Psy

NYC Is a Drag

(When America Is PISSED)

No, this is not a picture from a gangster movie ... it's Korean rapper Psy puffing a cigarette in the back of his car -- right BEFORE watching his new-found American fame almost go up in smoke.

Psy looked cool as a cucumber out in NYC on Thursday ... just hours before footage unearthed, which showed the rapper at a concert back in 2004 singing "Kill those f-ing Yankees" and smashing toy American tanks.

Psy apologized as soon as the news broke, claiming the concert was years ago and his words were a reaction to the Iraq war.

Psy is scheduled to perform in front of President Obama on Sunday and petitions (which have since been pulled down) were reportedly circulating earlier today in an effort to ban the rapper from performing in front of POTUS.

The White House confirmed Sunday afternoon that Psy will perform as scheduled.

We're guessing he could use another cig right about now.

Just like Murdocch, Psy's another foreign-born creep making gobs of money off America. There's that sweet capitalisim rethuglicons love so much.

15 minutes? He's been famous in South Korea since 2000. Gangnam style wasn't even meant to go viral and only was only meant to be popular in Korea. Not his fault it explodes worldwide. But yeah what he said was ****ed up and I feel like he's only apologizing because he got caught.

Shocking that the petitions got pulled down. Obama and his circus act have yet to listen to what the people want. Why start now?

If people want to buy his music and attitude, fine ... BUT I really, REALLY think Obama's people should cancel his performance. Obama is the Commander in Chief and I think it should be clear that he will tolerate no disrespect to our fighting brothers and sisters.

PSY, people in the hood want to kill Koreans for $5.00 bread and for the monopoly in the fake hair market. So make your money, enjoy your freedom then get the eff out of my country!

The fact that Obama is allowing this communist piece of garbage perform in front of him shows where Barrack's loyalties are.

Of course he'll still perform in front of Odumbo, they now have something in common, they both hate the military.

What's annoying s this bastard lives free because the US. Maybe he should read a book about the Korean war.

The funny thing about the foreign criticism of the US is that no other country has put themselves on the line. Ni country stands for anything on the gobal stage If your country gets knocked down, the US is the first to extend its hand to pick you up. What happens when the US falls down? Nothing no hand is extended...no hand is needed. Why? Because we pick ourselves off the ground and get up on our own Our sense of greatness isn't ego. It's simply that we have a strong belief in ourselves and a desire to move forward..

I don't think it's a big deal. People say dumb crap all the time...especially Americans. This happened so long ago it shouldn't be news. How many celebs were opposed to the war? Countless.
