Dismiss what’s upsetting to us (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

oust

Here is my best explanation:

'dismiss' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'upsetting to us' is the subsidiary indication.

'upsetting' is an anagram indicator.

'to'+'us'='tous'

'tous' is an anagram of 'oust'.

'whats' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for oust that I've seen before include "Drive out, eject from office", "Supplant", "Give marching orders", "responsible for expulsions", "Overthrow", "Show the door to", "Force from office", "Expel - eject", "Drive out, expel" and "Turn out".)
