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.

As far as I'm concerned, Lil Wayne (who I was NEVER a fan of to begin with) DISRESPECTED our American Flag...BIG-TIME!!!!! Case closed. Peace.

I don't believe a word of his excuse. Maybe the 1st time he didn't know but then after that he definitely knew he was stomping on it. This arrogant little ass is always making excuses for the stupid shit he does and wants everyone to believe he's innocent. It's all about poor me shit with him. He's a poor excuse of a man and artist if you can call him either, personally I wouldn't.

True enough/ if another race would have stomped on this flag in city in order to make a video they would never hear the end of it. This country is held hostage by guilt+ fear+ resentment. All this because we feel it insensitive to the blacks resentment of centuries past. Even the most ignorant of individuals realizes that this "Hands Off" treatment that are shown to this race is not good for them or anyone else. With it comes a false sense of security that makes the "SEWER RATS" believe that they (because of color) can get away with anything! All this (turn the other cheek) is not going to do anything but make the criminals bolder and make the rest of us more irritated. This road leads to a bad bad ending. Just like Zimmerman & the circus act to come. All anyone knows is that a black boy was shot by a white "YES HE IS WHITE" and nobody would raise an eyebrow if the rolls were reversed as they so often are. Still- we must be tolerant and prove how society is so sensitive. This low tolerance will not subside, it will grow. This clown screwed up( Wayne) and he knew it when he did it but outrageous is the norm for America.

Oh sure... black drug offenders are so much more leniently treated than rich white kids, right? These "sewer rats" you speak of have it so easy. They just don't know how lucky they are to be living in a country that locks them up in jail cells at a rate that is unheard of in other developed countries. Your bigotry and hatred is far uglier than the act of stomping on some rag.

I didn't get a "Owners manual" at the beginning of this life but here goes- Respect is earned. If you look like trash you will be treated as such. Reputation won't wash off. Bigotry? The race card is obsolete! Good try though. Work ethic, accountability and responsiblity is the difference in many. Luck & change are not looking to make friends. They choose you not the other way around. Quit blaming the white man for your chosen misfortune.

I don't see what race has to do with this. I am just disgusted that he dropped the flag on the ground, and it does not matter if he meant to or not, he stomped on the flag. Regardless of race, gender or anything else that makes us human, it is still offensive.

Black people wonder why no one but skank whites want to be around them? Look at this Katrina refugee! He just like so many others (B&W) are the trash of society. They have nothing to offer. Beg borrow & steal- that's what their violent ass does. Tattoos make you look like a carnival act. All the trash in this country needs to merge in to one trash pile. We can cal it DC.

Patriots are so lame. They need a symbol to cling to because they feel lost and empty without it. Find your own inner strength, people - and then you won't get so worked up about the actions of others.

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.
