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?

Look like 8% are a bunch of morons. He knew that flag was hanging and that they planned to drop it-whether he was not looking or was focusing on his rhymes-he knew that flag was on the ground. The flag shouldn't have been dropped on the ground in the first place and all those idiot adults in the background supporting that crap. It sickins me.

Regardless of if he meant to or not, the flag should NEVER touch the ground. it is disrespectful to even allow it to fall like that and that he didn't take notice that he was stepping all over it.

Ok I don't even like Lil Wayne but why is this such a big deal? Its just a piece of cloth. Just because it happens to be a flag shouldn't mean anything cause that all it is, A FLAG. Who cares what its suppose to represent.

HE WASN'T EVEN DISRESPECTING THE FLAG. WALKING ON A FLAG AND TRAMPLING IS TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. IT'S NOT LIKE HE WAS TWISTING HIS FOOT OR STOMPING LIKE HE WAS TRYING PUT A CIGARET OUT ON IT IN DISRESPECT. THE MAN WAS SHOOTING A VIDEO.IF THE FLAG WAS PAINTED ON THE GROUND AND YOU WALKED ACROSS IT IS THAT TRAMPLING THE FLAG? GET THE F OUT OF HERE WITH THIS BS!

The men and women of our nation did not give their lives or dedication to have some arrogant person disrespect our nation as he did. Although I blame Lil and the producers, they both were in the wrong and broke several etiquette rules with how the flag was treated. He clearly saw the flag on the ground and it hit him on the way down so he also felt it drop behind him. I truly hope that this video when completed FAILS! It makes me sick, our own veterans have to fight for benefits yet this “performer” who pulls in millions for being a schmuck still has the protection of the amendments our loved ones die and fight for. He just sent a big FU to all those service people past to current and their families.
