PSY . . . the “Gangnam Style” guy . . . is apologizing for an anti-American song he performed in 2004, called Kill Those [effing] Yankees.”
He was protesting the U.S.’s involvement in Iraq, and the deaths of two Korean schoolgirls, who were accidentally hit and killed by a U.S. military vehicle.
The lyrics include the lines: Quote, “Kill those [effing] Yankees who ordered them to torture . . . kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers . . . kill them all slowly and painfully.”
He’s since softened his position on America . . . In a statement, Psy says, quote, “As a proud South Korean who was educated in the U.S. 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 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 anti-war 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 by those words.”
(Psy performed at last night’s taping of the “Christmas in Washington” special. As usual, PRESIDENT OBAMA and his family were there. The special will air on December 21st.)
