wayne steps on american flag 500x491

Lil Wayne caused a stir when he was seen stepping on the American flag while shooting the video for his next single ‘God Bless Amerika’. Following the criticism from various quarters that he showed disrespect to the country, he has issued a statement explaining his actions.

It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled “God Bless Amerika”. The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed that behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America. 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. In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up. I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don’t get that chance. That’s their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That’s who I’m speaking for in this song.

    Lil Wayne says that he didn’t want to disrespect America, but he spelled America with a “k”. That is also disrespectful, either that or he doesn’t know how to spell
