(Newser) America’s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks responded—somewhat vaguely—to the weekend’s audition stampede but said she does not know what triggered the incident, CNN reports. “We are concerned by the events that occurred Saturday afternoon in the vicinity of the New York City casting call,” Banks said. “We appreciate the efforts of the NYPD and will assist them in any way possible in this matter.”
