Beenie Man to Perform in Tampa

Jim Burroway

March 2nd, 2008

Tampa CBS affiliate WiLD 98.7 is sponsoring a “WiLD Splash” at the Ford Amphitheater on March 8. Ten hip-hop and dance hall artists are on the bill, including Jamaican Dance Hall recording artist Beenie Man whose lyrics advocate killing gays and lesbians. One lyric has him saying, “I’m dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays.” Apparently many others are dreaming of the same Jamaica.

CBS Radio, Budweiser, and MetroPCS Wireless need to know what kind of deadly “entertainment” they are sponsoring. People really are dying in Jamaica and here in this country, including in South Florida. It’s time for blatant calls for more violence to come to an end.

You can contact WiDL 98.7 Promotions, Anheuser-Busch (1-800-342-5283), and MetroPCS (Toll free 1-888-863-8768) and let them know what you think of this.
