Lil Bow Wow pretended he was on a private jet, and got massively called out

Bow Wow – aka former kid rapper Lil Bow Wow, and star of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift – is still going strong despite turning 30 this year.

This week he posted a photo on Instagram that seemed to imply that he was jet-setting off on a private aircraft, on the press tour for the reality show Growing Up Hip-Hop. Not unusual behaviour for a platinum-selling rapper, tbh.

Only that’s not the whole story – as shared by Fake Watch Busta, at the same time he posted it, someone Snapped to say that Bow Wow was actually on their regular, commercial flight to New York.


Busted. To be fair, he never actually said in the post that he was flying on the jet in the photo – just massively implied it.

Maybe he needs to reprise his role in Fast and Furious 9?

And now haters online are taking it one step further. They’ve started the #BowWowChallenge, to see if you can fake it like Bow Wow
