WJKS Kiss 101.7 in Delaware has some explaining to do. The station allegedly decided to remove actor Tyrese from their building after he spoke on the air about the liquor stores in urban neighborhoods. Tyrese had appeared on the station to promote his new album, and then spoke about how liquor stores should not be near schools.
“Get them cats out of here,” he said to the DJ. “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.”
That’s the point when the station manager allegedly came to tell Tyrese to leave the building.
Tyrese was “disrespecting” the Delaware community.
