Lil Wayne Steps on American Flag During 'God Bless Amerika' Video Shoot


Footage from the rapper's latest video shoot where he walks on the American flag sparks controversy.

Rap superstar Lil Wayne seems to be a controversy magnet. After his public beef with Miami pop rapper Pitbull over the Miami Heat issue back in February and the more recent lyric controversy involving slain civil rights figure Emmett Till which lost him his PepsiCo endorsement, he's back again in the eye of the storm, getting attention for a music video that he hasn't even premiered yet.

A one-minute raw footage from his latest music video shoot for his new single "God Bless Amerika", as leaked by a bystander, is the source of the New Orleans rapper's new troubles. It shows the "Rich as F*ck" artist rapping in front of a microphone stand with a large American flag as his backdrop, but as it fell to the ground to reveal the locals who were standing behind it, Wayne stepped on it and walked over it, with no one from the crew who were standing nearby bothering to pull the flag out from beneath him.

Criticism and even outrage over the act immediately popped up after the clip hit the internet over the weekend. Both his critics and even his own fans found the casual trampling disrespectful and unpatriotic. Some have even extended their dismay from the flag-stomping to the cut-off shirt he was wearing in the footage, which read, "Jesus saves, I spend," branding it offensive.

Taking aside the raw footage or the final music video that will come out from director Eif Rivera, the lyrics of its track "God Bless Amerika" are also getting its share of the attention. "My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This so godless Amerika," raps Weezy.
