Lil Wayne Releases Statement On American Flag Controversy

June 18, 2013 · Posted in news, Videos · 4 Comments 


The internet went wild when footage emerged of Lil Wayne stepping on the American flag while filming the video to “God Bless Amerika”. A lot of people stated that this was disrespectful and unpatriotic. You can see from the footage above that the flag fell directly behind him and he carried on performing whilst it was under him. Weezy took to Twitter and Facebook and to explain.

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.

What do you think of the incident? Blown out of proportion?

    Its obvious from the video it wasnt intentional. All fckn media hype. If only he would have released a statement this quick for Emmet Till….

    If nothing else, Wayne definitely didn’t tweet that himself, his PR man did. Have you seen some of Wayne’s ACTUAL posts? Dude types like a retard.

    So they expect the camera man and the directer and the rest of the set to stop filming cause they stepped on the flag? I would end those media life for always trying to start shit
