Lil Wayne always manage to stir up some controversy on the regular.
Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing Lil Wayne stomping on the American flag while shooting a music video in New Orleans.
The YouTube footage angered some fans and politicians forcing the YMCMB rapper to address the issue.
“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,” Lil Wayne wrote on Twitter.

Lil Wayne said he was shooting a camera trick scene and didn’t intentionally stepped on the flag.
It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled “God Bless Amerika”. The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed that behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America. In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground.
