American rapper Bow Wow has come under fire after lying that he caught a private jet to New York.

The ‘Ghetto Girls’ artist took to Instagram to share a snap of his fancy ride, along with the caption,

“Travel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Let’s goooo. I promise to bring y’all the hottest show EVER.”

But despite the seemingly glamorous post, it turns out the 30-year old made the whole thing up.

An eagle-eyed fan spotted him in the economy section of their flight to the Big Apple.

And they were quick to out him on social media after seeing his fake Instagram post.

The fellow passenger consequently took to Twitter to share a snap of Bow Wow on the commercial flight.

“So 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.”


To make things even worse for the Like Mike actor, it seems like he got the luxurious image from Google.

It’s thought the photo originally appeared on a Fort Lauderdale website.

Since Bow Wow – real name Shad Moss – has been caught out, Twitter is full of hilarious responses to his lie.

The hashtag #bowwowchallenge is trending on the social media site.

And fans are using his deceiving Insta post as inspiration to fake their own luxury lifestyles.

However, some hardcore Bow Wow fans are defending the rapper.

One user simply states, “He didnt lie he didnt say he was on the plane.”

While another said,

“He didn’t actually SAY that he was on this particular Jet, or that this Jet was his. So he didn’t lie about anything.”

Last year, Bow Wow revealed he is going to retire from rapping. His upcoming album – NYLTH – will be his last one.

The star is yet to comment on the scandal but has not deleted the post.
