The rapper, whose real name is Shad Moss and who was formerly known as Lil’ Bow Wow (back when he was, you know, little), posted a pic on Instagram that started a ruckus. The picture shows a private jet at an airport with a caption about traveling for a press run.
Here’s the pic in question:
Nothing too crazy about that, right? Unfortunately, Bow Wow got caught in a lie. Somebody Snapchatted the flight Bow Wow was actually on–which was a commercial flight. The Snap says, “this guy lil bow wow is on my flight to NY. But on Instagram he posted a picture of a private jet captioned ‘traveling to NY today’ smh.” It featured a pic of the rapper slumped back in his seat on the plane.
What’s worse is that it turns out the photo he put on Instagram is just a stock photo that he ripped off the internet. He didn’t even take it himself.
On the bright side, people are having a field day with this. The “Bow Wow Challenge” erupted on Twitter. People are posting pics of something glamorous on one side, and then the false reality on the other.
Here are the best ones:
