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?

What people dont understand is the actual flag falling and stepping on it isn't offensive ( its just cloth) . What's offensive is what that piece of cloth ( that's how they must view it ) represents people who died for them and for the ideas and wealth if this nation. He may feel because he's black that he doesn't fit the mold. Alot of black people in this country feel this resentment . However , they dont know their history and all the brave black men and women , as well as other races , that died for our freedom. I love his music , but this is disgraceful. Not going to boycott though
