Lil Wayne Stomps American Flag, Sparks Massive Criticism Online [Video]

Lil Wayne American flag

Did rapper Lil Wayne go too far in his new music video? Footage of his “God Bless America” video shoot is sparking controversy online today for showing what appears to be the rapper stomping on the stars and stripes.

The video making rounds on YouTube shows Lil Wayne in front of a large American flag. The flag drops to the ground (insulting enough, for some) and Lil Wayne starts jumping up and down on it.

“I don’t why he steps on the US flag, it’s wrong. Each individual should respect his country’s flag,” read the clip’s description.

The song “God Bless America” arrives with Wayne’s “I Am Not A Human Being II” an album which is already reportedly heavy with the political criticism now all too familiar to fans of the rapper.

“My country, tis of thee / Sweet land of kill them all and let them die / So God bless America, this so Godless America,” read the lyrics.

Wayne’s criticism of America and her oft-contentious politics is also apparent in other songs like “Dontgetit,” a “Tha Carter III” single that has the rapper slamming everything from sentencing rules to Al Sharpton.

But Lil Wayne may have outdone himself by stomping on the American flag, with a social reaction that includes comments like:

“I think his rhymes were made in China. Take that defective sh** back!”

“you are not supposed to even let the flag touch the ground, or you need to burn it…respect the flag or f*cking move…”

“Move to the middle east and see where that lands your hollywood “gangsta”,ass. Wangsta is what this dude is.”

    Of course he crossed the line! This is a disgrace to all the men and women who fought and died for the American people. The people that fought for his right to persue his career and live free. People like him need to either respect what this flag stands for or get out. I don't care how angry you are, you do not let the American flag hit the ground let alone stomp on it.

    Only in America could Lil Wayne go from rags to riches. And he stomps on the same flag that gave him the opportunity and freedom to do so? What a shame. I liked some of his music too.
