Free to Trample the Flag

Lil Wayne does a dance on Old Glory for a new music video! Lots of people are pissed he chose to disrespect the U.S. Flag ... while others think he's justified. Will the protest hit Weezy where it hurts most -- the wallet?

Plus, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's bundle of joy arrives right in the middle of her dad's promotional tour for his new album. It drops tomorrow ... should Kanye get back to work, or stay with Kim and the baby?

And, Chad Johnson gets ripped a new one by the judge who locked him up for the ass slap -- but then he catches a break, and seems uncharacteristically grateful. Has he really turned over a new leaf ... or is he just terrified of the judge?

Lil Wayne is a waste of air and a piece of crap. He's doing stuff like this to be in the news. I spent 24+yrs in the USAF so this little s%#$ can stomp on our flag. He should go try it in another country, on their flag.

The United States is the only country in the world where a no talent fool like Lil Wayne could have any kind of musical career. And he mocks all the men and women who have lost their lives defending all of our freedoms.

Its never OK to walk on the flagg or putt it on the ground. However he does have a point that

a lot is wrong in our country. he could have made the point without disrespect.
If hed do his research hed see we are loseing out rights more and more every day. Goggel fema camps. NEW WORLD ORDER is already on us.
He could do a lot of good for awareness but he is just rapping for his own attion not trying to do any thing meaningful or good.
God Bless the USA

LET'S STOP THE PROFITEERING AND SHAMELESS, NARCISSTIC SELF PROMOTION of the Ks now!!!!

I heard the baby's name is KLEMENTINE STAR. Spread the word so these cows don't profit any further!!!

IF I am wrong, then so be it. But, if I am right and the word spreads, then I am glad they didn't profit off the baby

Whatever. All you people OUTRAGED by the flag hitting the floor and someone dancing on it should be more concerned about the inequities that still very much exist in this country. Crazy really, people get all up in arms about a piece of cloth, but don't give a **** about their neighbors.

If anyone was unsure about Lil Wayne being a jerk, this should clinch the deal.
Anyway, I have little doubt that he is, but I'll defend to my death his freedom of speech.
No one's personal opinions or feelings should deny anyone their rights.
Even this morons.
