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?

Oh come on. Everyone lies. People lie In court under oath right in front of the judge. But this lie is on camera. Can't get out of this one. And no country wants their flag disrespected. Lil Wayne should be hanging his head in shame.

He didn't know?!

1. It was premeditated to hit the ground and be disrespectful.
2. When it fell, it hit and slipped down the back of his leg. He KNEW it was there.
3. He knew how close he was to it, and intentionally stepped backwards.
4. He looked down, directly at it, and showed no signs of remorse. Just continued to dance on it.
5. He did it all with his only concern being personal profit, basically saying, "F-k USA and the people who've sacrificed their lives, I have my $$$."

Most shocking was that no one else did anything, not even the police officer on the left.

Lil Wayne should be brought to Afghanistan, made to walk in the middle of town, and told the American soldiers will take care of him as much as he cared for the flag.

Stepping on the American flag and hiding behind his microphone is cowardice. The worst killers and rapists in prison wouldn't do that!

If he's so macho, have him perform that video, live, on a Marine base. Mess with the colors of any 'hood you want, but you're screwin' with the colors of a 'hood that has AH-1W Super Cobra attack helicopters. And they have brothers and sisters that have died protecting that flag.

LOOKS LIKE THE D-BAG IS LOOKING RIGHT AT THE FLAG AS HE IS WALKING ALL OVER IT TO ME! HIS FACE IS POINTED TOWARD THE GROUND AND THE FLAG HE IS DISRESPECTING. FOR SOMEONE WHO THINKS HE IS ENTITLED TO RESPECT HE SURE DOESN'T GIVE THE FLAG THE SAME COURTESY! I'D LOVE FOR SOME GI'S TO CATH UP TO HIM IN SOME BACK ALLEY.....

I can't blame him for walking on the flag. This country has gone to hell along with you "sheeple". If you know anything about lil wayne, this song has a very true meaning to it. So take your flag and shove it up your ass.

Who honestly gives a ****. The way this country is heading, I would have burned the flag. I have no hope for America.
