PSY Christmas Show Bombs Gangnam Style … 25% Less Viewers than 2011
Who could have seen this coming, but everyone … The 31st annual “Christmas in Washington” concert on TNT was a Gangnam style bomb. The “Christmas in Washington” concert drew 25% less viewers than the year before. How many people refused to watch the Christmas special because President Barack Obama insulted the US troops and their families by confirming he was going to attend after the news had been reported of rapper Psy’s anti-American and anti-military comments?
The 31st annual “Christmas in Washington” concert on TNT December 21 suffered a dramatic 25 percent loss in viewers from the previous year, according to Nielsen Media Research. The 2011 cablecast of “Christmas in Washington” drew 1.5 million viewers. The 2012 showing had only 1.136 million viewers.
The concert, traditionally attended by the President and his family, drew international attention over the scheduled appearance by Gangnam Style rapper PSY (given name Park Jae-sang) when it was revealed the South Korean entertainer had made highly inflammatory, anti-American performances the previous decade.
It would seem that many Americans did not accept Psy’s “I’ve been caught” apology that was hardly sincere. Years earlier, the South Korean rapper sang the following. Wow, who would have imagined that Americans would tune out?
Kill those f*cking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives Kill those f*cking Yankees who ordered them to torture Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers Kill them all slowly and painfully.
