Gangnam Style PSY reportedly used to rap about killing Americans,issued apology. According to a new report from Hollywood Life, it’s reported that mega popular Gangnam Style artist PSY used to rap about killing Americans back in the day over some sort of protest that went down in his native South Korean homeland.
Apparently, in 2004, a Korean missionary was captured by Islamists in Iraq. The captors demanded South Korea not send additional troops to help America during the war in Iraq. When Seoul did not comply, the missionary was killed, and several Korean artists came together for an anti-American protest.
Psy was one of them,and his lyrics went like this: “Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives. Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture. Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers. Kill them all slowly and painfully.” So,wow! That’s pretty intense.
However, Psy has recently issued an apology statement,saying, “As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. The song in question,from eight years ago, was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time.
While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused anyone by those words.” Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
