1. This video of Lil Wayne filming a music video for his track “God Bless America” off his album I Am Not A Human Being II stirred a lot of controversy yesterday for its alleged depiction of the rapper trampling on an American flag.
2. Weezy responded on Twitter this morning to the internet flack he received as the video was passed around.
Lil Wayne WEEZY F
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
3. That didn’t stop everyone from wanting to be really upset about it, though.
