Posted on 12/07/2012 2:40:41 PM PST by jimbo123
PSY- the pop singer behind the hit "Gangnam Style" -- says he "will forever be sorry" for performing a song in 2004 that called for the killing of "Yankees" ... and is begging for Americans to accept his apology.
The song in question was called, "Dear Americans" ... and featured the lyrics, "Kill those f*cking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives."
He continues, "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.
Now, PSY has released a statement explaining, "The song I featured on in question from eight years ago -- was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq

The guy is just another militant homosexual.
I don’t understand trends. The macarena is a joke but here we go again with this wierdo. 5 years on and he’ll be a joke as well.
To some he’s a joke now and always was.
No, if he was truly sorry, he would go hang himself.
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 I featured on in question from eight years ago was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time.
While Im grateful for the freedom to express one's self, Ive learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and Im deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.
I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them- and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology.
While its important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music, I try to give people a release, a reason to smile.
I have learned that thru music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology."
Speaking for myself only, I accept his apology. That was certainly a trying time and I can understand his anger at the deaths of the Korean schoolgirls in a war that really didn't involve his country...... And for what it's worth, that was the most succinct and heart felt apology I've ever read by anyone who has ever criticized this country. I commend him for doing so........
Sounds like psy is really struggling on the billboard charts to me.
..and let him make money in the US......hope he fades as fast as the pet rock. Take your gay prancing someplace else like France
We heard you the first time. Apology not accepted.
I’ve never heard this. Thanks!
He’s a terrible speciality act. Everytime I see him, I’m reminded of Tiny Tim. As you say, 5 years...
With all the great artists in America, this is the guy the White House invites.
I had a hunch it was the same guy whose video you linked to which has already been watched by 903 million people,for some reason. Ironically, probably because they thought it was just
“mindless fun”. But we’ve seen that there’s no such purity
and goodwill in this guy.....sounds like the thing from 8 years ago shows he was compete in the rap market, and not making it, so he changed course and turned off onto the brainless youtube video yellowbrickroad to fame. (A full 15 minutes of fame)
He didn’t write this! I don’t forgive this sorry POS because his “handlers” wrote this and told him to read it or the gravy train stops. Screw this POS!
“Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers ... Kill them all slowly and painfully.”
Sorry, but calling for killing of the innocent is hard to forgive.
If I were a performer who hates Obama, I'd put my politics behind me and perform at the drop of a hat.
The only people likely to get pissed off at me are the obsessive, compulsive folks who view the entire world thru their political window. They need to realize that there's more to this world than politics and they need to get a life........
Yeah he’s only “sorry” because he’s afraid he will lose money..Hey Psy, you hate this country so much but you have no problem taking our money..I never got into this whole “Gangnum style” craze..a guy hopping around like a horse, just never got it
maybe some patriot at the White House could take out the whole bunch with one of those belts the islamofascists use to kill each other ~ like who would know eh.
Debt to America!!!!!
I'm certainly glad you're speaking for yourself only.
As for me, I'll speak for the thousands of American lives lost in defense of Korea, so that this fat-assed, ignorant POS could come to American and get an education and have the opportunity to spew his vile crap.
A pox upon him and to hell with him.
And he did not write the apology, nor did it spring from his diseased mind.
His handlers saw visions of DOLLARS flying out of their and his pockets...that is the only reason an "apology" came out.
LOL! Hate makes you feel good doesn't it?.........
