I never understood this fad, but I just came across this. Now I have a reason for wanting to punch the guy in the dick. K-pop star PSY once advocated ‘slowly and painfully’ killing US soldiers | Twitchy
He has the most-watched YouTube video ever (more than 900 million views), and is set to perform (edited for content) at the annual “Christmas in Washington” concert later this month. |
Eight years ago, however, the “Gangnam Style” K-pop singer advocated the murder and torture of US military personnel and their family members.
HAPS, an English-language Korean magazine, says news of PSY’s anti-American views have long been known in Korea, but only recently surfaced in the US.
The lyrics of the anti-US song performed live by PSY and several other popular Korean singers in 2004 (shortly after the US invaded Iraq) were first translated into English two months ago on CNN’s iReport:
싸이 rap :
이라크 포로를 고문해 댄 씨발양년놈들과
고문 하라고 시킨 개 씨발 양년놈들에
딸래미 애미 며느리 애비 코쟁이 모두 죽여
아주 천천히 죽여 고통스럽게 죽여
Kill those ****ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
Kill those ****ing Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers
Kill them all slowly and painfully
PSY’s anti-American views weren’t discussed when the K-Pop star appeared on Ellen.
Exit question: Will anyone in the mainstream media ask PSY if he still supports killing US soldiers and their family members?
Hat tip: Jon.
Correction: Twitchy originally stated that PSY was set to perform at the White House. (edited for content) , but the concert venue is the National Building Museum. This post has been updated to reflect that information.
