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.

People like this should be kicked out of a black hawk in Iraq. They would change their tune very quickly. I can bet you he would be running up to a US Soldier crying "Help me, Help me!" You don't bad mouth the people who protect us.

Soulja Boy wouldn't even be able to rap if it wasn't for our soldiers. I'd like to have him come to me, a Vietnam War Vet, and tell that to my face. He's just another big mouthed spineless idiot.

**** Soulja Boy. P.O.S. You are no differnt than those ignorant ass people who believe you as a black man should be on a plantation you ass. This makes you look so fking retarded. You say fk the army troops but you make your money provided you have a country to rap in. You uneducated rat you deserve to be shot dead. You think people like to leave their families and friends to fight for natural resources so you can drive and fly? Thanks for inciting more fuel to a neverending bonfire of hatred. Say what you like but if you dont like this country take ur green and go in peace. Leave this country along with all your other P.O.S. Thank you to all our veterns past and present you are not living or dying in vein. I am a proud tax payer and support our defense budget so you can be safe while you fight for P.O.S like this guy.

Screw the military and most people in it. They are NOT protecting our freedom, No Army or Government has jeopardized our freedom since Pearl Harbor. Military people always get offended anytime someone recognizes their collective inability to GET A REAL JOB!

And what exactly did you expect from a no-talent jerk with a cute stage name who gets filthy rich by talking and pointing? How about changing his name to "Leetl weempy boy" to reflect his cowardice and hatred for his own country?

Looking for an apology? Grow up. First, stop listening to garbage, it is infecting your mind. Second, move on with your life. His words should have no more bearing on your life. Stop playing the victim of these thoughtless lyrics and start acting like a man. In sum (because I realize this post was too many words for the average American), both parties in this dispute are pathetic.

Everyone is paying attention to his idiotic statement about the troops, but no one is asking why are we still at war 10 years after 9/11? Why did we go to war in Iraq? Our brave men and women are serving honorably, but you are fooling yourselves by saying its to protect our freedoms. It's to make money for military contractors and you suckers are enabling them to use our military to achieve that goal. Real freedom scares you cause it means responsibility!

@dumpy who wrote, "You americans are pathetic, the hard on you get for your military is pathetic. What freedom are you fighting for? I'm pretty sure you guys have all the freedom in the world without invading countries for no reason!"

If you don't like Americans, why are you on a website that deals almost exclusively with American Entertainment?
