Lil Wayne: American Flag Trampling Was an Accident! I Didn't See It!

by at . Comments

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.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
