NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Multi-talented entertainer Bow Wow says he's laughing alongside his critics who have been mocking him because of a photo he posted to Instagram of a private jet. In the caption Bow Wow (whose real name is Shad Moss) wrote: "Travel Day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Lets gooo."
As it turns out, Bow Wow, 30, who is the executive producer of the new show 'Growing Up Hip-Hop Atlanta,' took a Delta flight to New York City.
Once it was revealed that the rapper, producer and actor didn't actually take the plane in the photo, a social media firestorm erupted. The hasgtag #BowWowChallenge took off with people, including celebrities, posting photos of themselves, others or things in places they didn't actually visit or doing things they didn't do.
"It's hilarious how it took off. I never said I took the plane. I was right on Delta, right on first class. Once I'd seen the hashtag and they did the BowWowChallenge, I just ran with it," said Bow Wow.
