The Word: Topless protesters target Heidi Klum

The season finale of “Germany’s Next Top Model” was disrupted on Wednesday night, when two topless protesters stormed the stage, apparently with a message about the show’s host, Heidi Klum.

The protesters were quickly subdued and escorted out, but not before everyone got a good look at their bare torsos and the words “Heidi Horror Picture Show” scrawled thereupon, according to Us Weekly.

Heidi hasn’t publicly addressed the issue and the women themselves haven’t commented, so it’s not clear what they hoped to accomplish, or who their message was intended for. Of course, it was in English, so… us?

If this is viral marketing for a reboot of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” starring Heidi Klum, I find myself very onboard with that, as long as Tim Gunn comes along for the ride. No need to give him a role — just let him wince in the background at how over-the-top the costumes are.

This isn’t Heidi’s only current reality gig — she’s also judging “America’s Got Talent” this summer. Fellow judger-of-Americans Mel B says says she and Heidi are tight. “I’ve known her for a few years. So we get along like a house on fire.”

Their co-judge Howard Stern, however, hasn’t mellowed. “He’s completely inappropriate all the time,” Mel says. “It’s what he does. It’s Howard.”
