Embattled rapper Lil Wayne wants people to believe he didn't stomp on the U.S. flag during a video shoot for "God Bless Amerika" ... at least on purpose.
Despite the controversial lyrics to the song - and the fact he certainly looks like he's looking down on Old Glory several times - he claims he didn't see it.
Tunechi Tweeted, "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."
Mmmyeah. Anybody buying that even for a second?
To us, it sounds about as heartfelt as his half-assed Emmett Till non-apology, but we welcome your take on the matter in the comments below, THGers.
