Lil Wayne defends trampling American flag while shooting video

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES –  Rap star Lil Wayne was filmed trampling all over the American flag while shooting a new music video for the song "God Bless Amerika" in New Orleans this past weekend, but the rap star says anyone offended may want to change their tune.

In footage obtained by TMZ, Lil Wayne, 30, is doing his rap thing in front of the American flag, which is then dropped to the ground as he continues to perform the song, which includes lyrics like "My country 'his of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika."

Wayne went on Facebook attempting to explain the video, and his song.

"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," he said. "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."
