Oh dear. America's favorite Korean superstar, Park Jae-sang (aka Psy), may not be the lovable pop-rap muppet we thought he was.
According to reports, in his pre-meme days Psy participated in at least two anti-U.S. protest concerts, including a 2004 performance where he joined a group singalong of Korean band N.E.X.T.'s "Dear America," which goes something like this:
Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers
Kill them all slowly and painfully
Interestingly, a CNN iReporter wrote a post about this back in October, but nobody noticed, because who even looks at CNN iReports? Nobody at CNN, that's for sure.
Now people are calling for President Obama to cancel Psy's scheduled performance at this year's "Christmas in Washington" concert, and it's possible Americans have lost their taste for Gangnam Style for good.
The one upside: You won't have to watch your grandmother doing the horse dance at Christmas.

Taking a break from reporting on the War on Christmas (and ignoring the war in Syria), Bill O'Reilly decided to start a war on people feeling joy. He brought a psychiatrist in to explain Gangnam Style's popularity.
"The most popular music apparently is that without intelligible words." Is Keith Ablow saying the Korean language does not contain any intelligible words? Because if so, that's exactly why I hate French music too. Use some real words, Edith Piaf!
The only part of the Psy phenomenon a psychiatrist would have any insight into is his use of the silent "P." Asking a psychiatrist to explain Gangnam Style is like asking Bill O'Reilly to explain journalism. It's completely unrelated to their job.
