President Barack Obama has been pictured shaking hands with a South Korean rapper who sang about wanting to kill American soldiers.

PSY, born Park Jae-sang, performed at a White House charity event on Sunday, despite a deeply controversial performance in 2004 that has shocked and outraged American fans.

The rapper showed off his signature dance moves while performing ‘Gangnam Style,’ which has the most watched YouTube video in history.

PSY owes his popularity to his Korean pop hit taking hold among tens of millions of American fans.

However, countless fans were offended by the lyrics from an anti-American protest song he sang that included the lines, ‘‘kill those f****** Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives…kill them all slowly and painfully.’

The rapper, 34, apologized after the anti-American protests made national news.

Calls for PSY to be removed from the lineup of the annual ‘Christmas in Washington’ benefit at the White House, which raises money for the Children’s National Medical Center.

Instead, he was personally greeted by the president on Sunday night.

‘Obama, Biden Cozy Up to Anti-American Rapper Psy,’ raged the conservative website Breitbart.com.

The story was tweeted dozens of times on Sunday night.

‘Do you remember when truly talented Americans entertained at WH? Now it’s the “Hate America First” trash- and Commies like Psy,’ Examiner.com columnist Harriet Baldwin tweeted.
