Was Musician Wrong for Desecrating American Flag in Music Video? [VIDEO + POLL]
I don’t know if you’ve seen this or not, but it was spreading like wildfire on Facebook last night and making a lot of people very angry.
Rapper Lil Wayne is currently filming a music video for “God Bless Amerika” in New Orleans and a clip has been leaked that shows and over-sized American flag drop to the street before Wayne tramples Old Glory as he raps.
Some defenders of Lil Wayne said it was an accident, but others say it was blatantly intentional. These are the words Lil Wayne sings as he stomps on the flag:
“My country ‘tis of thee/ sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die/ God bless Amerika/ This so godless Amerika … the stars on the flag are never shining.”
What do you think? Was Lil Wayne being disrespectful or fully within his freedoms?
