Tyrese's Radio Station Ejection

The Blow-by-Blow

9/28/2011 11:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyrese Gibson says the program director that kicked him out of a Delaware radio station yesterday was cursing and yelling behind the scenes -- all because the singer took a stand against liquor stores near schools.

Tyrese just called into TMZ to explain the whole situation -- it's pretty intense ... check out the audio.

I grew up in Delaware, and I agree with Tyrese! It's horrible. When I was in grade school they would bus the kids in the suburbs(me) into the inner city to go to school. My 5th grade year there was a liquor store on every corner around the school. Thank you for standing up Tyrese. You aren't downing Delaware, you're telling them to take some pride in their youth!!

Is this the neighbor kid from The Cosby Show? Or was he in a commercial on PBS or something? Why must we care what these D-LIST actors say or do? Good luck to you Tyrese, hopefully they will create a remake of the television show on the CW in which you can play J.J. "DYNOMITE"!

God forbid he try to make a positive point about a situation that should not be allowed. I have much respect for him for speaking the truth. And the TRUTH shall set you free.

The people in Delaware should boycott the radio station for kicking him out

That's pathetic. The radio owners are more concerned with a paycheck and not upsetting their profits promoting and advertising liquor advertisements on the radio.
God bless America. Has this what America has come to.
Thank y you TG for speaking on this. At least someone intelligent knows this is so WRONG.
Whatever happened to freedom of speech.?
And how it’s possible for liquors stores to be so close to schools.

'put the pressure on them homie, you know how to put pressure on dudes selling in your hood." sure sounds like a solicitation of violence to me.

As a Delaware native, I applaud Tyrese for his comments. Delawareans should boycott 101.7 Kiss Fm for kicking him out. This is the reason why people are either doing extremely well in Delaware, or extremely bad. There is truly a liquor store everywhere you turn and its not a good example for children. I think very highly of Tyrese and im ashamed this happened in my home state. Delaware Stand Up-Boycott that lame wannabe urban radio station. Also, if you get a chance read Tyrese's book, "Get out of your own way" then you will see what a fine example he is for young people to control their destiny, regardless of they way they were brought up.

Who are the idiots on the first page of comments calling him an F-list actor and saying he should go to the CW network and play JJ Dynamite (are you referencing the Black show Good Times from decades ago?)? Do you even know what this TMZ story is about, or did you see a Black face and decide you should just skip reading the story and post something negative and ignorant? He's been in two of the most popular movie franchises, Transformers and Fast & Furious.
