The station 105.1 The Bounce says it’s pulling West songs off the air after his unhinged tirade saying that slavery was a choice during a TMZ interview.
The hip-hop and R&B station’s radio personalities Shay Shay and BiGG sent a big message and made the announcement through Facebook Live.
“As of this moment, we will #MuteKanye on the Morning Bounce and we will not play any of Kanye West’s music, music that he’s featured on, music that he raps on, none of his throwbacks. We are banning Kanye West’s music from this radio station,” BiGG said.
“Why can’t we make a statement? In the small fish that we are, to say, I don’t want to hear Kanye right now. I don’t want to play his music; I don’t want to hear him on our show,” Shay Shay said.
Shay Shay is adamant that West should be silenced.
“I think it’s reckless and irresponsible to use your platform in this type of way,” she said, addressing Kanye. “I get that I’m a small fish in the ocean, but on my platform I feel like it’s important to make a statement.”
Many of their listeners they asked to call in and add to the conversation, favored muting West.
