Lil Wayne

FLAG TRAMPLE WAS AN ACCIDENT

I Didn't See It There

breaking news

0618_lil_wayne_flag_youtubeLil Wayne is lying through his diamond-encrusted teeth ... claiming he didn't INTENTIONALLY step on the American flag during a video shoot ... despite the fact he can be seen looking down on Old Glory several times during the performance.

Wayne just tweeted about his controversial video shoot for "God Bless Amerika" in New Orleans ... saying, "I didn't step on the flag on purpose! It's a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drop it's just there as I perform."

Translation -- I swear it was an accident ... please don't hate me.

Problem is ... during the video, you can see Wayne look down on the flag at several points in the shoot ... yet continues to trample all over the stars and stripes.

So ... you buyin' Weezy's explanation?

I bet the video was not suppose to show the flag on the ground! They just let it drop and then they show him with the people behind him. If it hadn't been for this video you would have never know he stepped on the flag!

The American Flag isnt supposed to touch the ground PERIOD! It's considered a disgrace. No amount of PR will ever make up for this in eyes of anyone in our military.

The flag is a cloth... Get the over it... White conservatives just want to condemn a digger... Nothing changes.
