Lil Wayne: I’m not stepping on US flag in video

NEW YORK (AP) — Lil Wayne says he wasn't intentionally stepping on the American flag when shooting his latest video.

Video
of the rapper from his music video shoot for the song “God Bless
Amerika” hit the Web on Monday. In it, he appears to be stepping on top
of the American flag. But he said in a Facebook post Tuesday the flag on
the ground will not appear in the clip.

He writes it was never his intention “to desecrate the flag of the United States of America.”

He says the flag will reveal a group of people behind him in the video.

The
New Orleans-based rapper says in the statement his environment helped
shape the way he views America and his song and video represent the
people he grew up with.
