UPDATE: Lil Wayne has taken to his twitter account to address the flag stomping incident claiming that he did not notice the flag laying on the ground as he continued to perform. Many still have the opinion that Lil Wayne is trying to back pedal because of all the negative attention because he can clearly be seen several times in the video looking directly down at the flag and continuing to traipse all over the stars and stripes. Sure he is hoping that this one will blow over quickly!
