Rapper Claims Video Was A Misunderstanding
After a video hits the internet showing him stomping on the American flag, rapper Lil Wayne posts a statement on his Facebook page apologizing for the incident and calling it a misunderstanding.
Rapper Lil Wayne is doing some pretty fancy footwork today. No, we don't mean that he's trying out some new moves for his next music video. We're talking about the intense two-stepping he's doing thanks to the controversy surrounding a behind-the-scenes video that hit the internet on Monday. In the clips, Wayne was seen stomping on an American flag and he found out real quick that people don't take too kindly to flag desecration in this country.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Wayne said:
It's interesting to note that though Wayne apologizes profusely and says that the final edit would never show the flag on the ground, he doesn't deny stepping on it. He just apologizes for the fact that the public saw him do it.
Lil Wayne suffered a frightening medical scare earlier this year when he collapsed and was near death due to what some initially thought was a codeine overdose. But the real culprit turned out to be a serious seizure condition.
