Psy, Gentleman

Apparently, not everyone is a fan of PSY's latest music video.

Although the South Korean rapper's latest hit "Gentleman" has officially become a YouTube sensation—surpassing 100 million views in less than a week to beat the world record—the viral video has since been banned by one broadcaster in PSY's home country for its vandalism theme.

But don't feel bad if you have a tough time spotting the vandalism in question—it's in the opening...where PSY kicks a "No Parking" traffic cone. 

On Thursday, state-funded channel KBS said the scene does not comply with the public broadcasting standards because PSY is seen defacing public property, The Huffington Post reports. Two spokesmen—who spoke anonymously—also reportedly said KBS has banned other videos for similar reasons in the past.

This isn't the first time the rapper has come under fire for his music. He issued an apology back in December after an anti-American protest song he recorded nearly a decade ago came to light. 

PSY originally shot to super stardom with his viral hit, "Gangham Style," which fetched a record-breaking 1.5 billion views on YouTube.
