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 ...

This waste of DNA rapper douchebag was on Jimmy Kimmel the other night. Can't believe I actually watched this human turd for about five minutes while Kimmel was interviewing now. Wish I had known about this American flag desecration on his video before I spent five minutes I'll never get back on this slime.

Why doesn't he just finish the job he attempted and failed and pound the sizzup, seize out and rid us all of the pathetic mess.

THE CROWD, ALLOWING HIM TO CONTINUE, HURT ME MORE THAN HIS DISRESPECT. tHAT FLAG AND WHAT IT REPRESENTS IS WHY HE IS WHERE HE IS TODAY. HEY LIL ****, TRY DOING THAT IN HALF THE COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLDAND WE'LL SEE WHERE YOUR DEAD, TORTURED BODY ENDS UP. JUST REMEMBER. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.

The crew should have put a tarp on the ground to catch the flag - and then pull it out of the way after it is dropped. This is known as a "kabuki drop" in the theatre - not that unusual a stunt. It is unfortunate that he stepped on the flag but he doesn't appear to be "trampling" it like the headline claims.

Bill Ayers was much more deliberate in his pose in Sept of 2001 on the NYT photo shoot.

So, let's call this unfortunate.

I don't know or care who Lil Wayne is - or thinks he is - he's making a low budget video and they didn't cover all the bases.

(I can't believe I just defended a rap artist in his work!?!?!)

Criticizing the government is one, thing but trampling on the flag and the memory of all who have died for our freedom is despicable. There really should be consequences. I won't be buying anymore of his albums that's for sure.

This is a serious crime to me, I do not play when my flag is involved.Its disrespectful to our country, our president, our military and me personally. I say suit his ass up send him to battle until he learn to stop whatever he's doing when the flag appears. Arrange for the flag to be properly remove than carry on. Just sick!!!!!!!

A whole bunch wrong with this...totally.
1) The Flag is to NEVER touch the ground. This is a must. Should not have been engineered that way, and if the flag were in danger of touching the ground, the video should have been stopped while the flag was protected.
2) You DON'T for any reason, for any how, step on the flag. Once again, you stop the video and FIX it.
3) Why do people buy his trash anyway???

He needs to be run out of this country. Don't comment back to me about "freedom of speech"...if you don't hold our flag sacred, go live somewhere else! Too many soldiers died for it!
