America just helped him get super rich. I'm sure he has learned to accept us.

The fact of the matter is, Americans need to get the fu*k over themselves already.


Our government doesnt always act savory in the face of our conduct overseas, and the dealings with other countries.


So what? Someone made a song years ago spitting anti-american rhetoric that we've all heard before from AMERICAN artists?


Oh no no....how dare ANYONE say these things about MERICA'




The truth is, we're going to make this a big deal because we're the USA. We strong-arm the entire world when we see fit, and fu*k what they think, because no one talks shit about us, but us, right?

That part is probably just a Korean colloquialism that is translated too literally though. The literal translation and the actual meaning are different. Remember that video literally translating Darko's reaction to some referees? Same thing.


You might call your 12 year old niece "little miss" in English and it's perfectly acceptable, but translate that to Chinese literally and you've just called her a prostitute. Just because the literal definition is the same does not mean the cultural connotation and colloquial use is the same.

So if Lil Wayne came out with a song where he advocated the murder of Korean women and children you would defend that too, right?

The double standard for America bashing is ridiculous. There are so many self-hating Americans these days it's quite sad really. People are so scared of being labeled a fat stupid American that they will go out of their way to hate their own country. You won't see this phenomenon anywhere else in the world.

Did anyone read his apology?

Quote:
ďAs a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States 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 I featured on in question from eight years ago Ė 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 antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time. While Iím grateful for the freedom to express one's self, Iíve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and Iím deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.

I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months Ė including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them- and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology. While itís important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music, I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that thru music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology."

That's an apology! Other celebrities can take note here.
