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?

You are a lying, s*** sucking coward of a dog.
Even when you pull such a disrespectful act in tromping on our flag.
You are a coward simply because you don't have the balls to stand up for what you did
***** too

Some people are so touchy.. If you have ever been lost in your rhymes, etc then you know what it is to be focused on just that. Sad how accidents can happen and although he may be looking down, who are you to say he "seen it"? Seriously, I freestyle and I know what it is to be lost in your music and not really know what's going on until after you are out of that zone. For those of you who don't know you should shut up and quit judging. You're just jealous because he has made it and you're still broke as fk more than likely living with your mother or on welfare. Leave the man alone!

I am actually surprised only 8% of the people believe him...in my 30 years of experience, I have learned that WAY more than 8% of the people are idiots.

I think it is pretty bad, that none of those people around him thought anything of the flag on the ground and him stepping on it. Do they even know that the US Flag isn't ever suppose to hit the ground?

The flag is not supposed to hit the ground in the first effing place. Another meaningless apology from another talentless hack who relies on controversy to sell his so called art!

Now I Really See Why Celebrities Hate TMZ, They Love To Misconstrue What A Lot Of Celebrities Say. This Is What Wayne Really Had To Say About It. (Aside From His Tweet.):

http://www.lilwaynehq.com/images/blog/lil-wayne-addresses-stepping-united-states-of-america-flag.jpg

It's Clear To See In The Video That He Doesn't Intentionally Step On The Flag To Sh!t On America, If You Actually Pay Attention To The Video (Which A Lot Of People Fail To Do) You Can See The Flag Dropping To Show The Hoods Of America. I Do Agree That The Flag Shouldn't Have Been So Close To Him. But That's Something You Wouldn't Have Even Seen In The Music Video. But Of Course Once You See The Headlines Post : "LIL WAYNE TRAMPLES AMERICAN FLAG", You Automatically Go Crazy & Just Say Whatever Everybody Else Is Saying Because You Have No Opinion Of Your Own!

If you look closely, The man holding up the flag lets go of it intentionally. It looks like it was staged which makes it even worse.
