Lil Wayne

Tramples

American Flag

Lil Wayne
trampled the American flag over the weekend ... and there's footage.

Weezy performed the stunt while shooting his new music video for "God Bless Amerika" in New Orleans.

During the shoot, Wayne begins rapping in front of a giant American flag ... which is released to the ground. After it's on the floor, Wayne continues to rap ... while stepping all over the stars and stripes.

The lyrics to Wayne's song are just as controversial ... "My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika."

So we gotta ask ...

He can spout whatever stupid nonsense he wants, but to trample on our symbol for freedom is inexcusable. That's right up there with all the illegal immigrants that were burning the American flags during some rally down south.

If he really loved/appreciated the freedom to spout his nonsense and make too much money from the sheeple, then he wouldn't even consider doing some scene like that

Rap music- is violence turned outward and it doesn't care about waiving a peace flag. Rather, its all about getting folks ready for the O_war which should happen soon. At some point, RKING will look like an apostle compared to what they will destroy to exact revenge.

Such a disrespect. I don't care because he's a complete idiot. After seeing that, he should pack up and get the heck out of here.

LOLz These racially charged replies are much worse than a talentless rapper accidentally walking on a flag. And you people wonder why people of color don't care about things like this or as "patriotic" as you.

@Mary The flag, like the Bible, is something that Americans CHOOSE to idolize. Choices do not have to automatically be respected and believe it or not, there are counter sides to them. Hence, Wayne's stance and in terms of the Bible, atheism. Just like you do not agree with his choice to stomp on the flag, he may not agree with your choice to idolize it. And it's just that simple. Just because you all choose to interpret the American flag as "all things good" does not mean that he does. When he sees that flag, he may see slavery, injustice, death, etc. You all have no right to attempt to dictate what the flag means to him or any other person out there. And that's simply that.

Oh the right wing nut jobs will have a field day with this. Is it disrespectful? Yes. Is it free speech? Yes. Is it unforgivable? No. We've got way more problem people in this country than those who step on the American flag.

I guess the people that love what lil' wayne did certainly do not know there american history and there for are idiots. these are the same people that would let america go down the tubes instead of protecting it. And are to scared to fight yet the can still mouth off on how much they are for burning , stomping the american flag in the ground.So go hide in hole or go help veterans who are here or coming home from the military.

He should be banned forever, any label that carries him should be picketed and no one should purchase any songs issued by the label.
