PSY’s Anti-American Lyrics Lead To Calls For Obama Performance Cancellation
“Gangnam Style” artist PSY did a previous song with anti-American lyrics, leading critics to ask that his upcoming performance for President Obama be axed.
In 2004, Psy rapped on a South Korean metal band’s song, “Dear American,” at a protest concert, The Washington Post reported.
“Kill those f—ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives,” he said.
“Kill those f—ing Yankees who ordered them to torture.”
“Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers.”
“Kill them all slowly and painfully.”
Psy and several performers were protesting the execution of a Korean missionary who had been captured by Islamists demanding that South Korea not aid the U.S. in the war.
Two years earlier, after a pair of Korean schoolgirls were mowed down by a U.S.-operated armored vehicle, Psy again expressed vitriol toward America. Onstage, he smashed a plastic model of a U.S. tank into pieces as the crowd cheered, The Korea Herald reported.
