Rapper Lil' Wayne is apologizing after being captured stepping on an American flag during the video shoot for his new song "God Bless Amerika."
Video footage of Weezy dancing and stomping on the flag sparked outrage when it was posted by TMZ. But the rapper is now saying he didn't mean to step on the flag during the Louisiana video shoot, reports The Guardian.
"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 drops it's just there as I perform," Wayne said on Twitter.
Wayne then posted a more detailed explanation of the situation on his Facebook page. 
"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."
He continued that he was "fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the hood" and many people from his background were unable to experience all that he has. He wants the song to speak for them and "their view of their America."
But after watching the footage of the rapper looking down several times while strolling across the flag, many still aren't convinced the rapper is telling the truth about his intentions. 
What do you think? Did he actually mean to walk on the flag or was it an honest oversight?
