Tyrese Removed From Radio Station Over Liquor Store Rant

Tyrese

Singer/actor Tyrese Gibson was ejected from a radio station in Delaware mid-interview on Tuesday after bosses objected to his comments about liquor stores near schools.

The Transformers star sat down for a chat about his latest album at WJKS KISS 101.7 in Delaware, and during the interview he made a passionate speech urging officials to ban liquor stores near schools after seeing one on his way to the station.

He told the DJ, “Get them cats out of here… selling alcohol right across from your kids school, homie – put the pressure on them homie… you know how to put pressure on dudes selling in your hood.”

However, his comments infuriated radio station bosses, who ejected him during the commercial break.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, Gibson writes, “I just (got) kicked out of a radio station frm (from) a (program director) who had a problem w/ (with) me speaking on liquor stores that are by elementary schools in Delaware… If you don’t stand for something… You will damn near fall for anything.”

The owner of the radio station confirmed the incident to TMZ.com and revealed he felt Gibson was “disrespecting” the Delaware community.
