Lil Wayne is facing more heat from critics. While shooting a video for his new single “God Bless Amerika” in his hometown of New Orleans, the Young Money rapper was seen walking on the American flag.
TMZ claimed he was “trampling” it, but Wayne says it wasn’t done on purpose. In a statement released via Facebook, he explains that the scene was set up for a camera trick. The flag dropped to the floor to reveal faces from his Hollygrove neighborhood as he continued performing with the flag under his feet.
“It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America,” said Weezy. “In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground.”
