Despite some naysayers on social media, Flavor Flav said that singing the national anthem was a bucket list experience for him and he had “fun” doing it.

“I can’t live my life worried about what people might say about me,” Flavor Flav posted on X. “I won’t let that stop me from trying new things and doing things I wanna do. Some people might not like that. But a sure failure is if you stop trying.”
