Lil Wayne steps on the American Flag

Lil Wayne’s latest music video isn’t even out yet and people are already upset at the rapper. Filming an upcoming music video for God Bless Amerika, the rapper is seen mouthing the words to the music when the American flag behind him is dropped. It’s obvious the oversized Old Glory is intentionally let go to hit the ground as a group of people are standing behind it. What happens next in the video is what is angering the masses.

As Lil Wayne keeps rapping, apparently has little (to no disregard) to the flag and steps all over it. Considered a no-no in every culture, the flag stomping is a blatant disregard to the country of the origin and in American culture even the flag dropping on the ground is problematic.

It’s obvious that someone at the film shooting obviously had an issue with the flag handling as well. Posting what typically wouldn’t be allowed footage to YouTube, someone worked incredibly hard to sneak these images out of a well-controlled film set to let others know of the disrespecting flag moment.

While most fans won’t consider this an issue, people who have fought in war and others patriotic individuals are really going to be displeased. As of lately rappers will do whatever it takes to make a shocking moment hit the headlines, but Lil Wayne took this too far. The disrespect doesn’t just stop at the flag, but also the people who sacrificed to make America what it is today.

Take a look at the video clip of Lil Wayne stomping all over the American flag.
