Lil Wayne Steps On The American Flag In Video Shoot

Lil Wayne Steps On The American Flag In Video Shoot

During a video shoot for his song, God Bless Amerika, rapper Lil Wayne walked all over an American flag that had fallen to the ground.

In a tweet, Lil Wayne claimed it was an accident.  He tweeted, "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."

Replacing the "c" in America with a "k" is an often-used satiric misspelling.  It's usually used in a negative context for the country.  Some of the lines in the song seem to lean in that direction.  Lil Wayne raps, "My country 'tis of thee/ sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die/ God bless Amerika/ This so godless Amerika … the stars on the flag are never shining."

Watch the video and tell us what you think.
