Soulja Boy

RIPPED By Military Vet

A proud military veteran is demanding an apology from Soulja Boy -- after the rapper posted a video saying, "f**k the army troops."

Soulja ignited a wave of controversy this week over his new song, "Let's Be Real" -- which includes the lyrics:

"F**k the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man ...
... I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan."

TMZ spoke with Fred A. Flores -- a disabled Marine Veteran who is now a commissioner for the L.A. County Veteran’s Advisory Commission. Flores tells us, "It's a very offensive statement ... especially with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up."

Flores -- who has two children currently serving in the military -- calls Soulja "Ungrateful" ... adding, "He should apologize to ALL armed forces."

"[The rap] is very irresponsible," Flores stated ... "especially for a person who is an entertainer for the youth of our country."

Soulja Boy's rep refused to comment.

Didn't buy his ridiculous crap before- won't buy it now. Serving in Afghanistan now - we'd like him to come for a visit.

Damn, dawg, in one fell swoop just pissed off a few tens of thousands of people bigger, stronger, smarter, and with looooong memories. For what now, for what.

Many of these "rap" lyrics make no sense anyway. Flying through the green like Peter Pan? As I recall, Peter Pan was a boy who never grew up, perpetually an immature child. We have to do something to save our culture and society. Stop giving in to this modern garbage that some call "music." Find what has stood the test of time and introduce kids to some of it. They'll like it. Right now they have no chance.

Somebody needs to tell old Freddie that those wars you fight, are purportedly so that Americans can have freedoms. Sounds like old Freddie would like to tell people what their opinions should be, and what their art should say. That's not freedom, that's a dictatorship. I agree with him. The U.S.A. has been at war with someone or other for the past 100 years consequtively. Maybe, stop trying to tell people what they can and cannot do, and you might not have so many wars, that cost millions of dollars and thousands of lives. You fight in wars that are not even any of your business. Mind your own business.

I have never commented before, but felt compelled to after reading this. What a miserable piece of crap! Without our troops he wouldn't be able to be free and get rich off stupid ass songs like this! He's not even a good artist outside this lame excuse for a song! I will never listen to anything by him again and he owes the entire military an apology and pull the song out of circulation. Of course he refused to comment on the stry, becauset he is a chicken **** and can't take any responsibility for his actions!

That's not where the story ends. Check out his facebook. It's been blown up with death threats, name calling, taunting, and trolling. There are even pages dedicated to boycotting him, and/or killing him, because of the song. Being former military myself, I think he's a stupid mother******, and needs to apologize ASAP.

I think what he said was stupid but I think the reaction is equally stupid. Just ignore him FFS. The true headline is "Stupid Man Says Stupid Thing". Why are people surprised when that happens?
When he says "... I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan" he means doing what Interscope tells him to do for commercial purposes. The irony is lost on him.

Maybe he will claim it really isn't him and someone hijacked his video - oh wait, he already wore that lame excuse out for his racist twitter rants.
