Tyrese was kicked out of a Deleware radio station for what he says was because he took an on-air stance against liquor stores being located near schools.
Shortly after the incident, Tyrese hit up Twitter to break the news that the Progam Director PD, had issue with his opinion.
“just kicked out of a radio station frm a PD who had a problem w/ me speaking on liquor stores that are by elementary schools in Delaware,” Tyrese said. “In 17 years I hv NEVER been kicked out of a radio station.. Because I have a problem w/ liquor stores being across from elementary schools? I was also told that the PD made them ERASE my interview so that NO ONE could HEAR me SPEAK on the issue of the liqour stores near kids.”
However, KISS 101.7 Program Director Tony Quartarone said they kicked the R&B singer/actor out because they felt he disrespected the listeners by calling them ‘homies.’
“Tyrese was not kicked off the air for pointing out that liquor stores should not be located near schools … I totally agree with that. But … he proceeded to downgrade my audience by calling them ‘homies.’”
Tony went on to say that Tyrese was being condescending with his language, and then was asked to leave the building. He had made the decision that until Tyrese apologizes for his behavior and tweets, his music will not be played on KISS airwaves.
Tyrese shot back calling him a liar.
“The PD has been trying lies from that station.. None of the people at ur station like you.. And Delaware is gonna take good care of you..”
