EL PASO - Many El Pasoans are upset by what a local DJ tweeted about using military discounts.
On Saturday, DJ Johnny Kage tweeted, "Cashn in on some savings at the mall..all the cashiers ask if I'm Military which I'm not..I say I am and I save! Lol #winning."
One person responded asking "So what country in the middle east have you occupied and put your life on the line for this country and the military discount?"
Kage defended his original tweet, "It was a joke. Like a store is really gonna do that. Come on now. Learn to take a joke."
Newschannel 9 received an email calling for a boycott of the radio station 104.3 until DJ Johnny Kage is removed from his position.
