Strip Referral Tag of URL

I'm wanting to strip off any referral tags from Facebook URL.

Example:
https://www.facebook.com/LiquidWebInc?fref=ts
https://www.facebook.com/CocaColaUnitedStates?brand_redir=1

I'd want to strip off ?fref=ts using PHP before inserting into my database. ?fref=ts is not static and could be other text.  It appears it's all pre-fixed with a "?"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Turn the URL into an array, splitting it on the ? and use the first piece of the array.

Ended up doing with this:
$facebookURL = strtok($facebookURL, '?');
