HOT 97 Host Admonishes Unruly Summer Jam Fans

Laura Stylez asks: "What is wrong with you?"

The initial statement from HOT 97 about Sunday night’s Summer Jam disturbance was circumspect. It includes this passage:

… a small number of people created an unsafe environment, and for the safety of all guests, the New Jersey State Police were on scene to disperse the crowd…

Today, on the station’s airwaves, on-air personalities rightfully used much more urgent language to address the minority of MetLife Stadium attendees who spoiled it for others and prompted New Jersey State Police officers to show up in riot gear. From the AP report:

Laura Stylez of the HOT 97 morning show criticized those who threw bottles at police, and DJ Ebro Darden said Monday that fans shouldn’t have tried to jump the fence to get inside the venue.

“You cannot throw bottles at police,” Stylez said on air Monday. “What is wrong with you?”
