I can think of at least two reasons why this would be:

First, people in other countries may well be very proud of their culture.  They may feel that their culture is worth preserving.  In such a case, they would not want US culture to come and overwhelm their own (destroying popular forms of music, for example).

Second, people in some areas may feel that US popular culture is inappropriate or immoral.  Many countries are much more conservative than we are, especially in terms of portraying sex and nudity in movies or in songs.  Such people might like to keep our popular culture out of their countries.
