There's one surefire way to get publicity in this country, and that's to "accidentally" expose an intimate part of your naked body during what's now commonly referred to as a wardrobe malfunction. The second way, apparently, is to be caught on video stepping all over an American flag. Lil Wayne may be under fire for the latter, but let's just take a brief moment to heave a collective sigh of relief he's not making headlines for the former, okay? (Lil' Wayne's probably-tattooed, gold-toothed penis: NOW YOU CAN'T MENTALLY UNSEE IT.)
So if you missed the flag freakout, it's all centered around the music video Lil Wayne was filming in New Orleans over the weekend. In the clip, an American flag falls to the ground behind him, then he proceeds to walk back and forth on it while singing "God Bless Amerika."
Predictable, plenty of people went insane with rage. In fact, reactions may have been a Lil too much for Wayne -- because wait until you hear his excuse for the flag-trampling.
