Dear PSY, Don't Dance with the Prime Minister of Malaysia

Dear our idol, PSY, we love your song and we love how Gangnam Style could rock the party, however, please do not come to Malaysia. [...] If you come to Malaysia, you will become the political tool and your performance will be politicized by Barisan Nasional. It is a political party which is seriously corrupted and always abuses the power to persecute the Malaysian. [...] Mr. PSY, you can definitely dance with anybody, including Mr. Ban Gimun ( the Secretary-General of the United Nations ) but never Mr. Najib Razak. As for the reason, he is the prime minister of Malaysia, the 4th most corrupted country in the world…

The official facebook page of Korean Pop Star PSY has been flooded with more than a thousand comments from Malaysian fans, including the one above, asking him not to attend the ruling party Barisan Nasional's Chinese New Year party in Penang, Malaysia.
