NEW YORK, June 18 (UPI) -- Rapper Lil Wayne said via Twitter Tuesday he meant no disrespect when he stomped on an American flag during a recent music-video shoot in New Orleans.

"I didn't step on the flag on purpose!" Wayne tweeted. "It's a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drops it's just there as I perform."

The 30-year-old hip-hop artist clarified his actions after footage from his "God Bless Amerika" video shoot was posted on YouTube Monday. Detractors outraged by the clip criticized the recording artist for being unpatriotic, the New York Daily News said.

"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," the newspaper quoted Wayne as saying in the song.
