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?

Forget the fact he stepped on it, the flag should never be dropped to the ground in the first place

His excuse is a joke. It's as believable as him knowing who his father is.

The Stars and Stripes is powerful symbol for democracy and the free world. Countless people have died to protect that symbol. Disregarding the flag as just another piece of cloth is treasonous.

Forget about him stepping on the flag! The concept of the video was to drop the flag down and show the hoods of America, him walking on the flag is not what he was intentionally trying to do to desecrate the Flag. Him walking on the flag is the part of the music video that you're not gonna see when it comes out, because that's not what he was trying to accomplish in the video. But of course when you see the video, you're only gonna pay attention to Wayne walking on the Flag, instead of the concept which is to show that the hood is the only America they know, because they aren't fortunate like most rich spoiled kids are. I wouldn't expect most people who do not live in the hood to understand. Also for everybody that keeps on saying that the Flag was dropped on purpose & that he looked at the ground so he knew that the Flag was there. NO FU*KING **** the Flag was dropped on purpose, did you see what was revealed behind the Flag when it was dropped, or are you that ignorant? All those people weren't standing behind the Flag because they wanted Wayne's Autograph, They Were Part Of The Video! & what people don't understand (because TMZ stay telling BS) is that when he said he didn't step on the Flag on purpose, he meant that he didn't step on it intentionally to desecrate the Flag like most people stay saying. He had to continue performing because him walking on the Flag is the part of the music video that you're not gonna see!!!

Why are you guys worrying about whether or not he stepped on the flag, there are more important things going on around the world than to worry about simple sh*t like this. Smh!! Get a life!

So its okay for the government to rob us blind, but once the flag hits it's a disgrace? There;s more serious issues out there then the flag falling. Americans have disrespected this country for years now. GET OVER IT!!!! and if he did do it on purpose then good for him,. Take care of the hood first then send money to other countries.

STFU    


Ridiculous acts like this will not add to his pockets.
Pee-wee herman can’t seem to get out his own way. That cough-syrup/codeine combination has clearly ate up his remaining brain cells.

First off they said the flag falling was an accident bull**** because the crowd was behind him at the time.So what were they going to do show the flag and not show the crowd gathered?????I feel even if he didn't see the flag fall he must of know something was under his feet, yes I understand he was spitting lyrics, but if you do not notice your surroundings you're probably hocked up on some sizzurp again smh
