Soulja Boy

RIPPED By Military Vet

For Anti-Army Rap

9/5/2011 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

let's be real, soldiers are so dumb not to realize they are fighting a war based on obvious lies.
Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, Iraq didn't not have WMD nor were they trying to get it. and Bush and pals knew this.
yet the morons in uniform proudly go to kill millions based on obvious lies.
let's be real USA, you have massive problems. and this isn't the first time. this same evil has ruled you for over 50 years. Vietnam was based on lies too and you killed 2 million people there.
and there is much much more. 9/11 was an inside job for instance. so was JFK and Bobby. and MLK.

not to side with souljaboy but in this he is right

let me first say
my dad is a WW2 veteran
fought 3 years in Germany, France, Belgium
stayed after the war even as part of the liberation forces
volunteered to fight in Japan immediately but didn't have to go because of the dropping of the A bomb
now.....
this arrogant, ignorant, limited talent fool really must think that military are stupid- risking their lives for little money while he rake$ in the "green" and lives like a king..
ironic since he chose a purposely mispelled version of soldier boy for his "name"..which may I add is offensive and an insult to all the men and women around the world who really are soldiers
none - and I mean none - of these all these foul mouthed rich rappers wouldn't last 5 minutes in Afghanistan!
he and his attitude disgust me

Listen here you Sh*tbag!! Our military people have more talent that you will ever have. Now I know why I don't listen to your music. Music that isn't. Watch your back as you might get a bomb up your ass by someone in the miltary.That would send sweet music to my ears.

............

with rights come responsibilities
people seem to forget about that
and the miliatry fought to keep the country independent
were it not for the military who fought for the country's independence many moon ago there wouldn't be a country...never mind the opportunity to even write a constitution!
and the military ensures that nothing/nobody threatens or encroaches on our ability to enjoy our freedom
again I say
WITH RIGHTS COME RESPONSIBILITIES
and soulja boy is irresponsible.. among other things

Wait, why is this dude even on tmz????? I guess having "ONE HIT" makes you a celebrity. Let me remind you, his last album only sold 13,000 its first week. He's nobody.

Never thought I could still be surprised, but azzhole you certainly surprized me; how incredibly stupid and ignorant you have truly shown yourself to be. You may have a lot of money,but money can't buy class,....and you,you azzhole,are a classless s.o.b.

This fool shows the lack of character and intelligence of rap music in general. He is also a disgrace to the black race.
