Lil Wayne didn’t show much respect for the American flag while shooting his new music video for “God Bless Amerika” in New Orleans. During a video taken while on set over the weekend, Weezy can be seen walking all over the flag that had served as his backdrop after it fell to the ground.
It seems doubtful that Lil Wayne didn’t realize what he was walking on, though it’s unclear if standing on the American flag was an intentional part of the music video. “God Bless Amerika” already has some controversial lyrics, including, “My country ’tis of thee / Sweet land of kill ’em all and let ’em die / God bless Amerika / This ole’ godless Amerika.”
Thus far Lil Wayne hasn’t commented on the flag-stepping incident, and it remains to be seen if that take makes it into the final cut of the music video. Who knows, maybe this is just some unintentional rudeness after all.
