Lil Wayne’s been in hot, hot water ever since footage surfaced of him trampling all over the American flag while filming a music video. Today, he took to Twitter to explain away his actions — poorly:
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

That lame excuse may be enough for a few of his supporters:
OMG everyone is retarded. @LilTunechi is obviously not purposely stepping on the flag. He can't see where it is behind him. IDIOTS

Caught the the act, for all to see:
Lil Wayne clearly looks down at the flag. Multiple times. He takes us all for fools — and we take him for the pathetic lying liar that he is:
@LilTunechi sure didn't look like you were "just performing" it looked like you looked down, seen the flag you were trampling, then kept on.

@LilTunechi Are you saying you didn't know that Flag was to be dropped on the ground behind you? BS! Man up!

Wouldn’t surprise us. But even that’s no excuse.
@LilTunechi–what a disgrace you are, you knew what you were doing and so did all the losers around you!!!!

@LilTunechi that has to be the lamest attempt at an excuse I have heard in a long time. Shame on you.

Yep. Some choice lyrics from “God Bless Amerika”:
My country ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die
God bless Amerika
This so godless Amerika
Yet for some inexplicable reason, Lil Wayne expects us to believe he harbors no animosity toward America and would never purposely stomp on our flag. Give us a break.
Lil Wayne should be ashamed — of his desecration of the flag and of his slimy attempt to defend his despicable actions.
Want to take a step toward redemption, Weezy? Here’s a good place to start:
