Long before Korean star PSY got America to dance “Gangnam Style,” he had a different rap: Urging the torture and murder of Americans.
The portly performer, with his trademark sunglasses and garish suits, is riding an international wave of popularity thanks to his smash hit and accompanying video. He’s scheduled to perform the song, and presumably, his quirky dance moves at the “Christmas in Washington” concert Dec. 21 with President Obama in attendance. But one hopes he won’t dip into his archives when he puts together the presidential playlist.
“Kill those f---ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives,” PSY rapped on a South Korean band’s 2004 song, “Dear Americans.”
And more vile verses followed:
“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.”
