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.

Lil Wayne...

  • I believe him
  • Liar
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?

He sure didn't care about stepping all over the flag or that it was on the ground!!! No one there did a single thing. All anyone cared about was the Singing, which I thought SUCKED, but that's another matter.

Come on, tell me you wouldn't notice that huge Flag dropping down? It was blocking the wind for one thing. I also don't get it was blocking the view from a large group of people behind that flag.

Did he lose all his senses??? I can tell when I step on a tiny pebble in my shoes. I would have easy known I was stepping all over something like that flag even if I had my eyes closed.

So lets break it down. You had a Huge Flag that was blocking the view of a large group of people!!! It was windy out, you can tell form the flag, but when it fell down he didn't notice anything differnt with the wind. He didn't noice anything down on the ground when he was clearly looking down time after time. he didn't notice when he was stepping all over the Flag. A blind person would notice!!! Is he really that Focus singing that lame song not to notice a single thing around him?

Even after all that, the person on the Latter and everyone else around just didn't do a single thing like Pick up the Flag!!! It would have taken 10 seconds or less. I mean come on!!!! What does that say about the people standing right there!?!?!?!

If it was by accident, why are there people behind the flag? Why are there sandbag weights on the line so it drops flat? Bullshi** if you ask me. Also look as the loser on the ladder lets go of the line. As a stagehand I see your "props" and call BS on you!

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 the flag is just acloth to someof you you can leave this country and take your families with you....a lot of young men and women have died preserving the freedom we Americans have that other countries don't have...one of those freedoms is the ability to get away with your punks ass remarks without someone smashing your face in.Typical of your species.

I honestly think from lil wayne your lucky he didnt roll up the flag and smoke it. But yea he seen the flag there, I think trampled is a bit much. He walked over the top of it. I would say that lil wayne has no idea about the flag being on the ground and that you arent supposed to walk on it. Honestly I think he has no idea what the flag stands for. Too him it was a 50$ flag and he was more concerned to finish his video. Do I think he was trying to piss off anyone. I believe this should be on the director of the video he draws up ideas and he told 2 people to drop it. Not wayne the video producer and it did seem like he had very little movement for the camera without really paying attention to hope over it. SO MY THOUGHT IS HE IS A RAPPER WHO HAS NO IDEA ABOUT WHAT THE FLAG STANDS FOR AND THE PRODUCER DROPED IT SO IT SOMEWHAT ON THE PRODUCER. NO WAY HE TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE MAD. MAD PEPS DONT BUY CD'S. DUMBER RAPPER SLIP UP.
