RnB crooner [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tyrese[/lastfm] has hit the road to promote his new album. But things turned ugly when he expressed his personal views on something he saw on the way to the radio station in Delaware.
According to TMZ.com:
Tyrese claims he was WRONGLY kicked out of a radio station in Delaware yesterday — and it’s all because he TOOK A STAND against liquor stores that operate near elementary schools.
It all happened at WJKS KISS 101.7 in Delaware — when Tyrese, who was invited on the show to promote his album, made a PASSIONATE statement about how liquor stores SHOULD NOT be allowed near schools … after seeing one on his way to the station.
During his rant, Tyrese 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.”
But when the show went to commercial, Tyrese was asked to leave the building — and the owner of the radio station confirms to TMZ that it was because he felt Tyrese was “disrespecting” the Delaware community.
After the incident, Tyrese tweeted, “I just kicked out of a radio station frm a [program director] who had a problem w/ me speaking on liquor stores that are by elementary schools in Delaware.”
He later added, “If you don’t STAND for something.. You will damn near fall for Anything.”
Tyrese is my homie!! I get his point and I just feel like he blind sided that station with his views. But they could have handle that situation better than that. It’s obvious that the personality doing that interview didn’t know how to get Tyrese back on track.
