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'm sorry, but this is a publicity stunt. Lil Wayne, you are a talentless piece of **** in my opinion who makes money off of stirring up **** and creating controversy. Somewhere, Tupac and Biggie are rolling in their graves because of idiots like you. What do you know about tyranny or slavery? Not a God damn thing. Nor do you actually care. You're a rich, talentless piece of ghetto ****. I won't say you deserve to die, because I don;t wish that upon anyone, but you do not deserve to be famous. And keep it real... you knew the flag was there... you were just trying to look like a badass... but you're not. You look like an idiot.

I am ashamed of any race that thinks for one moment that this is ok. I mean he should get jail time it is against the law to desecrate the Flag. That is not part of Freedom of anything. I do not buy his lie that he didn't know clearly he did. I don't care if your red, black, white or yellow if you do this and think it is ok. GET OUT OF THE USA !!!!

BTW this is not racist if you mess with the flag out of disrespect to it then you can go by by! MY Family is full of vets yes Native American and White and I have inter racial cousins we at no time are racist but this is sad. You idiots who are saying it is ok look in the mirror and ask yourself where would you be at if it wasn't for that Freedom Flag.

Also, if he wanted to trample on it for effect, I think he would have done a much better job, he barely even gets his feet on it!

TMZ... You should really post the video before the poll... People vote before they see the evidence... your writing is much more incriminating than the videotape.... There is enough material in Hollywood that you shouldn't have to drum it up with oversights like this one

This is silly. It is all about perception, you believe whatever your mind tells you that you are seeing, and if someone says it often enough you start believing it too. Making a big deal out of nothing. Guilty until proven innocent in the eyes of the public.

the truth    

I think it is insane how people still pretend like this country is so fair. Yeah LIL WAYNE is rich. But so many people get treated like trash for race purposes.

You can tell that it was meant as a back drop and he WAS NOT intentionally "trampling" on the flag. For one, the mic is so close to where the flag dropped that there is no where else to step and for two he's not talking **** and then stomping on it like someone do if they meant to do it on purpose.
I understand that it is disrespectful but he didn't do it out of hatred or anything else. His backdrop people(the person on the ladder) dropped it to close to the microphone and he had nowhere to perform.

This WAS intentional. In the begining of the video look at the ladder there is a person on top relasing the flag and there is a prson under, holding the flag and making sure the piece doesnt fall on him!

Oh come on people, it fell accidentally while he was performing, what exactly do you want him to do? Stop the music to bend down and pick it up? Come on... It clearly wasn't intended to rile people up, he was busy singing. Stop getting worked up on every little thing.... There's entirely too much stress and obviously too much time on people's hands if they can sit around and pick at people for the stupidest sh*t.
