Psy

NYC Is a Drag

(When America Is PISSED)

12/8/2012 4:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

This is complete bull he talked about Americans like that then still is going to perform at the White House!If I was the president I would tell him to leave and be banned from the states,if any American said that about the troops and our own people they would be put in jail and marked as a terrorist,but this guy aka one hit wonder says it and o hes still performing at the White House and still on our land! I love my country and I support our troops! To me hes song is a threat and his apology is a joke!

In his apology, he mentioned about the freedom of speech. Well, he and many Koreans have forgot WHO fought hard and spilled blood to keep that "FREEDOM" for them. Korean War took place only some 60 years ago, not centuries. Something is missing in education in their country.

Why in the world would POTUS ask him not to come? It would be hypocritical. He himself was in a terrorist group. They're probably BFFs.

Mr Psy, I loved your Gangnam video, specially when you went to Univision to share with the hispanic public, but I must say after learning of your song blaming the US for the killings regardless of whom they were, I find it offensive that you have made your millions of DOLLARS with your newest video. I am appalled that you would refer to the US as you did and our arm forces, our children, fathers, spouses and families are sent for a purpose to keep the Democracy in the world. You have made an example of what freedom of expression means....but they're are limits!!!! I was ready to make your music part of the exercise routine but after this you can go back to where you came from. Your parents sent you to the US to get a better future and this is what you do with it....slap the americans on their faces! Many of out armed forces have died defending this magnificent privilege, now you apologize because you're making money? Well let's see what happens to your career once every american knows that after giving you an education you have committed the ultimate sin....... treason!!!.

It's sad. American people do not know what really happened to the two 14year old school girls. Those American soldiers who ran down the girls with military tank got acquitted and go free without any punishment. The court martial dropped the charges and completely ignored the case and that fuel the protests among south Korean people. Not just because girls were killed.

As an American, I have to say that America is still such a young country that needs to grow up just a bit. Like we have never made fun of other countries but are just fine taking profits from those same countries for American products. Quite a hypocrisy. We are not the only kid on the block. So he said some stupid things. Americans are far from innocent. But let's all sign a petition and whine about stuff instead of actually trying to bridge a gap. Such a christian thing to do to pass judgement and then praise about how divine it is to forgive others but maybe if WE are the ones asking for forgiveness. Crazy.
