Lil Wayne stomps on American flag while shooting new music video

Rapper Lil Wayne has incurred the wrath of American patriots by stomping all over the U.S. flag while filming a music video in Louisiana over the weekend (14-16Jun13). The Lollipop hitmaker was shooting a promotional clip for his new track God Bless Amerika in New Orleans, when he was captured on camera intentionally dancing on the Star-Spangled Banner – America’s symbol of independence.
Aside from upsetting his fellow countrymen, the rapper has also broken the law under the United States Flag Code.
According to the country legal’s guidelines, the American flag should never touch the ground or be stepped on, but fortunately for the star, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., the rules are not widely enforced by the government.
Video footage of the stunt, obtained by TMZ.com, has caused an uproar from fans over the hip-hop star’s alleged lack of respect for the flag, though the song’s lyrics are just as controversial – referencing America’s violent slave history, he rhymes, “My country ’tis of thee/Sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die/God bless Amerika/This ole’ godless Amerika (sic).”
