PSY apologizes for viral anti-American lyrics

Their hero hates them.. lol Is this the end of "Gangnam Style" mania?

Korean pop star PSY -- who rose to fame through his YouTube record-breaking video "Gangnam Style" -- apologized Friday for anti-American lyrics he rapped back in 2004.

That performance resurfaced on CNN's iReport and then circulated widely online. It included lyrics calling for the death of American troops serving in Iraq, not long after news of the brutal slaying of a South Korean hostage by Iraqi insurgents -- an incident which sparked anti-American sentiment in South Korea.

In his apology, PSY said his performance had been emotionally charged and was a response to events in the war in Iraq.

"I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world," he said

    • @planesailing I think he/she meant "masses" because the mass in USA are idiots, so its better to cover all as to not leave out someone and then their feelings get hurt for being left out.. there are only a handful of people whom really don't fall in the idiot category, only a few. lol

    • @txdot That's not actually how that term is used. Masses is used to refer to the different people that form society. USA is actually a very intellectual place, you just need to know where to look.

      You don't make a song for the masses. That's the incorrect way of using that word. You make a song for the mainstream.

  • OK, so if someone calls for the death of American soldiers, then that's OK and that person is not against America....WTF..... wrong...the American soldiers are following orders to be in a war.....yes there are some bad ones in the bunch. No one has a sense of Patriotism anymore.

      Patriotism have become synonymous with killing children with possible hostile intent, or the support of it.

      Fuck the USA!

    • @ObamaCare_4_All Patriotism = killing children. What does that mean, in your mind? "Patriotism have become synonymous with killing children with possible hostile intent, or the support of it." That sounds like you might need some psychiatric assistance. but agree with "fuck the USA"

      I talk about the blind support for your young kids in Iraq and Afghanistan.
      Being a real patriot means defending the values of a nation.
      The United States of America are not any safer by fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan.

      Excample: Thank you for fighting for my freedom.
      How can any sane American say that to someone fighting in your current wars.

      The United States of America have become what you fought against in WWII.

      It's so sad...and dangerous for you.

      I petty you all, sad dumb fuck More..

      Just because an evil isn't directed at you, doesn't mean you should never say anything about it.

      The "evil" would refer to the wars being waged in Iraq and Afghanistan and the horrible tactics our government has resorted to to fight. The torture and killing we're doing now is doing nothing more than giving people a reason to turn towards terror.

  • I understand lots of folks think about the Korean people the same way.
    Change the lyrics so instead of yankee you use the "G**K" word and see what kind of tantrum gets pitched.
    I personally thank PSY for showing the world just who he is, who Korea is and since PSY is performing at the POTUS House in America amongst all those murderous Yankees, who Barack Hussein Obama is.
    Singing about killing Yankees when your just a l'il fat phuc is kinda stupid anyway as is gangnam style anything.
