, Tyra Banks etc. feel that this would be something entertaining? It was completely and utterly horrifying. I felt so sorry for the animals that had to die for such... I don't even have words for this senseless, inhumane action.
As I searched The CW Network website, I could not locate an address or phone number or any other way of contacting them. While at the bottom of the web page, I noticed advertising for a new, "green" show coming on. How could this network, possibly have the nerve to air something about the environment, when they have so little affection for animals?
I would like either Tyra Banks or the producers of the show to make a public apology.. and do something pro-animal on their show.
